The Bracket was designed to be completely maintenance free. The rotation tension is factory set.
Adjusting the tension will void the warranty and may damage the bracket.
Important information for Digital PRO-M and Digital PRO
The adjustable upright has a safety stop installed to prevent the flash mounting plate from hitting the
top of the camera. If the upright lock knob is backed out, it will clear the safety stop and allow the
upright to be retracted completely into the grip for storage.
Important information for Digital PRO-M, QRS-H2, QRS-E2 and QRS-2
The flash tilt has a lock knob for locking the angle of flash. When the lock knob is released, tilt the
flash to a different position. The tension of the tilt is factory set, adjusting it may cause damage to
the camera, flash, and / or bracket.
