I just got my Pro T Bracket and have a question for you other users. I also bought a anti twist plate. My problem is that the anti twist plate covers up the on/off switch.

Is there something I can do to fix this problem?

I understand there is a quick release plate. Would this fix it?

I don't use the "anti-twist" plate and it stays lined up with the body just fine. I am not aware of anything else you can do to minimize or eliminate this problem without removing the plate.

If you just get it tight in the first place and keep an eye on it, that should take care of the problem.

Good Luck !!!

An angle grinder or Dremel tool should do the trick. Just remove the part that covers the switch.

Questions:
- Do you have a grip?
- What anti-twist plate are you using?
- Can you post a photo?

I've never had a problem with my Pro-T. Well, not that sort of problem. The QR plate is for tripod use IIRC.
