So, I ditched the straps last year and started using those small bungee cords instead. I'd wrap those bungees tightly around the camera to whatever I was securing it to. Of course, any time I wanted to access my SD card, I'd have to take the bungee cords off the camera and the tree limb or post it was attached to. We all know that can be a pain - and you need to reset the camera up every time you remove it from its post, to make sure you are getting the perfect pictures in the frame you want. Not fun. Not quick. I was getting sick of the bungees and just wanted to be able to quickly access my camera, without having to mess with any straps or bungee cords, etc. There had to be an easier way!
Well, I hit the jackpot when I found out about the T-mate. The Tmate slips over a t-post and secures itself to the post by a locking pin. It is a very smart design, and keeps you camera from being knocked around by animals, and you can access your SD cards in seconds! No more dealing with inferior straps that weather away, or bungee cords that will lose elasticity and fail in time. Now, I can get grab my SD card and replace it with a new one in seconds! And once I set the camera up for the perfect picture, I know the T-mate won't move, and my pictures will be consistent every time!
