The aluminum Top Lock Travel Quick Release Adapter from Manfrotto is a quick release system that can either be added to a ball head that does not have a quick release or used to replace an existing quick release with an Arca-type-compatible clamp. This adapter is compatible with the range of Befree tripod kits as well as 490, 494, 496, and 498 ball heads, including the MH490-BH, MH494-BHUS, MH496-BHUS, 494RC2, 496RC2, and 498RC2 models. The compact design of the clamp allows Befree tripod legs to fold inward seamlessly against the clamp without disturbance, and the screw knob locking mechanism firmly keeps the plate in place. Manfrotto recommends that you remove safety stops on the plate that will be in use so it lays flat inside the assembly. The bull's-eye bubble level located to the side of the clamp ensures your horizons are straight.

There are cheaper and just as well made Arca Swiss mounts. For larger cameras and telephoto lenses. Look for one's with matching long sides.

IIs Manfrotto MSQ6T compatable with Gitzo G1178M ball Head to take Quick Release Gitzo plate GS5370SDR?
Asked by: Rangan
Unfortunately, I am not sure. The Manfrotto Top Lock Travel Quick Release Adapter is designed for use with the Manfrotto Befree tripod kit range and 490, 494, 496, and 498 ball heads including the MH490-BH, MH494-BHUS, MH496-BHUS, 494RC2, 496RC2, and 498RC2 models. The Gitzo G1178M Magnesium Quick Release Center Ball Head has been discontinued and is no longer available for purchase. We do not have a way to confirm if the new Manfrotto clamp may be used with the Gitzo tripod head. If you unscrew the clamp on the Gitzo head and it has a stem with a sunken top, it may be compatible. I would simply state that as the Manfrotto Top Lock Travel Quick Release Adapter may be returned within 30 days of the original purchase date if it does not work for your usage needs, I would simply recommend to purchase the item and test to see if it may fit on your equipment.

This head is designed for travel tripods, discouragingly the Manfrotto BeFree. It's a little smaller than a full-size Arca plate but should support a DSLR and medium telephoto zoom. The real limiter is the ball head and tripod, not the plate.
