I'm sure I'm missing something, but:

" For owners who opt in, we are pledging to cover the costs if a renter disappears with the gear and refuses to return it. For the renter, there’s no additional cost."

1) Why would an owner not "opt-in" to be covered in case someone takes his camera? Is it because it costs extra?

2) I guess when they say for the renter there's no additional cost, it means that it costs more for the owner if he "opts in."

Still rather poor. This should be automatic, and built in.

I agree, if there's not enough of a profit incentive to rent out your gear after you've paid the fees and extra on top of that for their insurance/guarantee/whatever then it seems like the whole model this is built on is doomed to fail...
