K'Tesh, I wouldn't write off that Minoura clamp to quick.
It is well designed to privide significant clamping force along with the quick release you asked for.
Most people make the mistake of using the rubber paint protector pads with similar mounts. They are often too compliant. This is what causes the failure.
I found one near-failsafe paint protector... credit cards. That plastic is hard enough to not deform when clamped, but compliant enough to protect paint.
