    I used the material that is intended to line the bottoms of tool drawers glued on with contact cement. A friend recommends cork.

    I used a stick down lino. floor tile, cut down to the size of the top of my Ries-A head. It's very slick and smooth, but its rather soft so it grips onto the camera tight. The main reason I put this on was not for grip, but rather to stop the bottom of my camera from getting all torn up.

    Actually, that is part of the problem and why I want the pad to be at least 3mm or 1/8 inch thick. I found something at www.mcmaster.com and am awaiting shipment: a perfectly sized (6"x6") piece of 1/8" thick hard neoprene, self-adhesive on one side, for ~ $6.

    Thanks, Markus

    Go to a better auto supply store, or Canadian Tire, they wil have cork or rubber gasket material, while you're there get a tube or bottle of pliobond.

    Another vote for drawer-lining cork. I use this between my lens-mount foot and a RRS multirail plate, to keep them from marring each other and to decrease their tendency to rotate on each other. No adhesive; the pressure of the mounting screws is enough.

    I just found this old thread.
    I have used anti-slip stair tread for many years. It works well, does not slip, is adhesive backed, and the cameras can not twist on it like they do on rubber. Also, it does not mar the camera base in any way.

    Thanks in advance... Best, Markus
    Go to an auto-parts store and by some cork gaskets. It's the same stuff the tripod makers often use. Cut it to size and replace as needed.

    I used some 1/16" thick foam material I found at the local craft store - cost about a dollar for a sheet that was about 12" x 18". It is fairly dense and seems to work very well.
