The Hejnar H116 Replacement Foot was just released and is dedicated to the newest telephoto zoom lens of the L line up the EF 100-400 f/4.5-5.6 L IS II USM.
While the earlier models like the H113 Replacement Foot for Canon EF 300 F2.8 L (preview) and its sibling the H110 dedicated to the larger Canon EF 400/500/600/800 L (preview) share the same design characteristics the new H116 takes a different approach.
Since the factory installed lens collar foot is equipped with a single thumb screw and anti-twist bosses, which makes it very easy to replace it.

In order to replace the factory installed foot, all in all you have just to completely unscrew the thumb screw of the original Canon foot and pull it off.
Then using the mounting hex socket screw included with the H116 and tightening it with the also included Allen hex key, secure the Hejnar replacement foot onto the lens collar.
In order to avoid screw slack, it is recommended to use a thread locking compound like Loctite 242 (blue) or any other equivalent medium strength product.
The dovetail dimensions of the H116 replacement foot conform to the Hejnar Photo standard, therefore are compatible with Kirk®, R.R.S.®, Arca-Swiss®, and many other Quick Release clamps that have adopted the Arca-Swiss style.
