BlackRapids Strap Modification
Jun 5, 2009

I have owned a Blackrapid strap for 5 months.

I LOVE the strap but made one change to it.

I used it a lot at sporting events. The constant sliding of the camera moved the shoulder strap down the front of my chest. I had to keep sliding it back up into position.

I had a shoe repair guy put two strips of suede leather on the portion of the strap that makes contact with my shoulder. I left a gap at the spot where it bends over my shoulder---to have a natural marker spot so I do not need to look when moving the strap back into position.

The leather works GREAT----rarely moves out of place now. It cost me $8.
