Giottos ballhead with Arca Swiss plates?
1

I have a Giottos MH1300-657 ball head.  I'm looking to replace the generic Giottos cork camera plate with a custom body plate from Really Right Stuff, Kirk, Marken, etc.  I know the Giottos ball head is different because of the security pin that prevents their camera plate from slipping off.  If I opened up the clamp, would I be able to top load another manufacturer's plate?  It appears there are variations to Arca Swiss, not all being compatible.

thanks
