Excerpt: I use these hex plates everyday. They are sturdy and do not slip. I have several extra and keep one on my flash bracket and others on different camera bodies and lenses. I have 4 heads that use the hex plates.
Excerpt: This Manfrotto 030-14 Mounting Plate is perfect!! I now have 3, and they're in use constantly! The thumb screw goes in quickly and is easily locked in, I have yet to have on loosen or back out.<br />I highly recommend this mounting plate!
Pros: Attaches Firmly, Good Stability, Strong Clamp
Excerpt: When our original quick release plate went missing on our OLD tripod, we headed to B&H to find a reasonably priced replacement. Even theough the tripod head is no longer avialable the plate was! Works like a charm!
