So I've had several near disasters with the Toad in the Hole system. I'd like to share the safety tips I've learned in hopes you don't actually drop the gimbal while thinking it's secure. 1. When fastening the handle bars into the gimbal portion of the MoVI via the toad in the hole, hold the gimbal with one hand and while holding the handle bars with your other hand, push the handle bars down into the MoVI. Don't try to lift the gimbal into the handle bars. If the gimbal is too heavy for you to hold, have some hold it while you lower the handle bars into the gimbal.* 2. Make sure you here a loud click or double click. This means both the "pins" (I'm not sure if this is the correct terminology) have engaged and are supporting the weight of the MoVI. It's possible for only one pin to engage, which will support the gimbals weight but will fail to support the gimbal during heavy side-side movement or rattling. 3. Confirm the Toad in the Hole has engaged. With one hand under the pan arm (to catch the gimbal in case it drops) and before closing the safety latch on the Toad in the Hole, violently jiggle the MoVI up and down AND side to side. The side to side jiggling is where I've seen the gimbal fall. I believe when only 1 pin engages, it allows the Toad (male piece) to slowly push back the 1 registered pin until the system fails and the gimbal drops. *when working with a jib or other similar set up, unfortunately, you won't be able to lower the Toad into the Hole so you just need to try and put the Toad as vertically as possible into the Hole. However, step 3 should confirm whether the Toad has securely engaged into the Hole. 4. This step is probably overkill, but once I've confirmed the Toad has securely clicked into the Hole and I've closed the safety latch, I use a thin piece of gaff tape to tape the latch shut. This is my safety so no one accidentally releases the safety. If I were to help develop a Toad in the Hole 2.0, it would be more like an upside down hot/cold shoe. This way if something fails, you have the metal clips on both sides supporting the weight and the gimbal doesn't fall.
