    Hi folks,
    My lens plate(Wimberley P-50), is jammed to the tripod collar of my lens(Sigma 150-500mm OS). I tried to remove it manually, but haven't had any success yet. I guess i've even messed up the lever hole of the screw of the plate. Now the lever is not properly fitting into the screw in order to detach the plate from the tripod collar. Im scared that forcing the plate to rotate too much might physically damage it (As it is, nor the screw,neither the plate is rotating even a bit). Any suggestions on how jammed the lens plate can be removed from the tripod collar? :confused:

    Regards,
    Vishwatej Pawar
