This high quality lever release combines the best of both worlds, efficiency of lever release and compatibility of screw release. It is lightening quick and easy to fully open and close the quickshoe, while it has the flexibility to be adjusted for plates that are slightly larger than Markins standard.
Easy Opening and Closing: The quickshoe opens/closes fully in one quick lever action even with hand with glove on.
Adjustable Clamping Distance: The clamping distance is adjustable by turning the adjustment screw for larger plates than Markins standard.
Note: We recommend the lever style release only if plates from the same brand are used.
Though this lever release quickshoe is adaptable to accommodate different brands of plates, it may not be practical to do so in the field with mixed brands of plates that need adjustment. We therefore recommend to use a single brand of plates with this lever release quickshoe. With mixed brands of plates, the traditional screw style quickshoe will be more flexible since no adjustment is needed on trhose clamps.
Convertible Lever Arm Position: The lever arm is convertible either left or right hand position for one's own convenience.
Compact Design: The lever arm stays compact either opened or closed position.
Position Marks: Laser engraved position marks.
