Yeah, I can see that. Without the base plate, it would just roll over, and likely tear the tapered head screw through the strap. Needs both the baseplate, and the backer to stay stable and not tear what it is mounted to.

the only real difference between a good tracker and a bad tracker, is observation. all the same data is present for both. The rest, is understanding what you're seeing.

Cinch,
Forward me the buying info if you can. One of these would be handy as heck while humping it out to those long coyote stands way off the road.

Great idea Ted, nice to see that you're willing to share your ideas with us. Keep up the good work and [bleep] them naysayers man. You didn't ask them their opinions or push the product on anyone. Guys that actually get out there and hunt can see the usefulness of this idea.

Good news........

They are less expensive these days

I am currently making these on a CNC lathe and was able to decrease my cost by 20%

The bead blasted bare aluminum studs are now $40 shipped to any USA state.

Powder coated ones are $45 each and will be offered in tan and olive as there is not enough interest in black

I also accept PayPal plus the fee.......$1.50

Very cool. It's nice to see a campfire venture succeed.

Finally installed mine, last weekend, and this weekend took it off to do the locktite. I did some hiking around with it and I am sold on this! With some adjustments to my sling and how my rifle rests on my pack, with the slingamarig added it pretty much locks my rifle into place. very easy to traverse over rough terrain and do it all hands free without worrying about my rifle. If anyone is on the fence, order it, you won't be disappointed. I'll be ordering some more soon for family and my other pack.

Thanks for the review Brent

Yes.....it is a simple, lightweight devise......but this is by design

After 2 years of making tweeks I think we hit it just about right.

The button is just big enough to to do it's job but small enough to stay out of the way.

The undercut allows more than enough bite to work with even thick, wide slings.

A misconception is that the washer will hurt you during use.

To clear this up....the rear washer sinks into the padding of the pack straps so deeply it is never noticed even with a heavy load.

Exactly.


Spent primers are the supreme tutorial.

So, where is the EXACT spot for mounting if you're gonna poke a hole in your $200 + backpack?

Ted-, it's an imaginative idea and I always admire skills such as yours. It fits a definite need.

Years ago, Browning made a high end coat that had a "pebbled-textured" rubber patch on the shoulder top to provide texture and friction to hold the sling in place. I don't know if they still do.

It worked better than the slick, synthetic material for holding your sling in place which it didn't and you didn't have to be wearing a pack -- there's another idea. 😉
