My Must Have Underwater Housing Accessory // Cable Top Handle Grip [VIDEO]

By Jean Rydberg

Find out why I never go to the dive site without a cable top grip attached to my housing, and why if you're shooting strobes you will want to be able to attach it to the extension of your strobe arm rather than the top of the housing's handle.

When the cable grip is attached to the strobe arm, it can easily slide up and down allowing you to shoulder carry your rig without limiting your strobe positioning options.

A stainless steel cable with comfortable rubber overlay is the perfect lightweight addition to carry your system to and from the dive site or pool.

Jean Rydberg IkeliteJean Rydberg, daughter of Ike Brigham, became President & CEO of Ikelite in 2006. Prior to that, she wisely pursued a degree in Astronomy & Astrophysics to prepare herself for the challenges of running a technology-driven manufacturing business with global distribution. Jean fully embraces the need to travel outside of her hometown of Indianapolis to experience good diving. She believes that any camera is capable of amazing results in the right hands, and anyone can become a great photographer given the right advice. When she's not working she's spending time with her husband, cats, and two daughters (though not necessarily in that order).
