Hi! I love the idea of using the cheap quick release plates to mount accessories because they are light and easy to take on or off.
Just ONE problem! I can’t find any good way to mount them to my rig. I have a suitable 1/4″ hole on a rail block but I can’t find a screw that will go through my rail block and tighten onto the bottom of the quick release. In order that it doesn’t slide around it either needs to be tightened from the top back through onto the railblock or from the back right?
I’ll try to make my question a little less convoluted: How are you mounting your quick release base to your rig? All I can think of is a 1/4″ to 1/4″ coupler which would be impossible to keep tight, or a very long screw which goes through the entire rail block and up into the quick release base.
All these accessories on ebay and I can’t find a single reliable way to mount a simple base plate to the rig. Hotshoe mounts are too flimsy and always come loose when I move my rig around.
Any ideas appreciated!
