Re: Blackrapid strap almost killed $9000 worth of gear

Mine broke in the exact same way that yours did a few months ago.  In my case it happened when I was tightining the CR2 into the tripod mount.  Something "slipped" when I was putting it on but I didn't think anything of it until I managed to almost bounce the camera loose a few minutes later.

The mfg was good and shipped me a replacement.  Since then I've decided to not use the clip to tighten the screw.  It's a little less convenient but have a small screw driver (using it for leverage, not as a screw driver) that I use to snug it up.
