    My camera was stolen with the Quick Release Plate that connects to my Slik tripod on the camera. It was a while before I realized that I could not use my tripod. I went from store to store, and everyone said that I would have to buy a new tripod. Luckily, I found your online store. The Quick Release Plate for my Slik tripod came quickly and worked just fine. The costs was so much less than I was expecting.

    This release shoe is fine for the purpose, but for one thing, it is too proprietary and won't work with other tripods. You also cannot attach to a camera without a screwdriver. Other tripod mounts that I have had include a metal bar that allows you to tighten with just your fingers.

              I got a tripod that was missing the quick release shoe. B&H had it for the lowest price and with free shipping. It came quickly. No hassles.

                    BnH carried the piece in stock. I was able to confirm that it was in-stock on-line before heading over to the shop, so that it wouldn't be a trip wasted if they were out of stock or had to special order..was in and out in 15 minutes..superb!

                        I had lost my old shoe for my Slik u6000. I don't know why I never looked for a replacement, but I finally found this one and it did the trick. Fit perfectly and now I can use my tri-pod again.

                                Fits perfectly. Didn't think I would be able to find this quick release shoe, being that the tripod is old, but B&H saved the day.

                                      My last camera and shoe were stolen and I was left with just my Slik tripod... I've replaced the camera and thankfully Slik makes replacements and i wasn't stuck buying an off brand replacement that doesn't fit right!

                                        I've lost this quick release plate so many times and finally gave in and did a search for one on-line. After finding it at B&H, ordering it and getting it so quickly, I don't know why I waited for so long! It was exactly what I needed.

                                          it holds a light camera steady in pretty much any position, a heavy one upright

                                          I'm glad they still make it - handy to have several

                                            Used as a replacement quick release on my Slik U5500 tripod. Perfect fit and it works like it's suppose to.

                                                I couldn't take that "perfect picture" without it. This essential product puts me back in the game. I'm so lucky to have found it on the B&H website. Thanks, guys.

                                                    nothing amazing but gets the job done. B&H was the only place I could find this at a reasonable price.
