You might have noticed we recently upgraded our embroidered straps with more durable clips that are safer to use! While this is exciting for a photographer who changes lens' regularly or shoots with heavy duty equipment - the new clips MIGHT be too big to fit onto your specific camera model.
Our camera straps are designed to easily attach to the metal loop of your DSLR camera - and they don't fit, no need to worry, we have an easy fix!

All you need are these simple key rings. Depending on your DSLR camera, the clips might fit into one metal loop but not the other, so make sure to try out your strap before so you know how many keyrings you need. Once you have the sturdy key ring, loop it through the metal loop on each side of the camera. When the key rings are attached to the loops and sturdy, clip your camera strap to the keys rings and you're good to go!
While our straps are durable and made to support the weight of your camera, it's important to use key rings that are also strong enough to withstand the weight. We know how special (and expensive) cameras are to our customers, so when picking out key rings make sure they are small enough to fit through the metal loop but strong enough to support the camera and the strap!
To take it step further, you can also find a simple solution to protecting the clip from scratching your camera bod. One option is a camera strap extender, this will provide ample space between your clip and camera body.
Another options is an o-ring strap bumper! This is also an option to protect your camera from split ring to body contact. The thick rubber material makes sure that the split ring is away from damaging the camera body.
Don't forget! Our embroidered straps double as bag straps too. You can customize your leather color so you to match it right to your favorite cross body bag!
