For all intents and purposes, the Swift Clamp looks like the most secure solution to my problem. But at $149.95, the clamp would more than twice as expensive as either of the straps it would be used on. Converting both straps using the Swift Clamp would require a $300.00 investment. To me, that seemed a bit excessive. Therefore, I looked for an alternative solution.
With a little more research, I stumbled across this YouTube video (by Lee, Enthusiast Photographer) that described using a standard Arca-Swiss style clamp affixed to the BlackRapid FastenR-3 D-ring that comes standard with all BlackRapid straps. The video also noted that you can use an OP/TECH USA Uni-Loop to connect the BlackRapid ConnectR-2 to your L-bracket for added security (shown below). If you aren't using an L-bracket but you are using a battery grip, you can also connect the Uni-Loop to the battery grip's hand strap mount.
