Tether Tools TB-QR-004G Overview

The thunder gray TetherBlock QR Plus Quick Release Plate is designed to adapt a camera to an Arca-type compatible quick release clamp and prevent damage to the camera's data port while tethered to a computer or hard drive.

Along the 1/4"-20 mount and anti-slip pads on the QR Plus's top surface are grooves that can channel a section of data cable into one end of the plate's length and out the other before the plate is attached to a compatible camera. This allows a USB or FireWire cable that is connected to a camera's data port for tethered photography to be secured under the camera and within the QR Plus. Before being able to reach the point at which a data cable and a camera connect, tension along the cable which could then occur from accidentally tugging or tripping on it is interrupted by the plate's grooves. Strain from abrupt and incorrectly angled detachment of a data cable that could otherwise dislodge a camera's data port or cause it to function improperly is avoided.

For direct attachment to accessories such as a tripod or straps that feature 1/4"-20 mounts, the underside of the plate is tapped with two 1/4"-20 female accessory threads.

Tether Tools TB-QR-004G Reviews

Too small! Doesnt fit RRS head

By Steve
Rated 2 out of 5
Date: 2021-12-01

Wish I'd seen the other review stating that this Arca plate doesn't fit RRS heads... How they designed a $90 plate that's not compatible with the best pro-grade heads on the market blows my mind. So disappointed.

Super Useful

You need a plate, and this plate provides a very useful second purpose. Significantly increases safey/security of tethered connection

Perfect addition

I hope its size can be more suitable for mirrorless camera body .I mean there should be a narrower type.

Well Designed Unit

I have no worries when this is attached to my camera and gear head. The only preliminary issue was that the plate was just too wide to allow me to change out the battery in my Nikon D750, so I took a grinder to the sides about 1/4 to allow for more clearance. Works great now.

I always step on my tether cable and this locks it so well in place.

Nice - But may not work with all QR plates

By Adrian

Nicely made, beautiful to look at and clearly does the job it is supposed to do. However, the Arca dimensions are slightly undersized meaning that it cannot be gripped tightly by my RRS QR plate - which is very annoying. Works fine with screw clamp plates but best to try it out with your preferred QR plate before purchasing. Also, as another reviewer mentioned, the screw fitting is cheap and soft and easy to strip. I knock off 2 stars because of these points.
