      The quick release on my Targus TGT-58TR tripod cracked, rendering the tripod unusable.

      I looked in a local mega-electronics chain, I looked on the manufacturer website, I looked in the large online retailers.

      This is what I was looking for. It is identical to the one that failed, just made with darker plastic.

      I am glad that B&H came through when others wouldn't.

      Something so simple and essential shouldn't be so hard to find.

      I bought 2.

        The mounting screw is better than the one on the original plate. It has a metal piece that folds down so you can tighten it better. I purchased it to replaced missing plates for some Sony tripods.

          We are always misplacing this little piece to the tripod. Thankfully B&H carries the accessory. So we ordered a couple to have on stand by. It also got here quick

                    So thankful I found this website last week. I'd misplaced my quick release plate last July and have been unsuccessful in locating it so at my wit's end, I went and bought a replacement tripod last Wednesday but unfortunately, despite also being a Targus, it was a cheap piece of junk. I returned the new tripod and searched for the replacement part I needed and I found this fantastic website!! The quick release plate was shipped last Thursday and I received it today (Monday) and it fits perfectly and now I can use my old tripod again!!

                    Thanks so much for the outstanding service!!

                            I have a Sony DCR-HC96 and use it with the sony tripod VCT-60AV.

                            My daughter used the tripod with her camera and did not keep the release plate with the tripod when she finished with it. Thanks to the other reviewers I took a chance and orderd 2 of these. They fit and they are reasonably priced. Thank you B&H photo. Chag Sameach.

                                              In our high school library, we loan out tripods all of the time. Of course, they don't always come back in one piece. I ordered three quick release plates to replace two that had gone missing and one as a spare. They are well-made and fit perfectly, and the price is right!

                                                  The quick release on my Targus TGT-58TR tripod cracked, rendering the tripod unusable.

                                                  I looked in a local mega-electronics chain, I looked on the manufacturer website, I looked in the large online retailers.

                                                  This is what I was looking for. It is identical to the one that failed, just made with darker plastic.

                                                  I am glad that B&H came through when others wouldn't.

                                                  Something so simple and essential shouldn't be so hard to find.

                                                  I bought 2.

                                                    It does exactly what it was made to do. The best thing about it is the fact that it is really secure & fits like a glove. The plate actually feels more secure than the one that came with the tripod. It also fits my velbon in conjunction with my Sony tripod.

                                                        I bought a Sony tripod a few years ago but lost the quick release plate that came with it. I was ordering from B&H a couple weeks ago and decided to purchase this so I could use that tripod again. It was only [$] so I didn't have high hopes for it working but decided to give it a shot. It works just about as well as the quick release plate that came with the Sony tripod. It attaches to the camera very well and fits securely into the tripod. My only negative comment is that it does stay in the tripod well but getting it into the tripod does take some getting used to. It does not slide in quite as easily as the original quick release plate. Not a big negative though. Sure beat buying a whole new tripod.

                                                        Although this Davis & Sanford DAQRPVE quick release plate was not specifically designed for the Velbon tripod, BHPhoto site said that it should fit, so I bought it anyway. I was relieved that it did fit precisely into my Velbon tripod, so I finally can use my tripod again. At such a low price [...] it was a great deal.

                                                        Came into a free tripod recently, a Velbon CX 570. It didn't have a quick release plate, though.Did some searching online and found that this plate works with the CX 570. It fits perfectly, nice and snug, feels sturdy, and for several bucks made my free tripod functional.[...]
