Solid and Sturdy

Quality construction of the product and integrated design features pair well with the Vangaurd system. Personal wishlist would including an incorporated D-ring on screw base to attach Black Rapid style shoulder sling/strap.

I purchased a new Vanguard tripod and head for macro photography. I love the tripod but but I didn't have it for even a day and I lost the quick release plate. It seemed to keep loosening up and I had tightened many times in the one day I had it. I have purchased 2 this time so I always have an extra. The new one has remained tight so far.

        It works with the Vanguard BH100 ball head. Works as designed, and should last a lifetime if not lost or stolen.

            I Have 2 Vanguard SBH-200 Ball Heads a few cameras and large lenses and with the extra two SQ-39 1/4"-20 UNC shoes I purchased with this order makes it very easy to switch from one camera or lens to another quickly. I would recommend this to a friend

                I picked up a used Vanguard tripod for a good price, but it came without the quick mount. No problem, B&H had just what I needed of course! The piece fits and works perfectly, and seems to be very sturdy. Thanks!

                  Comments about Vanguard QS-39 Quick Release Plate:

                  There's not a lot to say about quick release systems - they either work or they don't. They're proprietary to the vendors who make the tripods and monopods. The QS-39 for Vanguard systems works.I have a Vanguard Tracker 4 tripod and a Vanguard Elite CP-324 monopod, each with its own SBH-100 ball head. Each has been used extensively throughout North America and other places. The largest lens I've used is a 600mm. Slide the plate onto the tripod, turn the lock screw on the ball head and done. To take off, loosen the lock screw, push the release button on the ball head and remove the lens or camera.There's not much more to say - you put the QS-39 on the bottom of your lens and/or camera body and tighten it up with a quarter. Each of my big lenses have a QS-39 installed as well as each body. It's part of a system and it works.Nicholas.

                          It's frustrating to begin with. You have to have a coin or screwdriver or other flat sided object to attach it to your camera. It needs a spinning attachment. I need to find one of those. Otherwise it is a primal piece of equipment. Simple, works well but is not convenient

                          I purchased a new Vanguard tripod and head for macro photography. I love the tripod but but I didn't have it for even a day and I lost the quick release plate. It seemed to keep loosening up and I had tightened many times in the one day I had it. I have purchased 2 this time so I always have an extra. The new one has remained tight so far.

                            I have two cameras and I shot with both and it makes swapping cameras on the tripod so simple.

                            It's a perfect fit for my tripod I put this in my second body so that I could use bothe without moving the plate
                            Only problem is the plate is small so it's not super sturdy

                              Oem original in retaol pack. B&H had a great price as usual. As for design of the 1/20 screw, it requires that you carry a club on you to remove the plate from the lens or camera. The older units were easier to remove.

                                The QS-39 fits all my cameras. I like to have one QR plate for each camera. Solid construction, good fit, easy to use.

                                      Bought 6 of these so I could leave them on all my equipment. Perfectly matches the original on the tripod. Workmanship is good and it engages/slides properly.
