            I lost the original plate for my Manfrotto tripod. B&H is the only place where I was able to find this odd-shaped replacement. Thanks B&H!

              I had purchased a new Manfrotto compact tripod with pistol head and I wanted some extra plates for it. It seemed nobody had them in stock, so I placed a "order and wait" order with two shops. B and H got the plates within a couple weeks, and they were FIRST to do it. I know they are in a competitive field. B and H is definitely a fine place to look for photo everything ! I will not hesitate to check them next time I need something, and they are even worthwhile to look at when I do not need anything.

                This was a replacement release plate for the one I lost. Works like a charm. The one thing I don't like is the little red screw, hard to get off because on you can not attach a DSLR etc!!! No instructions on how to get it off. that is why I am not giving this 5 starts

                Needed quick release plate for a trip with my camera and spotting scope - it was easy to find and order. It arrived in plenty of time for the trip.

                      Having a second and or backup Quick Release Plate is a must for any serious photographer. Be it for a quick change of cameras or oops, I left it at home.

                                It's great because you can easily remove it from the tripod with the push of a buttom and start taking hand held shots. Its also small. can't use the tripod without it, so you can't loose it.

                                    This is the exact part I needed. Thanks B&H. Maybe I will not lose this one. Sure beat buying a new Tripod.

                                        Lost the release plate for my tripod. B & H responded quickly and I had a replacement in 3 days.

                                            The plate worked great the red post I took out because I didn't need it for my camera. Cannon XST

                                              I lost this piece some months ago, it makes part of a good tripod, good price and it works fine, I would recomend it if you want to save some money and still get a quality product.

                                                I accidentally missplaced my original quick release for the tripod and needed a replacement NOW... I ordered and had the two I ordered in three days... amazing service, I live in a small town in Canada and no one had them, and CHristmas was coming.... excellent

                                                  As an independent filmmaker, I often switch between my still camera, and field video camera. This allows me to change formats as quickly as possible, it is a graet add-on for this light tripod.
