The Quick Snap is designed to let you quickly snap on and off any accessory you need mounted onto your dslr cage or shoulder rig. It has a male 1/4-20 thread, plus a removable 1/4 thread hex nut and a female 1/4-20 female thread on the quick release plate. This allows for the base plate to be screwed into anything that has 1/4-20 thread, than take the quick release plate and screw it onto your accessory for example a friction arm then simply slide the quick release plate onto the Quick Snap's Base plate to make the connection. The Quick Snap makes it effortless and easy to add accessories to your existing video rig, no more screwing things on and off. It is 100% CNC machined, made from aircraft aluminum material.
