This is a solid, well made product.
Amazon Customer
To prevent accidental unlocking of the main lock lever, there's a secondary safety lever below it that can also be flipped.

The rapid connect works perfectly on my monopod and the quick release plate is compatable with my other Manfrotto heads.

It seemed like such a simple plan - add a quick release plate to my venerable Tiltall tripod's 2 & 7/8th inch diameter camera mounting surface. Unfortunately,the base of the Manfrotto's quick release lever extends approximately 1/8th of an inch downward about 1 & 1/8th inches from the center of the bottom plate. This makes it impossible for the bottom plate to lay flat against my tripod's mounting surface.

The ad copy's assurance that this device allows you to "Add a quick release system to any tripod or monopod" turns out not to be true.

That said, it's a well made little gizmo and looks like would make the perfect addition to a different (perhaps, newer) tripod.

Just wanted to provide a compatibility warning to users considering purchasing this QR Plate for their Glidecams. The base of the QR Plate is not flat, so it will not lay flat against the Glidecam's camera base. If you look at the customer uploaded pictures carefully, you can see that the safety latch extends below the base of the plate.

But it works great on a regular tripod and Manfrotto's products are meant to last a life time.

This is a well manufactured little piece, with solid construction and time-tested design. Now I know why people pay so much for Manfrotto products.

It comes with 2 pieces, the camera plate mounts to the camera and the base mounts to the tripod. The two pieces can attach with ease, as the camera plate will push a little brass button that flips the lock lever to the locking position automatically. The little click sound and the flip of the lever provide an easy confirmation for me. To prevent accidental unlocking of the main lock lever, there's a secondary safety lever below it that can also be flipped. It's small and is hidden behind the main lock lever, so it won't get caught in the photographer's jacket/camera strap, etc. All the safety is necessary to avoid crashing the valueable camera and lens down to the floor.

The camera plate grabs on to the bottom of my camera very well. It doesn't twist even when I mounted a very heavy lens and had the camera in portrait orientation.

Unlike tripod heads that need a stringent weight specification, this is pretty much a one-size fit all. It feels safe when I had a semi-pro DSLR, a 3lbs lens and a flash mounted on it.

I have a couple of tripods and a mono-pod, none of which came with a quick release mechanism. So the perfect add on would be this Manfrotto RC2, since it can be shared. It allows me to use the tripod more often, since mounting/unmounting isn't a hassle anymore.

Although a tad on the pricey side, this is definitely worth the investment. Attaches quickly and easily to both camera & tripod. Connects with positive feel and the safety pin provides that added bit of confidence when mounting expensive hardware. Some reviewers have experienced difficulty with the locking lever and/or safety latch clearance on the tripod mounting deck. To avoid the problem, your tripod deck can measure NO MORE than 1 1/8 inches from the center of the mounting screw to the edge of the deck.

Very well made. I have used it several times now and have had no problems. Makes it so much easier to use the tripod. I have used it with a D80 with a Tamron 18-270 zoom lens attached and it handled it easily. Highly recommend this produt to others

The adapter is well made and holds the camera very securely. The locking lever and safety lever are easy to operate and should become second nature after using it for a while. I have no complaints about how it actually works.

The problem, as many other reviewers have noted, is that it is not correct to say that it "Attaches to all tripods and monopods" (as the description in the Amazon listing says in its first bullet item). I can attach it to my Velbon PH-250B tripod only if I rotate it 90 degrees from what Manfrotto's instructions say. This puts the locking lever directly behind the camera, rather than tucked under the left side of the camera. Not necessarily a big deal, but the lever does jut out much further than the back of the camera.

Of course, I can attach the mounting plate to the camera as recommended, and mount it on the tripod with the camera turned 90 degrees to the right. The up-down tilt control on the tripod thus becomes the left-right tilt control, and vice-versa (it's not a ball head). That would be OK, but now the up-down tilt control is positioned for the right hand, which is usually busy when framing a shot.

I think I'll try shimming the tripod half of the adapter up about one-eighth inch, and putting everything back in the normal positions. If Manfrotto had just made the adapter about an eighth-inch thicker, so that the locking lever clears the top surface of the tripod (all tripods), none of these complaints would have occurred.

The adapter does fit properly on a Velbon Neo Pod 6 monopod. That monopod has a circular mounting surface, and the adapter's locking lever just clears the edge of the surface. I can easily imagine that there are monopods that the adapter will not fit.

So, four stars (would have been five) because the adapter works so well. Down one star because it doesn't really fit "all tripods".
