PCL-6D follows the skeleton design with convex edges much like the PCL-5DIII L Bracket for Canon 5D Mk III which was released last year.
Like all Sunwayfoto products, it is one-piece, precisely CNC machined from an Aircraft grade aluminium block.
As Sunwayfoto becomes famous for their lightweight gear, the L Bracket couldn't differ so it just weighs 97 gr (~3.4oz), while it can withstand impact to effectively protect the camera. Further it offers all necessary openings for the camera connectors.

Mounting the Bracket on the Camera
|The top right photo shows Canon EOS 6D with a remote release cable installed. It is clear that the vertical bracket openings permit full access to the camera connectors under the rubber covers, as well as the top camera strap loop. In the left photo Canon EOS 6D is mounted on the also new Sunwayfoto FB-36DDH2i ball head in portrait orientation with no obstruction from the remote release. It is also obvious that the battery door at the bottom is fully accessible. Further, if needed the L bracket can be loosened and moved away from the camera body (bottom right photo) which will enable the use of longer connector plugs.|
The package except for the PCL-6D L bracket, will also include 4 x M3 safety stop screws, 1 x 1/4"-20 captive screw and 2 x Allen wrenches for the M3 and 1/4"-20 screws respectively.
I hope you found the information useful, thank you for viewing.
