When this has been done, the Quick Release Plate will be released
You can install the Quick Release Plate onto your Canon camera by screwing the plate into the thread at the bottom. The threads on the plate show that there are two ways to mount it, depending on which way you want the camera lens to face.
To mount the camera on top of the Ball Head in this position, slide it on so that the long side is facing the latch
You will notice that there is a long side, as well as a short side on the Quick Release Plate. Make sure that the long side is toward the latch and push down until the Quick Release Plate snaps into place.
