      Had lost the base plate to my tripod after lending it to someone. Thankfully B&H had a replacement part so my tripod was no longer useless.

        Exact replacement for the originals. With 2 devices to mount, of course I took the mount off one and didn't attach to the second. This way I have one for each device, and got a spare just in case I lose one years down the road when replacements can't be found. Since few have the same mount, best to be prepared.

        This product does exactly what it was designed to do: hold your camera to the tripod!! Imagine that. Works very well, and attaches great to the camera via the nice big butterfly nut on the bottom. Easy. Big. Works

            This quick release was lost during an outdoor photo shoot and had to be replaced asap. Thank you B&H for the quick shipment and very competitive price. It works like a charm. Very useful and more than adequate.

                      I purchased this due to loosing the original quick release, and use this tripod all the time. I have more expensive tripods, but seem to always go back to this one, which is probably why I lost the original. I would recommend Slik products to anyone, regardless of your photography level. I might also say that B&H, which I have bought from all my life, had the lowest prices.

                        I had a Slik 504QF and needed a QR plate. I checked with Slik and they recommended BH and noted that they would have a great price. They did as I had checked [...] and BH was the best as usual.

                                  I use my Slik tripod quite extensively outdoors and doing portrait shots. The plates are nice and wide, and longer than the original. The wing screws snap into the fold position very easily. It was a great snug fit and held nicely, and released just as quick. Very handy to have a few of them at the least.

                                    I have all sorts of Slik gear, and it is all of the highest quality. If in doubt, buy Slik! (and please note I have no commercial interest in Slik)

                                      I purchased this as a replacement for my Slik QR platform (lost original). It fits perfectly and works fine.

                                          Great! I needed a spare for my tripod and its a perfect fit.

                                            I acquired the 540 qf II tripod free of charge and in wonderful condition with only one flaw. It was missing the quick release platform. a small simple addition yet vastly necessary. it was made to fit the 540 qf II tripod and fit it does. works like a charm.
