1/4"-20 mounting thread cut in steel, nickel-chrome plated insert,ensures that thread will remain in good condition almost indefinitely, as opposed to all other designs that have threads cut directly in the aluminum body of the clamp, rending it useless once the threads wear out in the aluminum. It also allows you to upgrade to a different thread if you happen to change your tripod (inserts are available directly from us in all sizes), no need to buy a new clamp.
Works with any standard Arca Swiss plate.
I bought the C60 Arca-Swiss Compatible Quick Release Clamp with 1-4" Hardened Thread Insert with Bubble Level for multiple reasons, but I like convenience of removal and transfer between my PMG monopod and tripods. I have the PMG GT-2 Tomahawk on a PMG PBX3 Universal Bracket Plate and that is inserted into the clamp. The camera has one pictured, but I also have the PX6 6-inch Arca-Swiss Double Dovetail Plate as well to balance the heavier lenses. Easy and fast to switch to the TR34M Carbon Fiber Monopod. When you get the clamp, (more than one preferably for each tripod) make sure and get the ⅜ - 16 insert for this set up, I use the ¼ insert on the clamp for the PMG HB2 Handle. Very well-machined products. So worth the money to last a very long tIme.
Excellent Arca-Swiss Compatible plate of excellent manufacture, I can say that I am very happy.
This item matches very well with the leveling base. Wish it came with the 3/8 insert as I forgot to order one. Holds rock steady!
My BH1 and BH50 ball heads came with these C60 clamps. I liked them so much that I bought a couple more to retrofit on some of my other (lesser) heads. They clamp tight and have never had one come loose on me. Well worth the investment to replace lesser Arca compatible clamps.
Quality workmanship and materials. No problems mounting it on my manfrotto ball head. Good looking as well.
