            Comments about Slik Quick Release Post for Universal Tripods:

            I needed a quick release for a Slik tripod that my daughter bought at a yard sale. I didn't want to spend a fortune on something bought from a yard sale. This quick release fit perfect and now she can enjoy taking clearer pictures from using her tripod! I found it very easy to order. We received it quickly and exactly when it was supposed to be delivered! Thank you!

            Comments about Slik Quick Release Post for Universal Tripods:

            Like many photographers, I have more than one tripod... the lightweight one for travel and the Slik when I need a steadier support. I am torn between the two types, one that has the camera screw attached tothe tripod so you can never lose it and the Slik style, where you have the rapid release but can then "misplace" the the post. have "misplaced" a number of posts over the years, but the ability to "quick release" the camera from the tripod overshadows the loss of the post. so, in case I lose a post, I have a back up tripod. that does not use a post.

              Put it on the tripod, tightened down, and put heavy camera on. DID NOT MOVE.

                Exact fit for my old tripod. Did not think replacements were still available. Bought extras to switch between camera, flash unit and spotting scope.

                    These are so convenient and easy to snap on and off. Having multiples for several cameras is a great idea for quick changes.

                        My tripod has been taking up space in the closet for years, missing this critical piece. Its very, very nice to have a complete and working tripod again. Finding the part online was simple. It was easy to verify it was the part I needed. Ordering was easy. Shipping was reasonable. And it arrived in a very timely fashion. I am very pleased.

                          I use this with my older cameras and even on my 4X5 field camera and it holds it tight to the tripod. I've been using this for years on my travels and most recently for my grad studies and I really like this mounting system as it is quick and easy to to switch cameras even with gloves on.

                                    I have acquired a couple of extra cameras and have needed to have each camera useable with the tripod I have without switching this post. These came in quite handy so that each camera is now compatible with the Slik tripod I use. Perfect match. Makes my photo trips pleasant now as I use several different cameras for my photo shoots.

                                        I've always been scared that I'd loose this little piece sometime rendering my tripod useless. When I saw this at B&H I ordered a couple spares. Now each tripod device has its own. An exact match for the original purchased 30 years ago.

                                          They are small enough to loose or missplace. However,I use this tripod for more than one camera. It is so easy to change the camera's on and off to catch the shot you want while the
                                          light is changing. The best tool you'll ever need
                                          if you are walking and shooting or waiting for
                                          the sunrise or set shot.

                                              I bought a SLIK tripod at a garage sale and was not familiar with the equipment so I didnt realize it was missing the QR post. I looked on a few sites and found B&H the most descriptive and their price the best. I'm hooked on B&H!
