The BosTail comes with a slip lock and a nickel plated, metal ring which is permanently attached to the BosTail.  The BosTail can be adjusted from 2″ to 4″ to accommodate different camera body heights and carrying configurations.  BosTails are rated to hold over 60 pounds.  A BosTail attaches to one camera strap lug or eyelet and split ring on the camera body (left side lug recommended).  A BosTail never needs to be removed from the camera body. Each camera body should have its own BosTail.
