Screw with Hex-Headed Hole
The plate comes with a new improved plate screw HB1. HB1 has a hex-headed hole that takes a 5/32" (4 mm) Allen wrench. Special hard alloy stainless-steel and a special die are used to manufacture these new screw.
The head is 22% bigger than competitors' screws, which provide extra force to resist separation (12mm vs 9.8mm diameter).
There is an extra pitch to provide stronger fastening strength (3.5 vs 2.5 pitch).
The deviation from perpendicularity is within only 0.03 mm compare to competitors' 0.1 mm.
All these extra features and precision provide high resistance to separation under stress.
Highest Quality Material
Made of the highest quality duralumin, it is light weight, low profile, and strong enough to support your equipments.
Hard-anodized surface is smooth and extremely resistant to scratches, chips or corrosion. It is 30% harder than stainless steel. Its surface is heat-resistant to the melting point of aluminum. This is the same process to be used to protect satellites from the harsh environment of space.
International standard dove-tail plate, compatible with Arca-Swiss type quick release clamps (Arca, Foba, Kirk, Wimberly, etc).
Anti-twist flange effectively prevents the camera from twisting or moving.
