      Comments about Gepe Cloth Covered Cable Release w/Disc-Lock 20":

      Arrived quickly, works exactly as expected! A little finicky screwing the threads into a Modern Copal shutter, but this may be a function of the screw tip being parallel to the lens board and broadening to fit a variety of shutter threads. This is my first cable release, so I can't comment on whether this is an issue with other cable releases. Even with that (very) minor issue, I am incredibly satisfied.

      Awesome device. I do wish there's an easier way to unlock the button. All in all I love it.

      Sleek release cable with a precaution

        Comments about Gepe Cloth Covered Cable Release w/Disc-Lock 20":

        This is a sleek set of mechanical shutter release cable with cloth cover. It is well made, but the finger grip is a bit too small. When you press the metal disc with a thumb, you must squeeze the other two fingers very hard to prevent the grip from slipping through. If you sweat in the field after a long hard hike, wipe out your hands clean and dry before touching this cable release. For those with big fingers, find something else.

              Comments about Gepe Cloth Covered Cable Release w/Disc-Lock 20":

              I use it to take pictures without shaking the camera. It's ideal for me because it is long enough to stand away from the camera, and the slack probably helps avoid movement. The lock can be used or not, it's really cool. Nothing bad about it; in fact someone put a table on top of it and it's fine.

                Much more flexible than the plastic covered releases, especially when it's cold. Disc lock is very easy to use.
