karma grip extension on seeker backpack shoulder mount is not stable!

Hello all, I need help with attaching the karma grip EXTENSION onto my seeker backpack shoulder mount.

 

Previously, I was always able to successfully use the karma grip without the extension on the shoulder mount, because the grip is long and can be held in place with the bottom elastic band (see picture). However, after using the extension, the camera is very shaky when only attached to the shoulder mount. The gimbal is too short and can no longer be held in place by the bottom elastic band for support. I am better off not using the extension. Anyone else have this problem? Thanks.

Re: karma grip extension on seeker backpack shoulder mount is not stable!

It will work better if you use a J-Hook mount and angle the stabilizer more horizontally out. Use the included velcro hook straps to secure the cable directly under the extension to your backpack strap. Having the stabilizer mounted vertically limits the stabilization you can get.
