Spider Holster Cross-Platform Compatibility
While the Spider HarnessBelt continues to be a popular option for photographers to comfortably strap on their SpiderPro, many shooters have also invested in popular harness and belt systems such as the Think Tank Photo Speed Belts and Steroid Belts to provide arm’s length storage while on location. To enable these users to bring the unique capabilities of the Spider Holster to their existing system, two new adaptors, each specifically designed for the different dimensions of these popular belts, were created. Available direct from Spider Holster the Speed Belt adaptor sells for $19.99 and the Steroid Belt adaptor is $12.99.
Another widely used harness system is Lowepro’s Street and Field system. For current Spider Holster owners, the company developed a simple do-it-yourself modification that will attach the SpiderPro to Lowepro harness and belt systems. Brief instructional videos demonstrating the necessary modification, and walking through the set-up process for the Think Tank adaptors, are available on the company website.
While the SpiderPlate enables standard tripod and ballhead owners to use the quick-release attachments from their tripod makers, the growing use of the double-dovetailed quick-release plates, commonly referred to as Arca-Swiss-style, has been the catalyst for a new partnership between Spider Holster and accessory-maker Acratech. Known for its high-quality designs, Acratech designed and manufactured a quick release plate that easily attaches the SpiderPlate to the increasingly popular ballhead and tripod styles. The Arca-Swiss-style quick-release plate can be purchased from Spider Holster or Acratech for $39.95.
The complete Spider Holster System carries an MSRP of $109.99, though retail pricing may vary in some markets. To find a local retail outlet or purchase direct, please visit the Spider Holster website at: http://www.spiderholster.com.
