CustomSLR's C-Loop is an alterative camera strap attachment solution to the traditional top mounted camera strap loops that are located on each top side of DSLRs and mirrorless cameras. Instead, the C-Loop attaches to the bottom of the camera in the tripod mount that is found on virtually every camera.

The C-loop is a very very bad idea. Too much load is concentrated on the very small tripod screw. A camera with a 300 mm f2.8 lens has plenty of weight. And the dynamic load on the thin tripod screw can be 2.5 to 3 times the static camera + lens load. I have seen the entire tripod mount wrenched out together with the bottom plate.
The Pro Photographer has nothing to loose as he sells his gear every 2-years to buy the latest new camera.
I am a Manufacturing Engineer with (40) years of expertise behind me and retired only recently as an Advisor from the world's largest conglomerate. I am also a camera enthusiast.
I am willing to show how a C-loop on a Pro DSLR Body with a medium tele lens can damage the tripod mount under dynamic load conditions.
