How to find the right quick release
Follow our steps for measuring your head
And check our list to find the one you need.

If you are unable to locate what you need here you may email us photos like those below showing your head and your measurements and we may be able to give a recommendation.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here we have a Manfrotto head (on the left) and a Promaster head with a missing quick release.

bulletMeasure the length and width of the opening and then try to find the best fit.
bulletOne thing that must be taken into account is that the quick release that we have may not be the exact size of your opening.  If our quick release is slightly smaller (2 or 3mm or an 1/8" at most) it should lock in and hold your camera because of the rotating locking cam.
bulletBe sure when you measure the locking lever is in the open position and allow about 1/4 of an inch or about 2mm.
bulletMeasure the TOP of the opening. (Do not slide the ruler under the beveled edge)
bulletWatch for protrusions such as those on the picture on the right. 
These protrusions or tabs are what help some quick releases
lock.  If yours has them then you will need to get the quick
releases with the notches like the QS-01 and QS-02 as
shown below.
bulletSometimes you get lucky, like in the picture to the left,
and the quick release plate is listed on the head in the hole where the quick release fits..








 



 

After measuring both openings we were able to find our needed quick releases the Manfrotto is an easy fit as you can see. The ProMaster plate is bigger on top then what we measured that's because the bottom part of the quick release is not the same size as the top, see below. But it fits and locks into the opening just fine
