Peak Design issue

I bought a camera clip from Peak Design but it seems not to work for me when I try to insert the Oly 5 Mark II with either the 12-40mm or the 7-14mm
Only one position is possible and I couldn't insert the camera in my belt with the lens towards the floor.
What am I missing here ?
Photos taken while the 12-40 was mounted

Re: Peak Design issue

Maybe the lens diameter is to large and not letting the foot enter the socket.
If so then maybe you could shim (space) the foot further away from the body if its not that much.
If it is a lot then you may need a longer screw but be very carfull, good luck and let us know how you get on.
