We have searched high and low to find the best quick release system that mates seamlessly with our products. After experimenting with many different solutions, we have found one we like.
The Quick Detach (QD) mounting system was perfect for our products for several reasons:
Secure: This proven system has been used for years by industries around the world including NASA, law enforcement, and military agencies. The design inhibits accidental removal, especially when the equipment is hanging from the strap.
Fast: Adding or removing the strap system to/from your equipment is lightning fast. Just press the button and push the pin into the corresponding socket to install, or pull it out to remove.
Low Profile: The socket for QD attachment is so low profile that we can incorporate it into most of our quick-release plates without adding any extra height. Another great feature is that our quick-release plates will fit flush within our clamps when mounted on our ball heads; no extra pieces you have to worry about getting in the way. Also, because the mount is so small, we are incorporating the design in many of our products
