Re: SunSniper Ball bearing mount screw solves problem. Available from B&H

I have the Sunsniper ball bearing mount.  How did you install it?  Did you have to cut the stitching on the BR strap so you could insert the Sunsniper on the strap?  I heard that is the only way as the plastic rectangle part prevents loosening of the loop if you want to remove the CR-1.

First thing I did was get a SunSniper ball bearing mount. Used it for 2 years... NO problems.  Ball bearings keep the screw from torquing loose.

Fits perfectly on the BR straps.  Available as a separate from B&H
