Does anyone have a picture of where you attack the little quick disconnect strap at, I know it goes from the remote to the handle, but I'm not sure exactly how you attack it.

I can't find any info in the manual about it

there was a youtube video on this maybe try searching on you tube don't remember who did it though I think you have to remove the stem put the loop of the strap on the stem and replace back on the shaft hope this helps

I drilled a hole in the fitting at the top of the shaft at a 45 degree angle to attach mine so I don't have
to deal with putting it over the shaft every time.

I did a similar thing, but I tied a piece of Paracord around the shaft and ran that through the lanyard that XP provides. I liked the idea of a neat hole in the mount, but I lacked confidence in my ability to make it look as good as the one posted above. Foiled, you do good work! Your plugs must be the stuff that dreams are made of! 👍👍👍

Here is what I did. I took the two screws out, pulled the "mount" out. I then put one end of the looped cord where that screw goes in, and re-insterted the mount, the screw kept the cord from pulling out.

On the other end, I had to use a needle to fish the cord through the remote.

Thanks for the ideas!

I replaced the string on one end of the quick connector with thin elastic cord and tied it around the shaft end and the other side is sewn to the remote cover -not the remote itself.

😅...I am very experinced at knocking mine off in every conceivable manner. Guess I better get with it and tie one on and get a spare cover....😅.

One time my ORX fell off putting it in the front seat. Good thing I noticed. After seaching all over I found it laying behind the truck front tire waiting for me to back up.😬.
These things must have a death wish?

Sort of related… I seem to have trouble getting the remote to snap on firmly, more so than with my Deus 1. You have to line it up just right or it won’t attach correct and could easily fall off.

If we lose the remote within the warranty period, will they replace it?

That was easy! I've never had a problem with mine popping off.

Well, my original set up did not last long, the string that came with it broke. Partially because it's so short, I ended up pulling on it a lot.

So, now I'm using para-cord on the one end, inserting it into the shaft (looping it) after taking the plastic insert / holder for the remote out. I then re-inserted the remote mount.

The longer cord is much more convenient than the one that came with it!

I don’t recall there ever being this much discussion about this with the Deus 1. I had it for 5 years and never had a problem. So far no issues with the Deus 2 either. It seems to stay put fine.

I was thinking about drilling a small hole through the head of the shaft, at one corner like I've seen, and then slightly countersink it a little so the line doesn't wear as bad. That seems better than having it slip up and down on the shaft, plus it prevents the shaft from seating completely if fully extended. Not a big deal, but a small hole would get it out of the way.
