Starting with the M1D-325 Lens Mounting Plate with Removable / Adjustable Ridge, Hejnar Photo is introducing a new series of lens plates with new mounting screw option.
This is a Hex-Socket screw but with a larger diameter head. The head has also a slot and a D-Ring for the user to choose the most convenient way to tighten it.
However, not all plates or rails have enough space below to accommodate such a large screw, therefore Hejnar Photo has modified one of their best seller plates to introduce the requested screw type.
The M1D-325 Plate
|Length:||8.25 mm (3.25")|
|Plate Height/Thickness:||9.60 mm (3/8")|
|Ridge Height:||7.90 mm (5/16")|
|Plate Width:||38.1 mm (1.50")|
|Mounting Slots / Screws:||1 Captive Style w/ 1/4"-20 Captive D-Ring Screw|
|Accessory Holes:||2 in Front|
|Ridge Mounting Holes:||6 Pairs M3 Thread|
|Safety Screws:||2 M3|
|Material:||6061-T6 Aluminium, Black hard coat anodized|
The M1D-325 Plate with removable Ridge can be used with various length collared feet of lenses just by adjusting the position of the ridge on the plate. Further than that it features double dovetails and a couple of utility holes in front.

The Hex socket / Slotted / D-Ring Screw
Many users requested from Hejnar Photo a more convenient tightening option, therefore a larger cap screw was adopted, with standard Hex-socket, a slot for flat screw-driver or small coin and a folding D-Ring.

Although D-Ring screws can be tightened in many ways, using a Hex Allen Key is the way that applies more torque in tightening a screw and should be adopted when safety is paramount.
I hope you found the information useful, thank you for viewing.
