Hi everyone,

I saw a few of you were recommending Benro travel angel tripod so I decided to order one and I just have received it. It looks fantastic but I have one slight problem with the B00 Ball head. I just cannot figure out how to release the quick plate from the ball head so that I can easily attach my camera to it. The plate won't slide out if the groove because there are two screws on each side that prevent it from sliding out. And the quick release lock knob just does not open enough so that I can unmount the plate directly.

Anyone has an idea?

Just looking at a picture of it, there's the lock and a release lever. . . Press the release lever to release the lock (the flip part with "Benro" on it, above the release lever). If it doesn't spring open fully, you should be able to turn the lock (while release lever is still pressed) clockwise until the QR plate can be readily extracted. It appears as if the Benro lever should be pointing out away from the clamp at a 90deg. angle to free the plate.
