The ikan Elements Quick Release Cradle comprises two Quick Release Rod Adapters connected to a DoubleCheese Plate. This modular assembly enables you to mount a camera accessory - a camera battery or wireless audio receiver, for instance - on a long pair of standard 15mm rods (perhaps part of a DSLR shoulder-mount rig) and remove it from the rods quickly and easily.
The DoubleCheese Plate features several 1/4"-20, 3/8"-16 and other threads for mounting accessories or perhaps even a camera itself. The Quick Release Rod Adapters accept standard 15mm rods and feature thumbscrews for loosening the holes. Because the rod adapters' holes are not full circles, The Quick Release Cradle can be lifted from a pair of rods without the need to unthread any other rod-mounted elements behind or ahead of the Quick Release Cradle.
