Arca Swiss plate and Manfrotto clamp not included. Compatable with Manfrotto RC2 quick release plate systems. This small and light weight adapter allows you to secure your Arca Swiss quick release plate into an RC2 compatable Manfrotto tripod clamp. If you are into photography like I am, then I am sure you can understand how much of a pain it is to constantly be screwing on and off various quick release plates in order to use your favorite camera accessories. This adapter is the fast solution to that problem! Just slide the Arca Swiss plate into the adapter, and lock into your Manfrotto clamp.

@alitech Thanks for the comment, alitech. I've updated the description to include the details you've provided. The reason it is not available in a metal material is because of the cost. This would be a minimum $100 adapter, and I doubt anyone would shell out that kind of money for an adapter. As for how secure this is, it all depends on your camera setup and use this adapter at your own risk. If you have a very heavy professional setup, then don't use an adapter. However, I've had a Nikon D300 with my 400mm lens on this adapter and I have found it to be very secure. No issues whatsoever.

This is great. What you fail to mention is if this is for an Manfrotto RC2 quick release plate or another. The model number 725B refers to a tripod, not a head. If you can be specific and tell us if this is a will make an arca swiss plate into an RC2 plate. Furthermore, I would prefer if this was offered in metal instead of plastic. Not sure it will survive as a plastic product to be honest. "Strong and flexible plastic" doesn't fill me with a lot of confidence when I have a 1.5 KG DSLR on this with a 2 KG lens attached.
