Tripod/Camera Mount - Do I Need This?

Hello, I own a Canon 100-400 lens with the typical ring for the tripod mount. I own a tilt head tripod. I cannot mount the lens to the tripod the way it is, because of that black plate (shown in the photo). Does that piece need to come off to properly attach to the tripod or is there something else needed that can attach to that black plate?
