Tether Tools and BlackRapid Team Up To Create A Shoulder Strap for your iPad


Tether Tools is a company creating photography accessories for mainly in-studio and on-location shoots–as well as solutions for tethering. BlackRapid creates camera straps that have become an essential companion for some hardcore photographers because of their strap’s utility and functionality. When you put these two companies together, you get the TabStrap for the Wallee System which includes a shoulder strap, connector, and bracket to work with your iPad or Galaxy Tab 10.1 (case is sold separately).

This accessory uses the BlackRapid Metro strap and the Hitch D-Ring with Tether Tool’s Wallee tablet connectors to give users an extra hand on a shoot. The tablet hangs along the side of your body, similar to any shoulder-strap bag and from the looks of it, would not be ideal for hardcore traveling. It is geared towards photographers who constantly refer their iPad or other tablet during a shoot and can’t afford to pay an intern to hold gear for them.

The entire TabStrap setup will cost $89.90 while for users who already own Tether Tool’s tablet connection kit, they can separately purchase the BlackRapid accessories for $39.95. All of this can be found and purchased through Tether Tool’s website.
