Product Highlights
  • Efficient Switching to 90° Tilt Mode
  • Two Dovetails for Arca-Compatible Head
  • Arca-Compatible Clamp to Secure Camera
  • Machined Aluminum Construction

The Kirk QRLB-T Universal Quick Release Tall L-Bracket is a dual-sided bracket that mounts to an Arca-Swiss-style clamp in either landscape orientation or tilted 90° for portrait mode. This enables efficient changes in the orientation of your camera, without the need to tilt your ball head and re-level the shot. In contrast to tilting the head 90°, when you tilt the bracket your camera remains centered over the tripod.

To use this bracket, you must already own an Arca-compatible tripod head and a corresponding dovetail plate for the camera. The L-bracket fits between those two elements.

Machined from 6061 T6 aluminum, the QRLB-T bracket clamps to your camera's Arca-compatible dovetail plate. This means you can easily remove your camera from the bracket and shoot handheld by simply turning the quick-release knob on the bracket. Both the horizontal and vertical segments of the bracket feature dovetails that work with the Arca-style clamp of a tripod head. The QRLB-T is designed to accommodate all DSLR and SLR cameras, even those that have a battery grip attached to the bottom.

Note! Camera plate (not included) must be mounted with dovetail running parallel to bottom of camera body.

Quick-release knob may be mounted towards the front or back of the camera body, according to the user's preference
The 3"-long quick-release clamp enables the camera to be moved away from the L-bracket, thereby allowing access to the camera's accessory ports
Allows use of camera strap
Comes as a complete, easy-to-assemble kit with instructions
Dimensions (HxW) 4.8 x 4.4" (12.2 x 11.1 cm)

      Comments about Kirk QRLB-T Universal Quick Release Tall L-Bracket:

      Works well with my Canon camera bodies with battery grips. The vertical side is high enough to fit them. They attach securely to the such that I am able to leave space for remote cable. The bracket comes with Loctite to help secure the mounting plate to the bracket. I have used Teflon pipe tape to snug up the screws in case I need to take the mounting plate off the bracket.

      It works on many cameras. It saves money versus the dedicated T brakets. Is not so styliced but is very functional.

      Comments about Kirk QRLB-T Universal Quick Release Tall L-Bracket:

      Function is great. It works well with my 7d with all the gadgets attached to it for landscape photography on a manfrotto carbon tripod. It does its intended job well. Its solid and stable. I wish that I could rotate and/or slide the quick release bracket (without loosening the camera) up and down the rail to customize fit better. I found it pricey for what it is.

      Comments about Kirk QRLB-T Universal Quick Release Tall L-Bracket:

      This "Tall" L bracket is needed for use with battery grips. This bracket requires an additional plate. In my case, it was a Kirk camera plate for a Canon Rebel T2i with BG-E8. Kirk has a long list of plates and the right plate is needed to attach to your grip or camera to maximize the correct use of this L bracket. My plate was an additional $ 55bringing the total to [$] plus shipping. 4 Starsas this this bracket is good but too pricey.
