The tether attaches to the included split ring installed on your camera's strap lug with a swiveling snap-hook.

Included with your Belt System is a built-in accessory pouch capable of holding a small lens. The camera hub screws into the base of your camera's tripod socket with the supplied Allen Key. The back of the hub has a 1/4" threaded opening for mounting a tripod or quick-release plate without having to remove the hub from your camera. The hub's rubber washer is compressed during installation to help prevent unwanted loosening. Cotton Carrier recommends the use of a minute amount of LocTite as an added precaution. Always inspect your camera hub and receptacle for debris or wear that might negatively affect its performance.

question

I wanna buy this to attach my 70-200 2.8ii, and as we all know it has a tripod mount to it. My Question is, Can i hook the 70-200 to that little hook and be fine?
Asked by: Martin M.
You can easily mount a 70-200mm lens to the supplied mount and put it on the harness, but it tends to hit your leg when you walk and bounce around a lot. It is more designed for short lenses on the camera body. A back back is still the easiest way to carry long lenses when hiking.

question

It says that you should use a minute amount of LocTite, but does not say which type. Does anybody know?
Asked by: Andrew
I didn't use it. I check the connection after each use to be sure it doesn't vibrate lose. If you are going to use LocTite. use one that will allow you to remove the connection. You will need to read the labels on the LocTite.

question

Can you attach any other bags or lenses to the belt in addition to what is included?
Asked by: Kim H.
I havent tried but the belt is thick so it may be able to handle it. the pouch holds a decent sized lens as well. It may get a little bulky if you add more things to it. The one thing you may want to upgrade is the pad on the shoulder strap - its a little thin. I do recommend it though.
