Still Using A Quarter To Tighten Your Tripod Plates? The Rabbit Key Is Here To Help

by Bret Hoy2 Comments

If you’ve been shooting for a while you probably have a slew of tools in your pockets and on your key rings that help you get a shoot done easily. I know that I do.

If you shoot with a Manfrotto quick release, or tripod quick release of any kind, I know of at least one thing in your pocket. It’s almost guaranteed that you have a coin, or a bottle opener or a screwdriver of some kind. Without that, how do you tighten your quick releases, or adjust their position?

Well, instead of that, maybe consider this tool, custom made for the job. The Rabbit Key Universal Camera Key is a tool made to help you crank those overly light, or hard to tighten quick release plates into place. If you don’t already have a decent solution for your quick releases, check this out.

  1. Nothing really new here.
    This already exists in so many other iterations and prices elsewhere and mostly cheaper.
    Try Sears, Home Depot, Ebay, etc.
    I have a Sears one that is 30 years old and has 4 sizes of blades. I think it was $0.49 then. It is now $3.75 on Ebay.
