I noticed the pin that come with Spider Pro Plate has a flat top. What is the advantage of that as opposed to this one?
Asked by: Wayne
Both pins will operate identically in the holster. The difference to you depends on the tools you have with you in the field to maintain your kit. The pin style with the single drilling can be tightened or loosened with an awl, small screwdriver, or similar bit you might have on your multi-tool. The pin with flats requires an open-end wrench, either adjustable or the correct fixed size. A suggested practice is to go through your complete kit to ensure that you have all of the tools needed to adjust or fix every threaded part of your rail, tripod, light bracket, or anything else you use. I have one of these pins mounted to a video frame on my Sony A6000. One day during a shoot, it actually did work all the way loose while hanging from the holster. The lanyard around my neck prevented the camera from falling to the sidewalk.

Can i put it directly to camera..? No need a plate?
Asked by: Mark
Thank you Mark.. We have two kinds of Spider PINs - one design that has a 14/20" thread that connects directly into your tripod socket on your camera, and another Pin design that is mating with our Spider plates (can not be threaded into the camera alone). ALL Spider PINs are compatible with all holsters (the ball head is the same throuhout the lines). Please note - there are benefits to carrying a camera on our holsters WITH the Spider plate (better balance, less movement on the body, locking design feature that works better with the plate). Important - ALL Spider Plates have an extra 14/20" thread imbeded into them so you can attach directly to a tripod without removing the plate..
For more questions, please email directly to us at spiderholster.com.
All the best,

Does this Pin fit the "SpiderLight" Holster? (Not to be confused with "SpiderPro" Holster.)
Asked by: Destin
The round heads may be cross-compatible, but the bases are not. Some bases are threaded and some have a smaller, smooth hole. The products as pictured don't always show the difference. I found this out after purchasing an additional holster to my original holster and belt. Two, different bases after I ordered this pin with the same shipment.

I noticed there is more than one pin for the spider pro holster. They all look alike. I'm taking that to mean that they have different thread sizes. Is the thread size on this one 1/4-20?

There are two, different pins. This one fits the original holster plate - I have that plate and it has threaded holes. I also have the plate to the additional holster that fits on the original belt. This does NOT fit the plate that came with that newer holster purchased Jan 2020. That plate has holes that are smaller and smooth needed a screw to attach (this one: MFR #501)
