        It works as original and I like keeping it on my equipment, so I ordered this backup. Best price I found on line.

          I order extra Quick-Release Plate for GH-100 Pistol-Grip so to switch camera to spotting scope and telephoto lens. It sure does make it easy. Thanks.

            I guess I didn't read the description of the tripod I bought to realize it came with a quick release plate, but it's good to have an extra!

                      Purchased a GH100 head for the tripod it came with one quick release plate. To make full use of the tripod for the bino's, digital camera , and the spotting scope purchased a couple more of the quick release plates. This way the plates can stay on the various components and it very easy to change from one to the other. The plate is slightly big if you have a small camera bag however it does not interfere with any of my camera's functions. Canon SX50.
                      Very pleased with the product and the service from B&H. Fast shipping and prompt e-mails.

                      Thanks jb

                        I have had the Vanguard pistol ball grip for a couple years now and it works so nice with the Vanguard tripod. Recently my wife has taken up photography and is interested in doing macro. Rather than make an investment in another tripod yet, we decided to try to share the existing with just an extra release plate for her camera. A rather inexpensive way to try out tripod based photography for her. If she gets really into it, then we can spring for the full tripod setup.

                          I am using this on the GH-100. It works perfectly, which one should assume given it is produced by the GH-100 manufacturer, for the GH-100.

                              I needed a second plate so I could put one on a long lens and one on the camera body so that I could swap lenses easily (moving between lens and body mounts).

                                    Comments about Vanguard QS-65GH Quick-Release Plate for GH-100 Pistol-Grip Ballhead:

                                    I use this on my spotting scope, cameras and binoculars. It works and works very well. Much better than others I have used. I highly recommend this pistol grip and its accessory plates
