You are correct Ropausa.  I'm not interesting in replacing the quick release clamp.  Have you tried using a different manufacturer's plate with a Giottos head?  I called Giottos and they questioned why I wanted to use a body specific plate instead of their universal plate.

Yes, I have used Induro, Novoflex and Berlebach plates on my MH5501-657 head and I find that the calibrations on the Giotto plate are extremely useful and the red anti-twist pins on the Giottos plates do the same thing a custom plate does without the cost of a custom plate.
