Camera Holster Helps Prove the Size of Your Catch

Never fumble for your camera again with the new Gear Keeper® Retractable Camera Holster, designed to keep your camera safe and protected but also conveniently available.

With pockets already full of everything from pliers to clippers, the new Gear Keeper Retractable Camera Holster lets the angler keep the point-and-shoot handy, without worrying it might fall into the river. Simply grab, point, shoot and let go and the camera can be left safely dangling, or easily retracted back into its secured holster. 

“You want to be focused on what the fish are interested in, not where your camera is,” says John Salentine, vice president and co-founder of Hammerhead Industries, which manufactures Gear Keeper systems. “The Gear Keeper Retractable Camera Holster, like all of our products is a ‘peace-of-mind’ accessory — you don’t have to even think
about it, because you know it’ll be there to perform when you need it.”

The Gear Keeper Retractable Camera Holster connects via a Velcro strap mount, which connects to any, loop, bar, belt or strap. With a retractor force of six ounces – enough to hold most small cameras – the holster has a 60-pound breaking strength. The cable which is constructed from nylon coated stainless steel extends up to 36 inches so there is no need to unhook it when taking a photo.

The original Geer Keeper system was engineered specifically for SCUBA diving, to secure items in situations when hands are otherwise occupied. Gear Keeper systems are now available in more than 3,000 configuration options and used in applications from hiking, fishing and hunting to law enforcement, the military and trucking.
