Product Description

With the OP/TECH USA SYSTEM CONNECTORS, the camera/binocular owner has several connection options. You can buy an extra set of connectors to customize the strap to best suit your needs. Straps can be lengthened to be worn across the chest or shortened to be worn at chest level. Another feature of the SYSTEM CONNECTORS is the small carrying handle created when the quick disconnects are latched together. The UTILITY LOOP System Connector allows a camera to be attached to a strap with Swivel Hooks. The UTILITY LOOP System Connector is available in sets of two.

These loops are very strong and well made.

I purchased a Black Rapid RS-7 strap recently, but I still wanted use of my tripod connector, where the RS-7 attaches. These utility loops were the perfect solution, with these on the camera the RS-7's carabiner attaches to a loop on either side of the camera. I found that it works best attached to the left side, on the right it tends to get in the way if I'm shooting vertically.

The loops themselves are very sturdy, and add about 2" of length each to a strap once snug. That extra length is a good thing when used with the Black Rapid strap, since it the strap is designed to attach to the camera bottom, about 2.5" below the camera strap connection points on a 40D body.

My main gripe with these is minor - the fabric is very stiff, and won't lie flat when you're trying to thread them through the camera's connection points. While a single thickness would thread easily, a doubled thickness simply won't. I used a bit of thread to pull the loop through the connection point, but even so it was a bit tricky because the fabric kept wanting to turn sideways. These would be a /lot/ easier to use if they worked like a conventional camera strap, threading a single strand through and then securing that strand to the strap with a plastic length adjustment buckle. That's how the Tamrac N-11 - Backpack Camera Straps - Black work, but those end in clips rather than rings. I prefer the ring connectors of these Op/Tech Utility Loops because they're simpler and more secure.

Great addition to your OP/TECH camera strap or any other clip that will fit through. It was a tight fit through the loop on my Canon 5D MkII but it just takes a little maneuvering.

Once I got these on the camera, they lie perfectly flat. They are very sturdy. My fears for the old strap were that it would fray and break. No fears with these straps.

So I did have some trouble getting these on the camera. First, you have to get the loop to go through the camera's slot. Easier on one side than the other, but essentially, just fold the loop and push and push and push. OK, on the second side, I used dental floss to help it along. Monofilament line would work too. At the end, I just yanked as hard as I could. The strap came through.

After the strap is through the slot, the next challenge is to get it to lie flat. Since I pulled it through as a folded strap, one side is flipped from where it needs to be. To get the leverage I needed, I mounted the camera on a tripod and used pliers on the strap. Tough going, but the result is totally worth it.

There are two ways to thread the strap through the camera slots. Bottom-up and Top-down. I chose top down so that the final result would be flat against the camera body. In this case, top-down means that when the strap is approaching the camera (before going through the slot) it is above the camera. The loop is pulled through the slot from top to bottom. Then, the rubber part of the strap is run through the loop (which is now below the slot) and everything is cinched up.

As a final note, this is almost the most perfect way of attaching a strap to the camera. This works with my BlackRapid strap, but it also works with my Op/Tech straps. When no strap is desired, the short little adapters stay mostly out of the way.

Good product exactly same as described, very light and almost no visible. It is not necessary to take it off when you detach your camera from harness.

I wanted to change to a quick release camera strap, but didn't find anything on the market that I liked as much as my the strap I was using. So, I bought some quality snaps for the strap, and put these loop connectors on my camera -- and the combo is working great. The only complaint is that, as could be foreseen, the loops tend to be a nuisance just hanging/flopping around when the strap is not connected to them.

I love these little extensions. It works great for the extra added length for my camera strap. Now, I can carry my DSLR over my shoulder instead of around my neck with comfort.

I have these fitted to all my DSLR's to allow me to swap around my shoulder strap or use with the safety strap on my Cotton Carrier. Zero fears or concerns even with heavy loads on it (1D MKIII with a 70-200mm MKII) - about all the weight your likely to walk around and hand hold!
Great idea and zero problems!

I needed a connector to help attach my DIY r-strap to my D90's camera strap lug. I don't like the idea of hanging my camera by the tripod lug so the utility loop provided the best solution to attach my strap. It is well built and I have no fear of it falling apart or releasing my camera.
