    Guys,
    I am looking for a solid gimbal transporter lock that slides over the gopro and stops the gimbal from moving.
    I have tried the one in this picture twice and they are rubbish. They get loose and dont hold onto the gimbal housing after a few uses.

    At $16.00 a pop its time for a good long term investment setup, does anyone have any pics or links to images so I can find out where to get one from (prefer someone in Australia)
    Here is a picture of the crap I have been using....[​IMG]

    This is the one I am looking for....

    I use a rubber band. Always intrigued by the price people are willing to pay for a piece of plastic.

    Fyod, You can keep your rubber bands mate. Not going to destroy another 500 dollar gimbal because of a rubber band.
    If I had a decent transport locker in the first place I would have saved myself 500 bucks.
    Thanks guys for your feedback.
    I will check them out.

    cokeaddict people seem on the fence about a gimbal lock. I think its a good idea but I have never heard of damage occurring to a gimbal. What happened exactly?
