Kirk TQR-MPS Reviews

A very worthwhile time saver!

Purchased the base and several release plates a couple of years ago. Work extremely well. I use them to quickly and securely attach and detach various ball heads and gimbals I use. Just recently purchaed a star tracking unit so I purchased another plate so I can attach/detach the unit on and off my tripod. Works perfectly, I highly recommend. Much, much easier than trying to thread all of my accessories on and off when I switch things around. After two years they are still secure and are working well.

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...

Very nice plate

The plate worked out great for mounting on my ball head ,just wished it had some grip tape on top like a lot of other plates offer.

QR plate for bottom of tripod head

By Myron

If you have one preferred tripod but more than one head for it, Kirk offers a QR system for quickly changing heads. This plate goes on the bottom of the head, and is designed from heads whose base is roughly 2 inches in diameter or smaller. Being a Kirk product, it is as sturdy and well-made as you can imagine. There are two limitations:  1) The base of the head you use must accept a 3/8 screw, not 1/4. That's usually not an issue these days. 2) The bottom of the plate has two 'bumps' or screws that prevent the plate from sliding out of the QR grip if it is somewhat loose. The photo on B&H's website showed these as screws that could be removed. What I received was a newer version in which the screws had been replaced by 'bumps' molded into the aluminum. The spacing of these may be too narrow for the QR you are using. The Kirk QR base is designed for it, of course, but it will not fit the QR on Peak Design's tripod. I ground the bumps off with a bench grinder, so it fits perfectly, though now without safety screws. I am not certain that this plate does a better job of providing a rigid, QR attachment for *small* heads than simply mounting suitably long QR plates to the bottoms of the heads. The larger version might provide greater benefit. Both, however, are probably as good as these things can be, and not unreasonably priced. I bought two small ones, and do not regret it.

Great piece of kit. Purchased a Kirk quick release system and a of couple extra plates. Can easily switch heads in the field without using a hex wrench or a screw driver.

This quick release plate is attached to both my ball head and gimbal to quickly change them on my tripod. The connection is rock solid and the brackets are high quality, as you would expect from Kirk products. I am confident that my expensive camera gear is secure.
