Need advice about arca type truipod plate

I have a Vanguard tripod with an ALTA BH 100 ballhead.

The specs say the quick release plate is ARCA compatible.

I want to buy an L-Bracket from Amazon and the majority listed say they are ARCA type fittings which in my mind should fit my ball head.

I am not familiar with the ARCA standard, and given the many loose interpretation of standards, particularly by vendors on the internet so want to proceed with caution.

My Question: Is buying an ARCA quick release plate as simple as it appears, or are there hidden gotcha's I should be aware of?

Thanks in advance to anybody who can help with this question.
