The Spider AS-RC2 Tripod Adapter Plate has been designed to attach to any SpiderPro or SpiderLight Plate and also mounts directly to your camera body. The two built-in tripod profiles make this plate compatible with both Arca-Swiss™ and Manfrotto RC2™ style quick-release heads. Please note: this plate is compatible only with Manfrotto heads that use the RC2 style Manfrotto plate. See below for additional compatibility information.
Perfect, as always.
Use as RC2 and it works great.
Too loose for RC2
There are a lot of things to love about this combination mount. I bought two of these mounts so that I could have a single mounting plate that fits both my Manfrotto RC2 and my Swiss-Arca bases.
While it works great in a Swiss-Arca base, I find that it is scary loose in my Manfrotto ball head mount. I don't think it will fall out, but it is not a secure fit because it is not wide enough for Manfrotto RC2, and it wobbles when the camera is adjusted.
One of the main features I love is that the AS-RC2 is unique as it does fasten to the center of the Spider mounting plate and used two screws instead of one. The AS-RC2 mount is not offset when mounted on the Spider base as like my Manfrotto mounts are.

it what wanted
The new AS-RC2 plates are a must have!
The new AS-RC2 plates are a must have, I won't be taking this off of my spider holster anytime soon. Works great, super tight and fits Manfrotto RC2 Plates as well as Arca Swiss and Arca type tripod heads. No more twisting! :D
Let's be me (super) lazy
Who has time to mount and dismount one plate for your waist and another for your tripod? I mean that could take as much as a minute or two, especially if you lost the specialized hex wrench for the Spyder or can't find any of the eleventy billion standard size ones that are in the couch, behind the desk, in a toolbox, on top of the stove or in the cat box. Now I have both and don't need to worry about it!
