p.1 #1 · Kirk security strap warning


I had this strap for two years and use it occasionally. It is secure and well build however there is one problem. Just last sunday my 500mm with body slide down on the snow because the strap slide off the strap adjuster. To fix this I had to sew the tips of the strap so that it won't go through the adjuster.

If you look at the picture the strap goes through the adjuster the wrong way





slide off







do one more loop like this

honestly, you are telling me that you had it in the original "slide off" position in the first picture and used it that way?

Gotta double-back on those strap slider thingies. Even then, you have to check them.

they ship 'em that way to make the initial length adjustments EASY
As with any camera 'strap'...doubling back to secure, should be blatantly obvious. Sorry.

I don't know what else manufacturers can do to protect themselves against this type of silly stuff other then require a simple intelligence test before allowing purchase. I managed to spit out my morning coffee over this one, wow!
