I have been using the Fittest LB-XE1/XE2 baseplate and grip for a year or two now and I decided to fit the "L" bracket part to the base for portrait shooting.

Unfortunately there has been a production error in machining the dovetail specs compared to the base plate and the vertical plate is about 0.5mm thinner than it should be.

I have added some shims to the plate to make up the difference but it is still not perfect, plus the receipt for it is long gone.

What I would like to do is purchase another unit, but obviously from another supplier and I want to know if anyone can recommend a better unit without this discrepancy.

There are several options available on the net but you can't judge whether they are OK or not.

Anybody using this combination that does't require adjusting the clamp everytime?

I have the Sunwayfoto Quick Release tripod head.

Hello flyer, actually I haven't understood your problem quite well. Anyways here's the grip I use on my X-E2. It's one of those chineses, they all are.
I only use the L baseplate, I don't use the side part for the vertical shoot nor I ever tried to mount it. The grip works quite well but every now and then, if I use the 55-200 shooting vertically on the tripod, I have to tight the screw in the quick release plate because it gets loose.
I've attached the side part only to show you how it is.

Actually I cannot attach the other 2 pictures, but you can see them on the gallery in the main page.
