  1. Hi Nick, I’m happy to hear that. If you need anything else, feel free to contact me at any time. All the best, Chris
  2. Hi Nick, Clearly this should not happen. Even if you did bump the vest, bits should not fall off it—sorry for that. If you send me your address, I’ll have some new screws shipped out to you. That joint with the circular plate is there so you can confirm the vest to the shape of your shoulder girdle. There’s an explanation of how to do that in the manual, and there’s a video on my website, link below. Once the vest is the right shape for your body, and the shoulder latch closes easily, all 8 screws holding the shoulder section should be tightened and sealed with Loctite 222. if you’ve any further questions, I’ll be happy to arrange a video call with you. Please contact me at chris@steadivision.com Here’s a link to the Exovest videos The one you’re looking for is Sizing the Exovest You’ll find other videos about working with the vest there too http://steadivision.com/info/tips/index.html All the best, Chris
  3. Hi Robert, Thanks for your interest in the Exovest. There are a few videos here explaining what the Exovest is and how it works. I hope they answer your questions. If not, let me know, and I’ll try to help further http://steadivision.com/info/tips/index.html All the best, Chris
  4. Hey Cedric, Thanks for pointing this out. I’m going to have a good think about it. If I come up with anything, I’ll let you know. I look forward to hearing if you have zany ideas or suggestions. All the best, Chris
  5. Hi Cedric, You're right, the vest looks well-fitted to me. As you point out, when the load is on, the chest plate should stay well away from your throat. As for the the little screw at the back, you could try filing it down until it's flat. I did have a fall in the vest, down some icy stairs when not wearing the rig, and though I hurt my knee, the vest saved me from hitting my spine on the step. I do take your point, however. In some circumstances it could be that the vest may cause you to get hurt. I honestly don't know what to do about that. All the best, Chris
  6. You can make your own easily enough. There’s a video here on this tips & tricks page: http://steadivision.com/info/tips/ Chris
  7. Hi Cedric, Please insert a(nother) booster pad at the shoulders if any part of the rod assembly touches your back. Also, try to not shorten the rear rods as much, but instead pull the front rods down away from your throat. The chest plate should be on your chest. It sounds like it’s too high. We can do a video fitting if you like. All the best, Chris
  8. Great! Let me know how it goes.
  9. Hey Patrick, Be sure to try it before you buy it! I hope it will work for you, but it’s best to be sure. Let me know if you don’t get your screws. I can try someone else. All the best, Chris
  10. Hi Patrick, Take a picture of the missing screws, and send it to Marcus Johnson: mjohnson@tiffen.com He should be able to help. All the best, Chris
  11. You can make and add your own cross-back straps very easily. Here’s a link to a video: http://steadivision.com/tips.html All the best, Chris
