As an altruistic act on behalf of CR Tammy owners, I simulated a strap failure to test the rig. It worked. Make sure that the safety strap is not too long as the lens goes from horizontal to vertical on severing the link to its tripod mount and being suspended from the camera. I also replaced the cord with a section of flat webbing salvaged from old equipment as it is easier to thread through the lugs and also the key ring when changing lenses or camera bodies. The choice of webbing was between a lanyard from an ancient 110 Minolta or a pair of Nikon binoculars. I decided that although the latter might appear to be amusing to some it could offend a malicious Japanese god.
