Re: RRS L-Plate with Markins Q3t Ballhead; How to slide the plate in with the safety-pin?

That's the safety part to prevent the camera from sliding out if the clamp is loosened slightly, only allowing removal by opening the clamp fully as you pointed out. I'm not sure if the safety pin can be removed, but if it becomes too much of a nuisance to you, the clamp can be switched to another of your choosing.

Okay, I think that makes sense to me.  But RRS plate does not slide in either.  I have to open the clamp and insert it from the top

I guess this is a small price to pay for now to get RRS quality.  Maybe Markins' L-plate would work better.
