Product Highlights
  • Provides Extra Drop Protection

  • Tether Also Mounts to CR2/FR3 Connectors

This is the Tether Kit for BlackRapid Camera System. It provides additional security for your camera while it's hanging by your waist. The triangular connector on the safety tether threads to one of your camera's strap lugs. The other end of the safety tether connects to the BlackRapid CR-2 swivel hook that is already mounted to the FR-3 mounted into the tripod socket of your camera. For shooting convenience, it is recommended that you attach the tether to the opposite lug of your camera's grip. The black and gold carabiners which are provided in the kit can be connected to your belt and then attached to the strap. Both components provide added security while you're on the go.

The advantage of supplying two tethers is that one camera can be around your neck while the other is waiting in your gear bag for rapid attachment to your BlackRapid strap. The Tether Kit includes two small adjustable safety tethers, and two carabiners; one black, one gold. There is also a mesh storage pouch for all the components that also be used to hold a cell phone or similar sized item.

        nice addition to the BlackRapid strap. High quality. Well made and nicely packaged - the small bag is very handy. Wish the attachable clips were smaller. Was debating on buying due to price but glad I did.

        Extra security

              The extra security is nice. However, I found it difficult to put on the camera and it scratched the camera strap mount. Also, overpriced. Should have made my own.

                  I got this kit after dropping my camera body in the snow. I got so used to my strap being attached to the tripod socket, when I got a tripod mount for my lens and attached the strap to it, I dropped the camera. No damage, just a lot of anxiety about it. Never again. The tether is attached to the factory strap mount on the camera and to the BlackRapid clip. Simple yet effective.

                  They work, but they're far from perfect.

                    The tether straps function as described, however the metallic tension clip that connects to the camera lug is difficult to maneuver and can scratch the paint on the lug or nearby camera surface. I'm sure there can be a better design or material used. For Canon camera bodies, just a pull-though design without any clip would be much, much better.

                          This is a great addition to my BlackRapid RS-Sport Extreme, call me crazy but I'm always a little bit afraid of the camera getting loose and falling to the ground especially while I'm running around with big heavy lenses on it so this little fella just adds a little more peace of mind and security to it !
