Yes I feel sorry for the O/P

Next I would get a RRS L bracket and attach t BackRapid strap to that

Which wouldn't help at all .The bottom plate still bears the weight of the camera and lens.

But the plate may distribute the stress beyond the threads of the socket.  It isn't so much the actual load, but the concentration of the load in a small area.
