I agree that straps are a pain in the you know what?  I disconnect my op/tech strap when I am shooting from a tripod.  I make darn sure that the lens mount is firmly in place on my gimbal head and locked down tight before I move my hand?  I don't even like straps carrying any camera with a short lens attached.  They are always in the way and can get hooked onto something and taken out of my hand ugh!!!!  I am always thinking what if my Nikon and 500mm lens falls off the tripod head when I am carrying them on my tripod.  I am always checking the connection for tightness.

Good luck on your damage repair or insurance claim.  A persons worst nightmare.
