        There's not really a lot to review with this little guy. It's primary purpose is to cover the mechanism on the RS7 strap that unhooks it. To that end, it works great. Velcro closure and intuitive design. Easy to install. If you have the RS7 and want the extra peace of mind that nobody will be able to come behind you and unhook your strap, then get this. It's not a mandatory accessory by any means, though.

        A little confusing at first.

          Comments about BlackRapid BUCK-1 Buckle Cover for All R Series Straps:

          Once I got the hang of routing the strap, the second one was a piece of cake to install. While I'm not terribly worried about being robbed, it gives some peace of mind to know the buckles are much more difficult to unlatch.

              this is a neccessary item for the curve strap if you dont want to run the risk of someone opening your strap on your back and possibly stealing your camera but it should come standard with the strap.

                      Comments about BlackRapid BUCK-1 Buckle Cover for All R Series Straps:

                      The quick release buckle of my Black Rapid RS7 camera strap could be a nice feature if it is something I'd use, but I don't. However, I have to admit to a very small level of concern with the security having the buckle in the back. In a crowd anyone could release the buckle and snatch your gear before you knew what happened.
                      This is where the BUCK-1 Buckle Cover comes into play. It is designed in such a way that there is an internal strap that threads through the internal spaces of the buckle that physically block the buckle and prevent it opening. And you would never know it because all you see is the outer part that wraps around the buckle. This is a well thought out design and it is very "stealth" in use. It is not a permanent modification so that it may be easily removed at anytime and the option of using the camera strap quick release is still available to you.

                        I was slightly disappointed after getting the RS-7 to see how the quick release buckle on the back made it so easy for a would-be camera thief. This fixes that issue. Should be a must have accessory with the RS-7 strap.

                        Was hard to install but would be hard for a thief to uninstall too.

                                  I ordered the blackrapid rs-5 and after reading the description and reviews on this , I figured it sounded like a good idea . It said it works on all slings but not the one I got . Luckily it was only [$] and i know quite a few people with other blackrapid products so its not a complete waste .

                                                The BlackRapid straps are great but I didn't like the buckle being on my back. I could see some knucklehead releasing the strap and my camara falling to the ground or worse. This item is more than just a cover. There is a smaller little velcro bit inside that goes inbetween the two buckle halfs. This piece locks the two halfs together so even if the release was squeezed they wouldn't come apart. Then the outside part velcros around the entire buckle making it almost dissapear. Just makes me feel more secure when shooting in an environment I cannot control.

                                                    Though I like the advantages of the quick connectors, I do not like the ease in which they can become disengaged. The BUCK-1 protects, and secures that aspect while still making access for future adjustments possible. Nice Job.

                                                            This thing is all about risk management. The buckle cover works exactly as intended and is worth every penny considering what it is preventing(your precious camera and lens from taking an awful spill either by accidental or purposeful unclipping). When installed correctly, it pretty much renders the buckle on the back of your strap completely unfuntional and makes the strap seemingly one piece. You can not feel the cover on the buckle when wearing the strap and does not sacrifice comfort or usefulness of the strap in any way.

The cover can prevent an accidental buckle disconnect, as well. Would like to see the manufacturer make a thinner version and use photos, in place of drawings, as these are the only installation instructions. Reccomend installing the cover from the back of the strap; this puts the bulky side of the cover to the outside of the strap.
