Hello. I have QS-51 quick release plate which is an older version of QS-52. I would like to ask if the D ring at the bottom of the plate is a solid piece? Can I attach camera strap to it (Black Rapid style)? Is it robust enough? Thank you!

Asked by: Rosti
Hello- Yes it is a solid piece and you can use a Black Rapid strap with it.

Will this fit a SBH250 ballhead (41mm wide)?

Asked by: Ken K
Sorry, the SBH-250 will not accommodate a QS-52.
