ABOUT THE PRODUCT
How do I connect your straps onto my camera?
Our vibrant straps are easily adjustable and comes with 3/8" webbing with a plastic ladder-lock and strap keeper. Just thread it onto the slotted ring of your camera and you’re good to go.
Can I trim off the extra webbing? There’s more here than I need.
Sure. The extra webbing is there in case you want to carry your camera low, but you can cut it off you want. Make sure to leave a few inches of length in case you need it and make an angled cut with sharp scissors. It’s a good idea to burn the end with a lighter to keep it from fraying.
What kind of cameras is strap550 compatible with?
We make our straps for most DSLR and SLR Cameras made by Sony, Canon, Nikon, and Pentax. Our nylon piece attaching to your camera is 3/8 inch wide. To be on the safe side, cut a piece of cardboard ½ inch wide and see if it fits through the slots of your camera. My Parachute cord straps also fit in some larger point and shoot cameras, but it’s YOUR responsibility to do a test to see if the dimensions will work for your device.
What are these straps made of?
These handcrafted straps are made from colorful parachute cord 550, nylon webbing, metal buckles and plenty of creativity. When you click through the products, you’ll see each strap description lists the appropriate information. While your camera probably isn’t 550 pounds, Parachute cord can generally withstand that weight. The nylon webbing rates at 220 pounds tensile strength. I tested these straps up to 50 pounds.
How long are your straps?
Our standard 3/8” straps adjust from 40" to 50". I can accommodate special requests for a shorter or longer strap if you email me about the details in advance.
Will strap550 fit on my point and shoot or slr camera?
Does your camera have a slotted hole? Double check to see if 3/8” of material can fit through if. If so, then our 3/8” webbing will fit. Be sure to check, some cameras just offer a thin piece of thread to wind through. We might offer these versions in the future.
How do I Care for my Strap550?
We strongly encourage spot cleaning your Strap50 with a soft, non-abrasive fabric cleaner. Skip any detergents with bleach, or you may alter the color of your strap. Apply the cleaner with a damp rag and gently wipe with clean, cold water. Air dry your stray and avoid putting under heat or risk shrinking it. Be aware the strap could stretch a total of 2% when in contact with water. This means 2% over the total lifespan of the strap, and per cleaning.
