    Axler QRA-501S Reviews

    QRA-501S Quick Release Assembly is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 35.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great adapter! For about the same price as the manfrotto version, this Quick Relase as more bubble levels, more mount points, a very robust and well designed ratcheting plate lock, and most important for me, all of the controls on one side. This lets me attach and remove cameras with a more natural motion, even one handed. So far it's compatible with all of my manfrotto plates and hardware. Comes with a big and several small plate screws, as well as Allan keys for everything. I also use one between my Edelkrone slider and 100mm half bowl on my sticks, and it's solid as a rock, no slop or give even with a heavy rig on the slider.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very sturdy, bought 2 I use this to mount a camcorder (Sony HXR-NX100) to a monopod and tripod. I also have a Manfrotto QR on a Glidecam. The included plate works with the Manfrotto QR, by the way. I prefer this Axler to the Manfrotto, because the tighten knob is on the camera's left side (when standing behind the camera). This makes it much easier to reach, because the camcorder's grip is not in the way. Once locked in, the camera stays put. I routinely walk around with the monopod on my shoulder and the camera hanging off the end, with no worries. I don't find the bubble levels very useful, but they do add a nice bit of color to a boring black hunk of metal. My only gripe is that I'd prefer they offered this without a plate for a few bucks less.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but be careful Ive brought a few of these over the last few months. I had an issue with one were the locking mechanics literally exploded, with springs popping out and lever falling down. I think it may have happened due to overuse, but nevertheless, I only had it 1 month. The other 2 Ive owned have worked fine.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Better off with Manfrotto Biggest problem was the locking screw- it protrudes beyond the base, so it has to be over the edge of whatever you mount the baseplate to. Camera plate is one way, as opposed to 2 way like a Manfrotto- at least the older Manfrotto plates.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product This is a very simple, yet valuable product to have, thats why I bought 3. I own a good number of cameras and this helps me bring uniformity to my mountains solutions. I find that they work well as advertised and the price was very reasonable!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid And built strong! I was surprised to find a product better than the original and at a better price. I was really impressed with this. I use it on my Ronin and it's perfect!

    question

    Will this work on a Sachtler Ace L fluid head?
    Asked by: Carly M.
    Ye, you can attach the entire QRA-501S to the Sachtler Ace L quick release plate. The plates however are not interchangeable.

    question

    How about for Magnus VT-4000 tripod. Would the quick release plate fit on this system?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    No, sorry the Magnus quick release system does not work with any other.

    question

    I have the Magnus VT-3000 tripod. Does the quick release plate for that tripod head fit in this?
    Asked by: Jake B.
    I'm afraid this will not work with the Magnus VT-3000, which has a proprietary QR Plate. The Axler product works with Manfrotto plates such as the 501PL and 501PLONG.

    can the plate be lifted straight up or does it have to slide out?
    Asked by: James N.
    This plate can only slide in and out; it cannot be lifted up.

    question

    How many mm's does the locking screw protrude above the plane of the top surface of the plate (ie. in the z-axis) when it is pointing upwards?
    Asked by: Jeff S.
    Now that I have the item, I'll answer it myself: it doesn't have to cross the plane of the top surface at all if desired . The screw can be pulled out (spring loaded) and adjusted to start and stop at different points. It only requires about a 1/3 rotation total to go from locked to unlocked, so you can position it to point downwards for unlocked and tighten clockwise stopping approximately horizontal to the top surface. However, it will have to either cross the plane of the bottom surface (13mm protrusion) or top surface (5mm protrusion).
