Morgan,

If Jerry doesn't chime in, I would shoot him an email. I think he mentioned something about this at the last workshop. They all blur together. Hope all is well with you.

Aloha,
jay

Check page 65 (the second page in this PDF): http://www.steadicam...BackElement.pdf

That should give you an idea of how it's supposed to be aligned. That's from the Steadicam Ultra2 Manual. ( http://www.steadicam...traManuals.html )

Mark- just pull the pin and align the parts as shown in the photo.

The mating parts have two possible positions.

The "in" position works better with the mounting armature and socket block on the side as it is with "back-mounted" vests.

I should mention two things: that pulling the pin just the same operation as flipping to goofy foot and back, and this "in" and "out" is only a feature of the G-70 arm (aka "the kickback link.")
