Below is an image of the quick release plate when attached to the camera. I was just seeing if I could figure out what went wrong. The plate from the top is square so it can be mounted in any direction. You can see that the bottom of the plate is not symmetrical. I discovered that when it is in the direction shown the strength of the attachment is good. If it is rotated 90 degrees the strength is poor. So it appears it must be attached in a particular orientation. There is no marking on it that indicates which way it should be mounted. It seems as if I mount it 'correctly' it will be ok.
