Do you mean to change the battery?
It's so easy, the screw is tool-less, so it's just two turns counter-clockwise to be able to move the extender to the side and replace the battery. Two seconds top to get to the battery compartment.
It's hard to visualize this but I now understand what Guy was describing.

This thing will make your camera look like Frankenstein () but it provides an awesome grip (SLR-like) and it matches the rest of the camera. it's also very small, so one can just carry it in the pocket and use it whenever needed. The only problem I'm experiencing is that your camera will never feel quite the same without it...

I am using the extension grip with both the A7r2 and the A9. Nothing at all to finger-loosen the screw two/three twists and then swivel backward or forward to remove/replace the battery resulting in to never having to remove the grip to swap out a battery really.

This molded extension grip is more than just another fancy/expensive L-Plate. You have to feel it to beleive it. One of those "you didn't know what you don't know" until you try this thing, partucularly with the larger lenses.

Are there any third party versions of this? No one has 3D printed them yet?

Funny I shot 3 days worth about 600 images on one battery and it still has 30 percent left. Crazy

Now if i hear anyone complaining they have to unloosen a wing nut basically slide it out of the way maybe once a week. Than your a lazy ass.

Had to be said . Im kidding of course
