          Comments about Jobu Design QRR-1 Ballhead Quick Release Replacement (1/4" Thru Hole):

          I wanted an inexpensive arca-compatible clamp to use as a replacement for the stock non-arca clamp on my Manfrotto 484RC2 mini ballhead. This Jobu QRR-1 fits the bill. The underside of this clamp is machined to accomodate the stud on the 484RC2 head, so swapping out the stock clamp with this Jobu one was a breeze. The clamp ships with three different screws of varying lengths and threads - one of them was sufficient for my purposes but I elected to use the Manfrotto screw instead since it is hex and the Jobu one is Philips. I keep a hex key in all my camera bags for emergency tightening of loose plates in the field, so if the clamp loosens I can tighten it without having to hunt down a philips screwdriver.Finish is very nice and smooth, with rounded outside edges and corners. The clamp feels substantial - like it could survive a fall and keep on going. The knob is a nice size and its knurled texture provides a non-slip grip for tightening. Knob action is quite smooth out of the box, but I added a small drop of machine oil to make it even smoother. CNC milling lines are evident here and there - a reminder that this is a precision made product. There are notches to catch plates with safety screws. This clamp works as expected with arca-style plates from RRS and Kirk, as well as another generic brand that I have.On the negative side, a spirit level would have been a nice touch. I wouldn't hesitate to say that this clamp feels as well or better made than the one atop my Markins Q3. It isn't quite up to the finish and "smoothness" of my Really Right Stuff clamps, but I wouldn't expect it to be either. For the money, this Jobu clamp gets high marks. I would have been satisfied at twice the price.

              Comments about Jobu Design QRR-1 Ballhead Quick Release Replacement (1/4" Thru Hole):

              It is not threaded to mount, I am using on a different head that requires a threaded clamp, I was able to adapt.
              Previously I had only used RRS lever clamps, but the knob on this is secure enough to be confident with. The machining is slightly rough compared to RRS or Kirk, but the strength is there.
              It does have a threaded hole for a stop, in case the clamp is loose your camera will slide but not release. I would buy another.

              I wanted a kirk L bracket for my canon 5dm2. I am using a Vanguard ball head and the plate didn't attach. The screws sent to attach the plate were the wrong size.I called and sent the head with the plate to Jobu and it was installed properly.[...] the product works well

                I didn't buy this to put on a ballhead; instead I mounted it on a plate attached to straps so I could quickly put it on my big lenses to provide additional support and hold the camera and big lens level. It works beautifully.
