Tripod mounting plate w/ 15mm railblock, 1/4" & 3/8" thread, designed for long length, front heavy, camera packages.
The Tripod mounting plate attaches to the 15mm lightweight rods from your camera’s baseplate.
The Tripod mounting plate will attach to the tripod plate using a 3/8 16” and ¼ 20” screw.
The Tripod mounting plate should be placed in front of your camera baseplate when the center of gravity is under the lens from adding weight to the front of the camera with accessories like a depth of field adaptor, follow focus, matte box, etc.
The adjustability of the Tripod mounting plate makes it possible to balance a front heavy camera on your tripod properly.Note: Since the mouting holes don't line up, please DO NOT attach it to the bottom of a quick cage, versaframe cage or a Sony A7/A7II cage.

Wanted the version with two railblocks, but it sold out before I could order it. This is plenty, the other was actually more than I needed.
I'm using this as part of a small rail rig to support my Rokinon 135mm T2.2 Cine DS lens on a Sony a6000. The lens is a large and weight almost as much as my 24-70mm 2.8 Nikkor! That's a lot of weight at a large lever point on the mirrorless camera mount.
I've attached an arca style clamp Andoer Adapter Plate Square Clamp with Gradienter for Quick Release Plate for Tripod Ball Head Arca Swiss RRS Wimberley to the top of the 1/4" center thread on the railblock and secured a Sirui plate to the bottom of the platform in the 3/8 hole using a 3/8-1/4 thread mod. I'm running a pair of 8" Movo rods Movo Photo PT8 Set of Two Aluminum 15mm Rods for DSLR Camera Rail System (8") through the block and into a Neewer lens support rail Neewer® Professional Flexible Lens Rod Support Mount Clamp Holder Bracket for DSLR Rigs 15mm Rod Rail System. The offset railblock is PLENTY strong for this setup and would likely hold far more weight if needed.
I'll be buying Smallrig again in the coming months! Highly recommended.
This specific piece I purchased so I could mount a Manfrotto 577 QR on, as it turns out SmallRig actually makes this exact piece with their own Manfrotto 577 compatible QR - so skip the extra pieces and trip to the hardware store for bolts and get the proper SmallRig base if you're thinking the same as me.
The thumbscrews for the fasteners are AMAZING. they are spring retained sleeves, so once snug, you can pull away the lever and turn it so the lever situated where you want it. REALLY nice feature.
on its own at the moment, i attach the camera to the mounting plate (you have to purchase the mounting screws separately), and one of the railblocks connects to my manfrotto 577, leaving the other railblock hanging (as the 577 is short. in fact the 577 plate is almost exactly the same length as the smallrig plate), and therefore there is a very slight give/flex if you try to tilt the camera back and forth as there is only 1 point of contact with the 577 baseplate.
you probably need a longer baseplate at the very least so you can screw on both railblocks to your baseplate, if you don't intend to add more parts to this. (which i don't, as i'm trying to keep the setup light, it's meant for a ronin m + wireless servo for follow focus.)
It has 2 major drawbacks, the rod holes seems to be too tight and the rods I got don't go through unless I apply a ridiculous amount of force.
Once I got the rods half the way trough, they just stuck there and it's practically impossible to get them to move either way.
Maybe it's the rods that are a bit thick (I can't be sure) but the follow focus and other stuff work well with the rods and this plate is just stuck.
Even if the rods are the problem, the adjusting system should have enough room to tolerate a rod that's a bit thick and be able to adjust to it by closing the clamps.
The second issue is that the metal top is too polished and doesn't have enough friction to avoid the camera slipping to the side when focus pulling a follow focus for example.
I ended up gluing a EVA rubber on top of it to add the friction I needed for the camera to stay in place.
Con: very tight fit for rods, (takes about a minute to remedy, by slightly opening the rod holes with a "tap",
using a screwdriver and hammer, placed between the gap of the screw holes).
Use this method, before thinking about spending time and effort on boring larger rod holes.
Works beautifully now.
