|Dual Safety Stops
Safety stops at the front and back of our plates and replacement feet keep your expensive lens from accidentally slipping out of the quick-release clamp. If you wish to use only one or neither of these stops, simply remove them with the hex key provided.
Note to Arca-Swiss Z1 users: The safety-stop security feature on our plates does not work when used with the Arca-Swiss “double-decker” clamp.
||C-10 Quick-Release Clamp - Length: 2.5"
DISCONTINUED (Replaced by C-12)
One set screw and its appropriate wrench are included with the C-10. This makes it easy to keep the clamp from twisting without using adhesives or purchasing extra hardware.
The C-10 clamp comes with a 3/8" to 1/4" brass reducer bushing that you can use if your application requires a 1/4" threaded hole instead of a 3/8" hole.

The "Arca-Swiss Style" Quick-Release Geometry
The "Arca-Swiss Style" Quick-Release Geometry refers to the open-cavity dovetail quick-release system developed decades ago by Arca-Swiss for use with their Monoball ball heads and large format cameras. After the extreme popularity of the Arca-Swiss B-1 ball head in the 1990s, other companies began manufacturing custom camera-body and lens plates using this geometry. Since then, this geometry has become the industry standard for high-end tripod heads (particularly in the nature photography industry). The figure below shows the basic dimensions of the dovetail used in this system:
The Wimberley Head Version II and the Wimberley Sidekick use this quick-release system, so any lens that you wish to connect to our heads must be equipped with an Arca-Swiss style lens plate. Click here to view our line of such plates.
Manufacturers that use the Arca-Swiss Style Quick-Release Geometry include:Acratech
Giottos (only on their most recent line of ball heads & plates)
Novoflex (only on some of their products)
Really Right Stuff
Our clamps have a unique tongue-in-pocket design that protects internal parts from dust and grit. The tongues are nearly twice as long as those on conventional Arca-Swiss style clamps. This added length counteracts the tendency of the moving jaw of the clamp to hinge backward during clamping, thus keeping the jaws aligned with the geometry of the plate. This eliminates unwanted bending stress on the threaded stud.
