      The 504PLONG fits both the 504HD 75mm ball head and the 502 flat based head, and little else.

      Thank you Manfrotto for selling heads and mounts that have ALMOST the same plate but are not compatible. The 357 plate on their quick-disconnect mount is almost identical but the two are totally different widths. And Manfrotto doesn't make a quick-disconnect mount that takes the 504PLONG plate.

      Apparently the plate alone accounts for 1/5 the cost of a 504HD fluid head.

      But price aside, Manfrotto should never have released a head that uses this plate, which should not exist. The 357 plate is so close and fits previously released products. It should have been the plate on the 504HD.

      Please, Manfrotto: standardize your silly plates.

        I bought a couple of these to have extras to use with my Manfrotto 504HD tripod head. Since this is the plate that comes with the head, it works perfectly.

          Comments about Manfrotto 504PLONG Long Quick-Release Mounting Plate:

          We have a more cameras and other devices than we do tripods and it is cumbersome to constantly change the plates from device to device. Not to mention losing the hardware. Having several mounting plates allows us to keep a plate with each device so we change to a new device on the tripod quickly.

              Comments about Manfrotto 504PLONG Long Quick-Release Mounting Plate:

              This plate fits my Manfrotto tripod, and I like the length, plus they supply plenty of screws of the two sizes, so it fills the bill. Some folks complain of the plastic inserts, but I am using the screws for a double attachment.

                This does the trick and is almost as good as the original. Fits my Manfrotto fluid head 504HD perfectly. But the metal pin included with the original base plate is now plastic in this replacement part. Really? I'm going to pay this much to replace the baseplate, and get a plastic part in my replacement where the original was metal? Weak.

                        This is a great solid metal plate but be aware the this does not include the brass plug at the end. Instead it comes with plastic pieces that can snap in and out. The small brass plug that usually has give when putting a camera on had to be drilled out of our broken plate and welded onto the new one since the plastic pieces just wont work for the amount of filming we do.

                              It is not longer, it is identical to the original one, and a great replacement.

                                      Some girls say they don't care about the length of your quick-release plate. Maybe so, but they've never seen the 504PLONG (and plong it does!).

                                        This 504plong is the replacement for the 504hd mounting plate. It fit the hd head perfectly and comes with many device attachment screw options. Works just as I had hoped, great product.

                                          While there is nothing special about this, I could not use my 60D on my tripod and still securely tighten the slider on the tripod plate, because the camera rides out over that spot. With the long plate, the camera rides far forward of that location and all is well.

                                            You'll want this when you're doing 2 cameras on the same fluid head. It's lightweight, takes up like no room in your tool kit, and you'll thank god you have it when you're on the move.

                                            I lost my original release plate during a shoot, so this purchase was inevitable. Personally, I think it's a little pricey, but it definitely works.

                                              If you do video production and use a Manfrotto tripod like the 504HD , you'll want a few of these. I've got one on my Glidecam, monopod, slider and shoulder rig. When you're doing run-and-gun work, these things are a necessity. Constantly screwing your camera on and off of all your different stabilizers is a pain (and you risk dropping your camera if you're always spinning it around to unscrew it!.
                                              This is a great buy

                                                I simply needed a second release plate for my Manfrotto 504HD Fluid Video Head so I could mount either my PROAIM 9" Cage Rig or my 39" Glidtrack to my tripod without having to keep taking off the mounting plate and re-attaching it to another piece of gear.

                                                Having a second plate saves me time and energy out in the field. Now both mounting plates are permamnetly mounted on each respective piece of gear I use.

                                                The quality of the plate is excelllent and you have extra 1/4"-20 and 3/8" screws.
