Staff Tip: Double-checking your C-Loop
The C-Loop is a great tool for photographers, but there are some things we wanted to share to help make your experience even better.
- Check and tighten your C-Loop before EVERY shoot, as this will ensure that the C-Loop is tightly fastened. The C-Loop is designed to securely attach to your camera & M-Plate Pro, however it can still become loose after use. This will help prevent any headaches and dropped cameras due to the C-Loop becoming loose. If your C-Loop has issues staying tight or rotating properly, stop using immediately and contact support.
- To many photographers, the C-Loop is an everyday tool. Losing your washer or having it wear out is something that can happen over time. If you find yourself in this situation, don’t worry! We have replacement C-Loop washers available here.
- The C-Loop and the C-Loop HD can become squeaky over time. This is easily fixed with a touch of lubricant. The C-Loop tends to need a bit of oil every few months, more so if it is used vigorously.
Flip up the handle and put a drop of your favorite lubricant (Tri-Flow, WD-40, etc) in the gap between the top portion and the body (see picture). Since the tolerance is so tight, give it several rotations to make sure the lubricant has penetrated most of the surface under the gap. To wipe off the excess lubricant, press a napkin/tissue against the top of the body. Repeat until the top of the body is free of lubricant.
We hope these performance tips will help enhance your C-Loop experience. If you have any concerns or questions about our products, please feel free to contact us.
