Perfect fit tripod collar for the Pentax Adapter Q for K-Mount Lens

I found an alternative tripod mount for the Pentax Adapter Q for K-Mount Lens. It also allow me to spin from portrait to landscape. It's a perfect fit. No modifications were needed.

This one is the iShoot RT-1. FleaBay has many. Any version for the Nikon RT-1 Lens will work. I chose this one because it has the Arca plate with it. I gave $15.00 for this one shipped. What is important is the 68mm inside diameter.

Heads up guys, the JP Amazon site has the genuine tripod foot available to buy as an accessory by itself. Probably not as expensive as you might have thought.

Edit adding snapshot.

Wish it had arca compatibility built in though. Solid item otherwise.

That's why I chose the iShoot. Arca base on it. And it's removable if I need to swap a longer one on

GuitarGuru76, not to mention the fact it rotates. A huge plus on the Q, where short focal length lenses are usually telephotos. I have to get one of these tripod collars.
Thanks for sharing,

How is the rub on the K Q adaptor when twisting 90 degrees? Id not want any damage to my prized Pentax Adaptor. But would like the portrait / landscape switching flexibility... cake and eat it.

No rub, or undue friction. inside of ring is lined. And when you quarter turn the release knob, there is a safety catch that prevents the clamp from springing completely open, but releases tension just enough to rotate the adapter in the ring. you have to pull back on the knob to fully release the clamp.
