Exovest 'lowering bracket'

Recommended Posts

Love my Exovest. But I feel that the socket blocked is just sitting a little bit too high for my taste.
Aka the default position of the socket block / arm / sled is about 3" higher that I would like it too have.

Has anybody come up with a 'socket block lowering bracket' for the Exovest ?

Basically the Exovest equivalent of the IBaird Pro Vest bracket.

thanks. will try.


(maybe I should read a manual once in a while :-)



Have you lowered the socket block to be as low as it can be - on the same level of the waistband? (see the bottom of page 7 of the manual here: http://www.tiffen.com/userimages2/Steadicam/LIT-815780.pdf ) If not, that seems like an easy solution.

Hi Axel,


I typically fly with my socket block mounted in the "bridge plate jumping over the lower pivot" configuration on my Exovest. I find it puts the weight of the rig right over my own center of gravity, and feels most natural. It's a quick change, and can be done with the vest still on your body.


Happy flying!
