A thought....

Camera tripod plate are designed to be used ON A TRIPOD. This kind of strap design will harm the body because the tripod sockect is not made to sustain the weight. Even If they were free I would NEVER use them.

Damage to the base plate or body chassis are not covered by warranty or worst cant be fixed if chassis is bent.
