This holder has inserts that allow me to shoot 5x7...8x10....11x14...and 14x14. When doing a glass plate the glass is used alone but when doing a tintype/ aluminum plate you have to use a backing glass to take up the extra depth in the holder. It also helps keep the spring clip from bowing the tin plate or aluminum plate. Also someone asked about the thickness of the aluminum from Main Trophy. For large plates you want to order the thicker trophy aluminum. You can use the thinner stuff for plates under 8x10 but since the smallest I shoot is 5x7 I just order it all in the thicker material.
