I also purchased OP/TECH USA Utility Loop Connector, a different product that serves the same function as these Adapt-Its. Both solutions work and are functional, however I had a slight issue with these Adapt-Its on my Canon T4i and T5i bodies and I had zero issues with the loops. I decided not to use these and instead ordered a second set of loops, I just keep these Adapt-Its as backups.
The slight issue I had with this product is that they attach to the camera body very close to (and pointed at) the power/mode dial on the Canon T4i and T5i bodies. This makes changing modes quickly a bit of a hassle sometimes. They don't fully obstruct the dial (which is still usable), but they do get in the way. I didn't have any similar issue with the loops because they are flexible and just hang off the side.
Fitting/installing these was relatively easy. It was helpful to soak the Adapt-Its in hot water before inserting them into the hooks, it's a very tight squeeze on Canon bodies.Read more ›
So I wanted some way where I can easily release the neck strap.
This fits on one side and on the other side I put a triangle ring along with the Canon E1 handstrap.
These hooks are great because they don't swing around and make noise. They're small and stay firmly in place on my canon T3i.
Theres a little trick though to making it fit since you need to insert it at an angle on the T3i.
What you need to do is boil some water and drop the connecter in. Let it sit for about a minute or 2. Take it out, dry it and shove it in. It will bend and secure right in place. (see picture I added to description) Good product.
Hope this review helps someone else out there looking for something similar.
These little gems saved the day for me. I have an unused vintage camera strap I wanted to attach to my new camera. It had 3" long metal clips that were attached to swivel D-rings that are attached to the actual strap. The metal clips just barely attached to the strap mount on my camera but it was very noisey (metallic jingle) and the large clip interfered with the camera's On/Off button. I removed the clips and set out to find some sort of double ended clip or small carabiner, hoping to find something vinyl coated to dampen the jingle. That didn't happen, but I did find a nice little double ended clip (S-biner) made of metal. http://amazon.com/Nite-Ize-LSBM-11-2R3-S-Biner-Stainless/dp/B00BKVPTVS/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1429133396&sr=8-4&keywords=s-biner
It worked a little better than the original clip had, but again it was more noisy than I liked. First I found the OP/TECH Utility Loop Connector and that worked better than the previous set-ups. Then I stumbled upon these Adapt-Its, which is a good name for something that I wouldn't have otherwise known what to call besides "doodads". It adapts my mounting brackets on the camera to a silent mount AND it can be attached either way giving me the flexibility to allow more clearance around the On/Off button. Since this probably doesn't make much sense, I am attaching some photos of my now perfectly adapted set-up.
I have to state how impressed I am with the fantastic quality of the OP/TECH items I purchased.Read more ›
Now, here is a big tip when installing these Adapt-Its. This is only my personal experience with my Canon XSi and 7D bodies. On one side, it will be easy to push this adapt-it through the hole. You may have to flex it and bend it a little but you should be able to get it thru that side with relative ease. Now the other side where the "eyelet" for lack of a better term is recessed in a "groove", I had a tough time getting it thru that hole. Finally I just tore a small piece of paper (or anything thin and small), placed it under the adapt-it and shoved as much of it into the hole as possible. With a small edge of the paper sticking thru, I grabbed it and pull on the paper while pushing on the adapt-it. That piece of paper basically helped give me some leverage and to guide it thru the hole/eyelet. I hope that made sense. I also read that you can throw it in some hot boiling water for a few seconds to "soften" them. Then quickly push them through your camera body's strap holes. I didn't do it this way, but it makes sense and should work.
Some free advice from personal experience... if you happen to own the OPTech Utility Strap Swivel Hook, don't use that strap with these adapt-its! In my opinion that strap's "hooks" have a flawed design which enables the strap's hook to easily detach from an adapt-it or anything it's hooked to.Read more ›

These worked great on the Nikon but I cant get them to go in the Sony to save my life even after heating in warm water and all that.
For the Nikon its 5 stars.
