    I bought this with the hope that I could make it fit my arca-swiss plate (Sirui K-20X) as I didn't want to have to keep swapping the normal screw for the tripod plate. After a bit of grinding on the ridge of the FR-T1 and a bit on the inner edge of the plate to allow the ring to rotate past, it worked (see photo). For those looking for something that will work with an arca-swiss plate, this should suit but does require some work. I'm pretty happy with the solution now and would recommend this to others.

    I was awaiting the release of the Fasten R-T1 like a little kid who is anxiously looking out for the Santa Clause the day before Christmas. The idea of being able to use my Black Rapid double strap and at the same time have my cameras ready for a tripod use when needed without having to change the original fasten R3 for a QR plate, was more than just practical and appealing. It was brilliant! However, with a great disdain I must admit that the Black Rapid has failed gravelly in their quest to accomplish this what seems to be a simple task. "Rome was not made in a day", says Black Rapids website advertising the R-T1. I guess they try to warn potential customers that this product was designed in the day or so. The D-ring on the R-T1 is too thick, preventing the QR plate from being properly installed into the head. The quick release lever does not lock in all the way and I am afraid if I position the camera in vertical position (especially with heavier zoom lens installed on the camera body), the QR plate may detach from the head. At first, I thought it was a faulty plate but after trying three other plates with same unsatisfactory results, I realized the R-T1 simply does not fit. I used the 200PL-14 QR plates, which the R-T1 is made for. Maybe, with other plates you may not encounter this issue, but you will with 200PL-14. I am dissatisfied with this entire situation, especially if you buy few of these (like I did) at [$] a piece. I have not called Black Rapid yet in order to return R-T1's that I bought. It definitely was a brilliant idea, but unfortunately with a very sad outcome, at least for me. The quality of the finish deserves two stars.

    Comments about BlackRapid FastenR-T1 for Manfrotto 200PL-14 QR Plate:

    - Easy to install, just slide off the locking ring on the stock mounting screw and replace the screw with this fastener using the same locking ring. It takes maybe two minutes and that includes finding the parts.
    - Once installed, mount the Manfrotto plate to the camera using the tripod mount and clip your Black Rapid strap to the new mounting screw and use the Black Rapid as it is intended.
    - Simply unclip the Black Rapid strap from the ring on the mounting screw, flatten the ring to the Manfrotto plate and easily mount the camera to the Manfrotto tripod without unscrewing or re-screwing anything.
    - Works easily and simply.

    Comments about BlackRapid FastenR-T1 for Manfrotto 200PL-14 QR Plate:

    I love my Black Rapid camera strap and I love my Manfrotto tripod w/ QR plate. This attachment replaces the tripod screw on the QR plate and allows you the ability to keep the QR plate on the camera at all times - including when it is attached to your BR strap. Best of both worlds. The attachment is heavy and appears sturdy, though the original Fastnr (FR-3) that came with my BR strap does feel like a more reliable way to connect your camera to the BR strap since it is thicker.

            This Black Rapid loop holds a lot of gear when attached to your quick release plate and onto your Black Rapid Strap. Never had any difficulties holding onto my very heavy Canon 1Dx and Canon 100-400 L series lens.
            Great product. Have one one each plate and an extra for the long lens collar.

                  I use this product not only as an anchor for my BlackRapid harness but to augment the quick release plates for my tripods and mono pods. These are well made and substantial and give a very secure feel to the mount. An excellent product and very well made. Well worth the minimal investment.

                    With a pair of needle nose pliers it is easily installed on your Manfrotto plate.

                          I was lucky to catch $5k rig falling on the floor few weeks ago. Manfrotto RC2 plate ring is not meant to hold the weight of the camera with heavy glass. Although all RC2 plates that I have were bought as Manfrotto brand, it turned out that they were different. Darker plated had thinner rings and FastenR-T1 is a MUST for those. Lighter (gray-ish) plates had more solid rings that were holding 300mm prime lens before; however, I decided to upgrade them anyway. These lighter plates with thick rings turned out to have smaller mounting holes that needed to be drilled to accommodate the FastenR-T1 (minor effort). I am not sure if these plates are spin-offs or not though. Overall, I wish I knew about FastenR-T1 when earlier. It is a very good quality product.

                            This item is well made and is the ideal replacement part if you want to use a QR plate and a BlackRapid strap at the same time. The fold down loop is actually a little easier to connect with the caribiner than the regular BlackRapid posts because the opening is larger. You will need a small screw driver (about 0.10 inch flat blade) to remove the original and install this piece. The C clip is included because the original C clip may expand on removal.

                            It may fit plates other than the 200PL-14, depending on the dimensions of the original part.

                              This product is used with the Black Rapid RS Extreme Sports Strap. It replaces the screw mount on the Manfrotto Quick Release plate system.

                                I bought this with the hope that I could make it fit my arca-swiss plate (Sirui K-20X) as I didn't want to have to keep swapping the normal screw for the tripod plate. After a bit of grinding on the ridge of the FR-T1 and a bit on the inner edge of the plate to allow the ring to rotate past, it worked (see photo). For those looking for something that will work with an arca-swiss plate, this should suit but does require some work. I'm pretty happy with the solution now and would recommend this to others.

                                  I can now unhook my Black Rapid strap and put my camera on my Manfrotto tripod without having to unscrew the strap connection and screw on the quick release plate. This replaces the connection screw on the quick release plate, and allows direct connection to the Black Rapid strap.

                                    I like it, but it does seem to be underwhelming. Other brands have nicer mechanisms but their system isn't as comprehensive.

                                      Both my tripod and monopod are Manfrotto, so I bought a few of these fasteners (one for my camera body and another one for my tripod mount on my Canon 100-400mm lens). It's been very secure and was easy to attach. It tucks away nicely when having to use the tripod or monopod. A great investment!

                                            I ordered this with my black rapid strap and Manfrotto 200PL-14 but it turns out that I didn't need it because the Manfrotto plate includes a ring attachment. The black rapid product is well made and more attractive than the manfrotto ring but it also swings freely so that it drops down and interferes with quickly placing the camera on the tripod or setting it down on a flat surface.
