Brands Not Supported
These brands listed are not supported by use because there are no model number listed on the tripods; and because we have not reference materials to link the models and quick releases together; or because we do not have a distributor that can make these parts available to us.  Under lined titles have links to their pages.

Those brands we support are listed in the index to the left. 
Unfortunately, if it is not listed we either do not have it,  or can't get it. 
If you find errors, please let us know.

Please do not get mad at us if your brand tripod has a quick release, yet the brand name/maker/importer does not care to offer or support or replacement parts for the product you purchased.  Don't shoot the messenger.   Direct you anger at the brand name/maker/importer since they took your money.  We only offer a good Samaritan effort to replace those pieces that allow you to use your purchased products wisely, and use your money efficiently.

FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions

What screw do I need? There are only two types.  The 1/4 inch and the 3/8 inch sizes.  The 1/4 inch size is the most common, especially on USA cameras, 35mm, DSLR and all point and shoot, and DV and video cameras.  The 3/8 inch size is more common on European cameras, especially medium or large format.  Medium format Mamiya, Bronica, Hasselblad and some larger video cameras almost always have the 3/8, but sometimes also have the 1/4.
What is an anti-rotation pin? On video cameras, and some newer DSLR cameras there is a guide hole that is next to the screw hole on the bottom of the camera.  Some quick releases have a pin that fits into the guide hole to prevent the camera from twisting or turning on the quick release.  This is great if you are using long lenses and shooting a lot of vertical shots where the weight of the lens will pull and tend to twist the camera around the screw.
Why doesn't the anti-rotation pin fit my camera? We have found that on the Olympus Evolt it has a different spacing from the standard 9/16 center to center spacing.  Almost all of the standard quick releases have the 9/16 spacing.


What if there is no Brand or Model number listed?
Measure the opening as shown below and find a quick release that is close to the same size.  This isn't "rocket Science" so the measurements do not have to be exact, but at least within 1/16 or 1/8 of an inch or 1 or 2 mm.  Too much error will only mean the plate won't fit, the closer the better.

Please note that we use "Quick Release Plate" as our standard terminology for these parts.  They are often called other things such as: quick receivers, quick shoes, quick plates, quick release shoes, quick release plates, quick release pads, tripod tops, tripod mounting plates, tripod shoes etc.

Not all parts listed here are the original manufacturers.  We will substitute quick releases from other manufacturers at our discretion, as needed to replace those that are not available. Not all tripods or quick releases listed here are current and many are, in fact, no longer available from the original manufacturer.  All our substitutes have been checked against on original to ensure it exactitude.  Those that are questionable are marked as such.  Any parts that are used will be clearly marked.  As such this site rarely sells used items unless there is no availability for new parts.  Used parts will be marked as such.   We add brands, models and parts as we find out.  If you have any info for us, please let us know.  We will use it to help somebody else later.
