Lock and load. Lock and load. The new ConnectR-2 (CR-2) is the smartest upgrade you can make to your early generation R-Strap. Designed and built exclusively for BlackRapid’s R-Straps, the CR-2 is made from high strength steel and coated in black nickel. It’s stronger, swivels smoother, and has a positive lock to ensure the safety of your camera (and peace of mind). Retrofit your R-Strap with this beauty and your days are bound to only get better.
