Double the tripod screw holes

So, I like to try monopod but I use Blackrapid strap which mounts to the tripod screw hole. Not only it would be inconvenient to swap Blackrapid and monopod, I am sure the camera will get dropped while trying to switch, especially in a hurry.

So looking for a plate with 2 tripod threaded holes and mount on the camera tripod screw hole.

Did some accessory search but no luck.

Thanks for help.

BlackRapid makes a safety tether that goes hooks a camera strap lug to the BR carabiner. They also make a bunch of Arca-Swiss quick-release plates for your purpose - but you need something mounted on the monopod to accept an AS plate.

Indigo-Marble makes something simple.

Maybe something like the Manfrotto 430 Long Plate (11") Double Camera Support Platform?

Thanks for the safety tether thing; it could have saved my D750 from a drop.

Luckily, I just lost the lock function on PSAM dial. My new D850 is getting two tethers

Thanks for the suggestion but what I'm looking for is to attach two tripods to one camera
