Other adapter plates use a profile that is acceptable with all deep Tuttle boxes including ones not made from composite. A good fitting composite Tuttle box however needs to be slightly sanded to get a very tight fit into it's box. So if you're using a competitor's adapter plate on your GoFoil it will be loose, especially if you have already slightly sanded your composite GoFoil Deep Tuttle to fit into a board-installed box. Our adapter plate was designed with this in mind. It is a nice tight fit.
