Quick Release Caddy

 I use my tripod with several different pochade outfits, equipped with their own quick release plates, as well as my camera, which isn't; so I need to have a separate plate on hand, but not taking up the space on the tripod head. Using a hose clamp and a 1/4" 20 nut, I fashioned a quick release caddy. After hacking out an opening in the hose clamp strap and supergluing the nut to the underside, I attached the hose clamp to the tripod leg and can now tote the quick release plate by screwing it into the nut.
