Hello everyone! Just wanna give back to this great forum of which I've been lurking for several months now, but only joined a few days ago, and share a nice accessory I saw online a couple of weeks ago, decided to order a few days ago, and received today.
I've been a "SpiderPro Dual Camera System" user for several months now. It's a great back-saver. I've also been a "BlackRapid RS-2 Sport 2 Camera Strap" user for a couple of years now. It's an easy way to transport and a quick way to shoot with your DSLR. To me those two accessories are indispensable for comfort and efficiency.
If you're like me and have been looking for a solution to use a SpiderPro System with an arca-swiss L-bracket or plate, here is a necessary accessory to pick up. Does it have the same quality as Kirk and RRS arca-swiss products? I'd say it's pretty close. Would I have total confidence that this can hold up the weight of my camera, zoom lens (and perhaps a flash) combo? Only time will tell. IMHO and limited experience, so far, so good. Will update this post as I get more field-time with it.

If you want to use a BlackRapid strap with the above accessory, SpiderPro has an adapter http://www.spiderholster.com/arca-swiss-adapter.html
so you can use, say a Kirk QRC-1 or a RRS B2-FAB-F, and not have to unscrew the SpiderPro clamp.
I am not, in any way, related to SpiderPro. I'm just a customer sharing a good find to everyone here.
Mods, if this is in the wrong forum, I apologize and please feel free to move it to the pertinent forum. Thanks.
