The bottom side of the FFR-001 lens foot is symmetrically carved eliminating extra mass, where the two tapped holes, one with  1/4"-20 thread and one with 3/8"-16 thread, followed by the QD socket lay in series. Then four socket holes with wider diameter at the bottom are there to accept the four M3 hex socket head mounting screws.
Safety-wise, two M3 safety stop screws are pre-installed, one at each end of the foot protecting your lens from falling off a semi closed QR clamp.
The QD socket embedded is made of steel with ferritic nitrocarburizing treatment, making it extra durable having a wear-resistant surface.

Application

The QD system has been used for many years by industries around the world including NASA, law enforcement and military agencies. The design inhibits accidental removal, especially when something is hanging from the strap.
Therefore, you may attach this Hejnar Arca Style replacement foot on the collar of your expensive Sony telephoto lens and then attach your favorite strap to the bottom of the foot for carrying.
The QD socket on the FFR-001 is meant to attach standard push-button QD mount. The mount, may be utilized by a QD Sling Swivel which would enable a sling strap to be attached on your lens.

As all Hejnar products the FFR-001 is accompanied by all necessary screws and tools, which in this case are four longer SS M3 mounting screw, two SS M3 safety stop screws and one Allen Hex key for the mounting screws the safety stop screws.
