The Quick Plate can also be mounted on any camera set-up that has industry standard mounting pattern threaded holes by inserting the medium size silver screws through the appropriate holes from the frond side of the Quick Plate.
                   Loosen the velcro strap and slide the wireless receiver or other accessory in until it's against the metal tab. Snug the velcro strap tight while pushing the accessory against the rubber backing strips. Latch the velcro strap.

Dave,
I've shot about 30 hours already. So much of it is good I don't know how we're going to keep it under an hour... I use your Bracket everyday, its really been a godsend. I don't know what I would have done with out it. Well got to go. When I'm not shooting we are logging the footage and working on the story. Not a spare second, but I would not have it any other way.
Best,
Troy Page

I just wanted to commend Bracket1 company on making a great product. The Bracket1 HD was perfect for my recent needs shooting run-and-gun with a police department. The unit is strong, lightweight, compact, and has more than enough space for my accessories. Not to mention it's undeniable classy when mounted underneath the camera! Again, thank you for providing a product that fully meets and exceeds my expectations. 5 Stars!
