    I bought the Quick Release Plate as a replacement for one that was lost for the Ultra 757. The plate is OK, metal is much better. The same applies for the tripod. I'll never by a medium priced tripod again.

    The basic tripod stand is OK, its stable and opens and closes well. The heads are another story and will find sticky spots, the plastic will distort, pan is poor,,, on and on.

    If you just need a support for home stuff, all should be well. If you want anything up from home movies spend the money on a better tripod and plates.

          I bought the tripod years ago, lost both plates, had to replace them. This works great, would recommend it, keep one on hand in case you lose it like I did!

            Comments about Sunpak Quick Release Plate for Select Tripods:

            I have used several quick release plates in order to mount custom lighting fixtures to my Sunpak tripod. In effect, I can then use the tripod as a light stand. I shoot both stills and video and have built custom lighting fixtures using non-traditional light sources such as LED utility lights from the Home Depot. I add one of these quick release plates to the fixture and I can mount it easily on the tripod.

                I needed another Quick Release Plate for my tripod. I gave up the "screw on screw off" tripods and monopods years ago. I miss far less action in the back country or in the city with quick release Sunpak equipment.

                    EXactly what I needed for my Sunpak 7500 Pro. I misplaced my old plate and did not want to buy a whole new tripod. I searched the web, and BH Photo was one of the few sources, and had the best price. Shipping was faster than expected. I would prefer it was made of aluminum, but then for the price I suppose I cannot complain.

                                This is a fantastic release plate. It fits two different tripods I own perfectly, has a really tight grip, cannot complain in the least.

                                  I ordered the quick release plate to add to my new long lense for my canon so that I would not have to put on and off the one plate that I had for my tripod. This quick release plate works great, just like the original one and was a great price. Very happy with the product.

                                    Fits perfect and the wide plate provides great stability for my heavy Nikon D2X.

                                      We got a secondhand tripod minus the plate, and found this as the perfect replacement. Very easy to use.

                                        I have multiple quick release plates so I do not have to stop what I am doing to change it over to a telephoto lens and back to the camera fro standard lenses. It amkes my task easier to manage.

                                            Fits perfect with my 7500 tm and it is sturdy so I don't have to worry about my gear taking a tumble. Good replacement for a lost or broken release plate!
