The Rubber Locking Plug comes with all GoPro Cameras and the GoPro Grab Bag of Mounts. The camera tether comes with the SurfBoard Mount, the Floaty Backdoor, the Grab Bag of Mounts, and the Camera Tethers package.

The Rubber Locking Plug is compatible with the GoPro Quick Release Buckle and helps reduce vibration when shooting video in high vibration environments. Attach the circular ring to the thumb screw then press the U shape into the negative space left when the quick release buckle has been locked into the mount.

The Camera Tether is used to secure your camera in case a mount breaks. You can attach the tether string to something secure on your surface or to one of the GoPro camera tether bases. Just make sure you properly apply the 3M adhesive to the surface. To properly apply the 3M adhesive clean the surface, apply the adhesive by removing the protective film and firmly pressing the base into place, then let the adhesive sit for up to 72 hours to ensure it’s secure.
