The Kirk QRC-1 Quick Release Clamp is a 1" long clamp that is compatible with all Arca Swiss-type plates and mounts. The clamp is made of lightweight aluminum and stainless steel construction, to provide long-lasting dependability. No internal mechanisms are exposed, and this clamp engineered with safety stop relief grooves that provide improved versatility when mated with Kirk camera plates. Kirk plates are designed so that they will slide halfway across the clamp before stopping, giving you greater control without sacrificing flexibility.

Just one quarter turn of the locking knob allows the camera mounted to the plate to be easily adjusted along its path or, if the safety stops are not used, to be removed entirely from the side. A full turn allows the camera to be removed from the top.

          Comments about Kirk QRC-1 Quick Release Clamp for Arca-Type Plates - 1" Base:

          I am using this with my BlackRapid. I have screwed the black rapid into this and I use the quick release clamp to connect to the Arca plate on my camera. I have taken to a 3 day photography trip with a lot of hiking and it performed flawlessly. It feels very secure and I had to problems with it in my use scenario.
          I am not sure about using this on a tripod though. Because it is probably limited to a lighter camera.

                    I needed a small but sturdy and tight clamp to attach Canon 5D Mark III and 7D to my Cotton Carrier vest. I have battery/grips and Really Right Stuff L-brackets on both so this is used to lock them on via the L-brackets and they are still ready for either handheld or tripod shooting. This clamp stays attached to the vest and it delivered exactly what I needed. It's sturdy and tight - it had to be as it's all that keeps the camera attached to me while hiking.

                          I attached this to the end of my Black Rapid strap to allow quick release to a monopod or tripod. It is more solid that I anticipated. The lock is very secure and yet easy to release.

                              Small and light. I attach mine to a sling-style strap, and leave my Arca-style camera plate attached all the time. This simple clamp works well.

                              Very light weight, great build quality, and works great for me. I use this as a clamp for my strap so I can easily connect it to the ARCA plate on my camera without removing it.

                                Many uses -- on BlackRapid and other straps for quick release fastening to big DSLRs --(backed up with "OP/TECH USA System Connectors Uni-Loops")...also perfect size/fit with "Sirui TY-C10 Quick Release Plate" used with compact cameras like the Canon S120. Beautifully made, strong,compact, holds tight. Super product. Good B&H service as always.

                                  Small, light, well made, and holds strong. I have 2 of these and could not be more pleased. When you are just clamping something small, these are the ticket.

                                  Sometimes its difficult to get a piece that is well made like this, when you are looking for small and inexpensive. But this is the real deal and finely machined. Recommended.

                                        This great little plate makes it easy to carry your gear on a Black Rapid strap and then quickly attack it to a tripod. It was very useful on a recent photo vacation. Like all photo gear, it's way overpriced, hence the 4 star rating.

                                          Comments about Kirk QRC-1 Quick Release Clamp for Arca-Type Plates - 1" Base:

                                          I bought this clamp to act as an adapter to connect my BlackRapid R7 strap to the Arca-Swiss plate on my 5DII. I found the adapter recipe online - in several different places. For those of us that want to keep our Arca Swiss plates on our cameras full-time, this set up is perfect. Despite being small, the clamp mechanism inspires confidence when torqued up. It locks down tight and is fast to affix and remove. I don't have a heavy setup, just a 5DII + 24-105 so I don't know how it would handle, say, a gripped xD + 70-200 f/2.8 but I would bet it would be fine.

                                            Well constructed and locks securely. Just add a touch if Locktite to securely attach it to your Black Rapid "fastenR".

                                              I use a couple of these small plates with my camera strap, cotton carrier, to simplify switching from my tripod, cotton carrier and sun sniper camera strap.

                                                It's well built, and perfect for the RS-7 strap and the RRS L-bracket. I also used the Loctite glue on the thread for security.

                                                  Using this w/ a light weight tripod and Olympus OM-D. At 47g & 25mm width, its perfect for mirrorless systems. It seems to securely hold Kirk, Sunwayoto, Induro & Oben plates I've tried it with. For those looking, the Kirk PZ-130 QR plate is a near perfect match for the offset tripod mount on the OM-D. The only improvement I can think of is replacing the plastic knob w/ aluminum so it would be less likely to break from a fall or impact.

                                                    The light weight & small size makes this clamp just right for small cameras. At 47g, it is also a great choice for building up a light weight tripod or monopod system. I found it holds many brands of plates securely. YMMV

                                                      Comments about Kirk QRC-1 Quick Release Clamp for Arca-Type Plates - 1" Base:

                                                      Perfect to use with Black Rapid straps if your camera and lens has quick release plates and you're using tripods. Very convenient. Maybe not as smooth as RRS but better for the above purpose.
                                                      To use only on tripod I would go with a larger size and probably RRS.
