    Hi,
    Here is my new listings for a Gimbal Lock and lens cap combos. I designed and 3d printed all the parts myself. They have been updated.
    Here is the links to my eBay listings that have the NEW Gimbal Lock. It will work with my lens caps. So you can just order the NEW gimbal lock if you already have lens caps from me.
    Thanks,
    Nathan

    Great price. The only issue I see is that the material appears to flex. As such, would the camera still be susceptible to movement upon impact?

    I read a review from someone else on a lock with the same design. Appears that there the length of the protector is short enough that there is really little play. Not enough to allow the camera to move.

    Shame I already bought another type as I like this one and it's less cost. I waited and wait but no one else was making these. I buy one and all of a sudden there are several on the market.

    BTW, 3rd party gimbal locks are a must have item. Once you use one, you will wish you had bought one a long time prior.

    The Gimbal Lock itself has very little flex in it. Enough to help get it on and off. Once it's on with the lens cap it's not going anywhere. It's a much better design that what shipped with the P3. It uses the lens cap to give you a tight non-moving fit.

    Yes. I ship free to the US and eBay does the international shipping.
    Let me know if you have any problems purchasing the combo.
    Thanks,

    Nice - shame about the $19 shipping for a small, lightweight piece of plastic..

    I think they are matching my first class US sipping with tracking information. That could be why the high cost?

    Yeah it is a little steep for me in shipping too - any other options Nathan for a fellow PP ? :)
