where is this made?

where is this made?
Asked by: Jon
There are no markings anywhere on the device that directly answers the question. My paperwork has long been disposed of so I can’t check that. No obvious answers by internet adds. My two assumptions: not made in USA and most likely made in China. Mine works nicely but not the high end quality ( or price ) of RRS.

question

What is the difference between clamps and plates? Are both a clamp and a plate needed to attach heads to tripods and monopods?
Asked by: Nancy L
A clamp is the vice-like portion of the head that is adjustable and can be tightened or loosened in order to hold an arca-swiss type plate. The plate attaches to the bottom of the camera and then to the top of this head via the clamp. Once the clamp is tightened onto the plate, the camera is securely attached to the head.

So can a Really Right Stuff B2-LR-II Lever-Release Clamp (60mm) clamp be installed on this tilt head instead of the one that comes with it? What is the screw mount on the bottom of the tilt head 3/8-16?
Asked by: Edwin
You can install the Really Right Stuff B2-LR-II Lever-Release Clamp (60mm) on this head if you wish. The screw mount on the bottom of this head is 3/8-16 for mounting on most any monopod. This kit comes with a 3/8 to 1/4 bushing you need it.

question

What else do I need to buy to place this item on a monopod? The monopod currently does not have any head attached to it? Am confused about clamps, plates?
Asked by: Nancy L
The plate is the piece you attach to the camera. You place the plate into the jaws of the clamp on top of this head. You attach the head to the monopod and you are in business. You need a plate. This s OEM but back ordered: Desmond DS-1 Bi-Directional Arca-Type QR Plate B&H # DEDS1. Here is one that is in stock that will fit. Oben QR-10 Quick Release Plate B&H # OBQR10
