The point of using an RRS plate is that it doesn’t need to be torqued to within an inch of its life to be stable, thanks to the the lip that snugs up against the body.

I've used a few different plates (from PD, Kirk, Jobu, Sirui, etc.) and didn't really feel like they needed that much more torque than my RRS L plate in order to be secure and not slip... The 1/4" socket has pretty coarse threads too, I'm not sure over torque is some big potential hazard here. I do hope Oly comes to the aid of the guy that posted the video and Lee who posted a month ago but hasn't gotten in contact with Oly yet (from what I saw reading the previous thread).

Knowing Oly's response will indeed be far more valuable (IMO) than any amount of speculation.
