For the most part, the plate fit for my Ambico tripod. The side knob doesn't close all of the way, but the main thing is the plate fits in place, along with keeping my camera in place.

Need a coin or screwdriver to attach, rather than a folding handle on bottom of attaching screw.

Pros: Fits and works

Cons: Poor quality, even though Velbon.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

We lost the quick release plate for our Ambico tripod making it unusable. The Velbon QB-4LC was an exact fit. The price was great and shipping was free. Other places had the same product for twice the price plus shipping costs.

Pros: Great fit. Quick delivery.

Perfect fit!

I lost the original plate adapter to my Amico tripod and was unable to locate a replacement. After calling Crutchfield for assistance, you guys were able to get me a replacement with another manufacturers plate adapter. It was a perfect fit and works better than I could ask for. GREAT JOB, THANKS!

Pros: Ease of use, compatibility, price.

Written By Vern, Green Bay, WI on Thursday, May 30, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I wanted an extra quick release adapter plate for my tripod. After a quick search on the internet, Crutchfield was the least expensive. I was surprised to find the quality to be better than the plate that came with my tripod!

Pros: Exact replacement. Has a metal mounting screw compared to the plastic screw on the original that came with the tripod.

Cons: Absolutely none.
