The plate follows the hollowed out design with a central brace accommodating the 1/4"-20 tapped hole, which enables direct mounting on a pod with an 1/4"-20 stud without removing the plate. Due to the offset positioning of the mounting screw, there is only one M3 safety stop screw on the side of the strap loop.
