Very nicely made,light weight and finished beautifully. I do wish that it had some kind of nonskid padding on it , like alot of arca plates have.I’ve been looking around the Internet for a small package of non skid pads and they are hard to find in small packs. maybe in the future they will think about including them with the product.

Cannot reposition two safety screws

By TSE JEN

This part is a junk! Don't use it! You cannot remove the safety screws or reposition them to other two screw holes to make space bigger, to make tripod head non-teetering when you place it on table or accommodate other makers' clamp correspondingly. I don't know why Kiki uses CNC method to replace two true screws?! The designer didn't consider all usage cases.

Excellent Product

I was looking for a way to swap my tripod heads on my tripods. I have a Ball Head, Geared Head, Video Head and Gimbal Head. Bought the Kirk TQR-MPL (1 No) & TQR-MPS(3 Nos) for my heads. Now I can easily swap my tripod heads without any hassle and the plate is very well made. Please do not be deceived by the picture in the BH site. There are no removable safety screws, its just 2 bumps which is permanent (I believe Kirk modified the design) and I don't see a problem with that. Go for it and you will not regret. Definitely worth recommending...

Yes, Kirk Staff. Therefore, I would like to attach it on the bottom of RRS B2 Pro clamp or B2 LR clamp, and then mount the final assembly on the clamp of GH3382 QD. The purpose is to transfer GH 3382 clamp to RRS clamp type. Gitzo GH 3382 QD ball head is better than BH-55 operation, but the clamp.
Asked by: TSE JEN
Based on the design of the RRS clamps you mentioned, the Kirk Tripod Head Quick Release Plate (Large) would interfere with the movement of the clamping mechanism. That being said, they would not be fully compatible.

Yes. I will attach it on the bottom of RRS clamp, and then mount this final assembly on the clamp of Gitzo GH 3382 QD. The purpose is to transfer 3382’s clamp to RRS type, because 3382’s clamp may have compatibility issue if you don’t remove that safety screw from 3382’s clamp. I saw this plate does have caves which facing to clamp. Not sure if either cave can just contain that off center safety screw or not?
Asked by: TSE JEN
This is quite possible, as there are large carved-out spaces on the base of the QR plate that would accommodate the Gitzo ball head safety screw. However, because the 3382QD is arca-swiss by default, it would be easier (and potentially prevent accidents during hasty attachment) to just remove the safety screw.

Is it able to be adapted into the clamp of Gitzo GH3382 QD? There is an off center line safety screw mounted on the clamp of 3382 ball head, so I ask this question to confirm compatibility.
Asked by: TSE JEN
This plate is meant to mount on the bottom of a ball head in order to quickly remove the head from an Arca type clamp mounted directly on a tripod.
