The Side-Saddle provides more rigid support for these instruments while actually reducing the size and weight of the Hitch Hiker. A lever-operated ARCA-Swiss style quick-plate clamp is an integral part of the Side-Saddle.

Locking Pin

The retractable Locking Pin can be used with either the quick-plate clamp on the standard Payload Platform or the quick-plate clamp on the Side-Saddle to prevent accidental opening of the clamp. It is mostly intended as fail-safe device for those carrying a valuable instrument on the Hitch Hiker over the shoulder while hiking -- preventing such accidents as the clamping lever getting snagged on a loop on a pack or a similar situation. The clamp itself is quite secure -- and will not come open unless accidentally tugged.
