Need chest mount strap for HERO 7 Black guaranteed to fit level

I recently purchased an XIT Group Chest Mount Strap for GoPro XTGPCS for my GoPro HERO7 Black. It does not seem to function properly as a body cam because the camera will not tilt up the full 90 degrees. Rather, the best it will do is point down at about 20 degrees. Do I need to purchase additional mounting hardware?

You should mount the camera upside down and use a J-hook mount, extension arms or the Swivel Mount. The Grab Bag will give you what you need https://shop.gopro.com/mounts/grab-bag/AGBAG-002.html

BTW, personally I'd return the Chest Mount that you purchased and get the new Chest Mount by GoPro. With GoPro Plus it's half off ($19.99), works much better than the old model, and comes with the correct mounting buckle.
