Another important feature is the ability to provide some camera protection while walking to or from a hunting blind or tree stand. When a camera is in a permanently fixed position on the side of the bow it can be easily scratched or damaged as you walk through the woods to your hunting location.
It's equally awkward to have the camera protruding from the bow as your try to quietly stalk an animal. By using the swing arms locking mechanism, you can store the camera in the forward posit ion aligning it in the natural shape of the bow. For example, if you mount the camera above the stabilizer you can position the camera to be directly over the stabilizer and aligned in the same direction. This makes for a more natural fit and helps protect the camera when walking. When it is time to use the camera, it can easily and quietly be pulled back into the desired recording position.
