Product Highlights
  • Secure Your Camera from Street Theft
  • 1.5mm Gauge Steel Security Cable
  • 16oz. Rugged Thermoset Polymer Fabric
  • Quality from BlackRapid

The ProtectR Security Sleeve - Long from BlackRapid is a simple way to have some peace of mind when shooting in less than hospitable terrain. The ProtectR features a 1.5mm steel cable inside a 16oz. thermoset polymer fabric sleeve which wraps around any BlackRapid camera strap to provide an extra degree of security when shooting in situations that demand this level of caution. The steel cables will prevent the cutting or slicing of your camera strap while you are focusing on getting that important shot. In addition to their strength, the white-coated cables can be seen through their sleeve to deter anyone even thinking about a quick score.

The ProtectR comes in two sizes for a perfect fit. ProtectR - Regular is 17" (43.2 cm) and the ProtectR - Long is 21.5" (54.6 cm), for those who wear their straps extended a bit longer. Both ProtectR Security Sleeves are 2" wide and quality made by BlackRapid. When getting the best shot is all you should be focusing on, it's good to know that someone's got your back. 

Strong 1.5mm gauge steel cable wraps twice through the security sleeve.
Security sleeve made of 16oz rugged, thermoset polymer fabric (TPF) with two small cut-aways that make the steel cables visible to potential thieves.
Length 21.5" (54.6 cm)
Width 2" (5.1 cm)

        Comments about BlackRapid ProtectR Security Sleeve - Long:

        I have mine installed on a Black Rapid Sport Strap with the strap extended to it's full length. The long model of the ProtectR if installed properly covers the entire back of the strap (descending portion from the shoulder)to a point directly beneath your under arm. With your arm at your side it would not be possible for someone to find an unprotected portion of the strap to cut without lifting your arm. The thief would also have to be bent over from the waist. It could be argued that any system can be beaten but this one would be difficult.

        Comments about BlackRapid ProtectR Security Sleeve - Long:

        I use the BlackRapid RS-5 with the underarm BRAD. To make this Security Sleeve work, I had to modify it to accept the BRAD by cutting a notch in the security sleeve's cover. Also, the instructions for the sleeve state that the sleeve should connect to the clip on the RS-5 but the RS-5 does not have a clip! I just placed it over the strap and with needle and thread tacked the top of the sleeve to the shoulder pad . Caution, I got the longer sleeve (I have a long torso) but most people will only need the standard sleeve. Check the length carefully before you buy.
