I bought a camera case elsewhere and within a short period of time the spring action of the catch had gone. The karabiners that I bought were to replace the original now faulty and unreliable one. I have also gone for a change, but suitably matching colour. I have found a way of repairing the catch, which I secure to one of my trouser belt holders. It means that I can take my camera from its pouch attached to my waist in an instant and hopefully accumulate some exciting images during my travels.
