I shortened the link from Frank

I have the PD hand cuff, found it problematic for me and what you say also. It 
sits in my drawer.

I liked the spiderPro hand strap except for the way it attaches to the bottom 
of the camera.
It is always binding up with the PD capture clip, especially after bending it 
while changing batteries.
What I did like was the spacer that attached to the upper camera lug.
So I ordered some of these:
and can use them with the PD Hand Strap (Clutch),
to give more wiggle room for the camera controls.
