Hey guys,

I just got a RRS head for my monopod and love the Arca-Swiss plate. I now want to change my 055 series Q2 setup to the lever type AS. I see Kirk and RRS makes replacements but none are labeled to my exact model. Any idea of how I can match up the proper one? I'd prefer to have a built in level as well.

Also, how do I remove the old Q2 system? I'd hate to apply the vise grips so I can torque on it.

Thanks guys!
