Sima Quickonnect Back in Stock at Amazon

I'm not sure if it was because of me, but after featuring Sima's inexpensive quick-release system in a recent episode, they were soon sold out. Amazon is carrying them again, albeit at a slightly higher price than before. These were a smokin' deal at $8.65 and now can be had for slightly less frugal $10.20.

The Quickonnect is a hard plastic plate that you can attach to any device with 1/4" 20 threads, the standard tripod mount. The plate then locks into a puck-looking device (which has metal threads) with a great spring lock system. Once inside, the plate stays put. I really like these and have equipped all of my camera rigs with them. I'm glad they are available once more. I'd love to see them drop to $5 for the ultimate deal.

Enjoy all of your projects and became a fan of PVC after building several using your instructions.

Thought you might like to know that the SIMA Mounting Plates are available at (http://www.govgroup.com/sima-svr-mounting-plate-2435377-prd1.htm?pSearchQueryId=402776) for about $6.04 each and even less with multiple purchase as a discount kicks in and the handling charge stays the same.

Keep up the good work!

Amazon only let's you buy three of these. I'll be posting my version of your rig soon!
