SmallRig NATO Rail with ARRI Locating Screw 35mm BUN2501 attaches to ARRI-standard accessory mounts using a 3/8”-16 screw and two locating pins. It features a NATO rail on the top, compatible with NATO accessories like SmallRig NATO Ball Head Arm 2071, SmallRig NATO Clamp 1973 or 2207, making it easy and quick to release devices. The spring-loaded safety pins on both ends prevent your devices from accidentally sliding off.

No problem with the nato rail, it does exactly what it says and havent had any problems. Also the screw accomodates both hex keys and flat heads which is another plus.
Just a heads up, most nato accessories are actually too wide for this rail to have both safety pins up. Not that this is small rigs fault as they have another version in 48mm which works perfectly. This one will only fit accesorries where you can visually see that the nato clamp is pretty thin. e.g my top handle presses both the safetys at the same time. Even still, it's nato, so without the safetys its still hard as a rock to remove without loosening.
I bought this to put on my Sigma fp Bottom and Top Plate assembly, which is a minimalist cage. I have a NATO top handle which slides forwards/backwards as opposed to side to side, This NATO rail fits nicely on top of the cage, weighs very little and does the job. It does not quite accommodate the length of the handle's NATO clamp but I can live with only one pin locked.
