1.0 out of 5 stars BROKE QUICKLY, July 8, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Chums Waterproof Camera Float (Camera)
I have had this for a little over a month and only have used it a couple times. I picked the camera up today by the yellow strap and it broke at the point where the strap was sewn on to the black connector portion. I would not recommend this product.

The same just happened with mine. Used first time and the yellow strap disconnected from the black connector, so useful.

maybe it just couldnt handle the weight of the camera by you picking it up by the float...? i mean when its in the water, the camera would become less heavy and the flat could work, but it probably just cant support the weight of the camera alone, which, yes, IS a design flaw, and would probably make people less sure to want it and trust it with their camera. im just saying though, maybe it is really crap.

I bought this product without reading comments because it just looked like exactly what I wanted... then I got it, and saw a huge flaw. The black clip pops off soooo easy!!!! BUUUTTTTT, let me tell those who have bought this already that it is okay. You can rig it like I have to make this a perfectly good device. Besides, the other alternatives are bulky and ugly in my opinion, right? Okay. So the idea is to attach your original camera's wrist strap along side of this floatable strap. Once both are attached (you might already see where I am going with this), you send the original strap thru the yellow float strap (thru the large hole for your wrist) and then send your entire camera thru your original strap on the other side. This is what I call lassoing your original strap to your float strap as a backup cord. This way you get a secure connection to your camera and a nice slick looking float.

I also added pics of this to the product on amazon for you to check out for added support. Hope this helps!! PS. Chums should have made a better product in the first place, but lets make lemonade out of a lemon!
