I just bought a used Kirk PZ-148 Quick Release plate for my 5DM3
I want to be able to attach the camera easily to a tripod and when not on the tripod I plan to attach a BlackRapid strap to the plate. The only instructions with it show that it can be used without safety stops, with one safety stop or with two.
1. What are the safety stops for?
2. It comes with tiny screws that go into the plate, though I'm just not sure what the purpose of them are, they are not long enough to go into the camera.
3. Is there a downside to putting both screws into the plate?
Thanks for any info.
