Since 2009, ProMediaGear has designed and manufactured cutting-edge products, building a name based on quality and innovation.
We are excited about what the future holds for our latest offering, the Universal L-Cage Port Protector. The #BP2 is an innovative Port Protector as well as L-Cage Adapter. We designed multiple prototypes to get to where we are today. We knew that it wouldn't be easy to create something so simple yet so elegant and easy to use.
We all know how risky tethering a camera can be, the risk is too high not to take some precautions to protect the camera ports! Replacing a damaged HDMI port is very expensive. While there are other devices on the market, they are designed to only fit single style of camera and offer limited adjust-ability.
The Universal L-Cage Port Protector is compatible with all current DSLRs and Mirrorless cameras and will allow you to quickly protect your side ports and also attach a wide range of useful accessories including: External Monitors, Lights, Voice Recorders, Microphones, GPS Adapters etc. The L-Cage Port Protector features 9 UNC 1/4"-20 thread mounts to support your shooting style; so you can start protecting your equipment right away.
Port Protection While Tethering
Adjustable on two axes (fore-aft and side-side), the Universal Port Protector prevents cable snags, plug bumping, and other mishaps that can cause irreparable harm to your fragile camera equipment. There are 9 1/4”-20 port threads with anti-rotation holes too: just attach the #A10 (included) snag protector anywhere that feels right!
Compact Size Enables use with Gimbal Heads
Finally a Compact Bracket for all the Essential Accessories

Stretch Goal version
The current #BP2 version doesn't work with Tall Cameras like Nikon D5, or Canon 1Dx, (Canon 5d or Nikon D850 with battery pack) for those a riser piece is needed, see picture above. We've designed and prototypes some versions of it, but currently don't think that would be a major seller. If you can convince us otherwise we can make that too.

Risks and challenges
We’ve been in this business since 2009 and have pretty good experience in setting realistic and accurate expectations and always deliver. However, no matter how well we plan there is always a risk of something going wrong. Since we control manufacturing of the major part through our sister CNC Machining company the worst that can happen is that the delivery gets delayed a bit due to some unforeseen quality issues. Some components we source, but through the years we have build a web of reliable partners. If you want to help us out, the best thing if for you to spread good word about this project! Should we run into any issues that lead to shipping delays, we will be sure to keep everyone up to date. Our reputation, dating back nine years, is strong – and we are committed to customer satisfaction first and foremost!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
