you may need a plate with a lip ...

I have a Sigma lens with tripod collar - I believe the collar is a TS-21 - and a Sirui tripod (T-025, with TY-C10 quick release plate).

For some reason I cannot get the Sirui quick release plate to attach firmly to the Sigma collar - it always twists around and never fully purchases. I have no problems attaching the same plate to my camera body - does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks in advance,

consider a plate with a metal lip ... plenty of plate manufacturers ... reallyrightstuff, kirk, sunwayphoto ... from really expensive to really inexpensive ...

consider purchasing a little longer than the actual length of your collar foot.

hope this helps ...
