The N3T30 or N3T20 T-adapter will increase the adjustment maximum distance to 127mm (5"). This would be the maximum distance from camera mount to nodal point (entrance pupil) of a particular lens. It is important to note that when mounting the T-adapter (or Camera Mounting Plate - NCP1 - shown above) NOT to twist the T-adapter to tighten. Tighten using coin or screwdriver. Twisting the T-adapter or NCP1 onto to base of a camera may cause damage to the camera base.
The T-adapter may also be substituted for the newer Camera Mounting Plate (NCP1), although the CP does not add additional length to the rail, its primary purpose is to give a better gripping surface to mount your camera.

9.1. Using Quick Release Adapters

The use of the Camera Plate (CP) or T-adapter allows for the use of many 3rd party quick release systems T-adapter with 3rd party quick release plate. The camera mounting plate may also be used. When using a 3rd party quick release plate select one that is approximately 20mm or less in thickness. This will not work with every camera setup but, will with many.
