BW107: Winged thumbscrew for some plates
Really Right Stuff has always rejected coin-slotted screws for our quick-release plates, no matter how convenient they may appear. Sufficient torque to properly fix the screw just can't be generated with a coin. Instead, we've always chosen hex-socket screws to anchor our quick-release plates. Hex keys deliver more than enough torque for the job, are compact, inexpensive, and universally available. We also include US-made Bondhus® hex keys with all our screws because of their unsurpassed dimensional consistency and ultra-high corrosion resistance. However, sometimes you need to remove or install a camera body plate without a hex key available. If you are using one of our compatible quick-release plates, our BW107 Wing Nut style screw gives the flexibility of using either a hex key or the built in wingnut to adjust the screw. Just keep in mind that using a hex key will provide significantly higher torque than using your thumb and forefinger alone.
