Play-free fixing

The Chrosziel QuickLock Plate 401-150 locking mechanism consists of three parts: (1) a movable unlocking bolt at the front, (2) a fork-shaped locking slide in the middle, and (3) a retractable locking bolt at the rear.

To attach a camera with V-mount adapter to the QuickLock Plate, push it into the V-shaped notch on the front and pull the locking lever to the right. The following happens: Unlocking bolt (1) and locking slide (2) move forwards / left, the locking bolt (3) downwards.

Compared to average standard Quick Release Plates or VCT Tripod Plates (mostly without retractable locking bolts), the Chrosziel locking mechanism with retractable locking bolt (3) play-freely clamps even worn out rear mounting mechanisms located on the camera bottom.

For cine cameras equipped only with tripod screw threads at the bottom , a Chrosziel lightweight support (such as 401-EVA1) enables mounting the camera play-free to the quick release plate. For ENG cameras, rod support can be added via a Chrosziel lightweight support (like 401-50 for Sony) in combination with the QuickLock Plate.

The locking mechanism consists of two sliders. On the first slider the front unlocking bolt and fork-shaped locking slide are mounted. On the second slider only the retractable locking bolt is mounted. Both sliders are connected via a two spring-loaded connecting lever, which is moved back and forth by the locking lever on the left side of the QuickLock Plate. This guarantees an absolutely synchronous opening and closing of the locking mechanism.

For ensuring a perfectly working QuickLock Plate the highest precision is ensured during production. The necessary lubricity is ensured by highly viscous grease. Together with the elastic spring mechanism, the result is a low-noise locking mechanism.
