    DDC-G1 Clamp for Gitzo Traveler Tripod Head is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Turn your Gitzo head into an Acra-Swiss I have a Gitzo Traveler head and it has worked very well. However, I recently purchased the Peak Design Capture Pro system (with the Acra-plate system) and I wanted to be able to move the camera from my belt to a tripod without switching plates. Originally, this would mean buying a new head. Instead a very knowledgable B&H sales associate informed me of this product. To use it you will have to remove three screws on your Traveler tripod head (the allen wrench is included in the packaging) and take the plate off. Then you attach the head above using the three screws provided to attach the plate in the picture. The new plate uses a knob to tighten and secure the plate. Overall, the system works fine. So the reason for 4 stars and not 5 is that there is no security pin in this model. Several Arca plate systems have a security pin to prevent the plate from slipping out ... THIS ONE DOES NOT have the security pin. I consider this a big flaw since it says it has a safety-stop relief groove. and I was therefore expecting some type of mechanism (pin or other device) as extra security to protect my camera from slipping out. Finally, it is a cheap fix as opposed to buying a new head.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top Tripod Plate I should have bought the Arca Plate a long time agao. The Gitzo plate was not bad but the closing mechanism was frustrating at times. This is just so simple to use. It is also more compact, love it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Arca-Swiss solution Excellent Clamp. Build quality was MUCH better than I had expected. Fit on the Gitzo ballhead was perfect.
