if you are mixing brands be sure to purchase the screw knob quick release clamps rather than lever closure quick release as there is some difference in thickness amongst the manufacturers and the lever is generally set to the tolerance of the specific brand (ie RRS plates fit RRS lever QR clamps whereas a Kirk plate may have too much play in the same clamp). I believe Markins has lever QR clamps which are adjustable to the tolerance of various brands but would potentially need adjustment with each use if several manufacturer plates are utilized.

PS, off topic, but the RRS L plate on D4 fits such that it is difficult to open/fully close the covers if secured flush to the body.
