The 3/8" Webbing Connectors are durable nylon webbing with triglides that attach easily to a camera. They are interchangeable with many of OP/TECH USA camera straps.
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. Download the Info Sheet on the 14 different System Connectors™.
The 3/8" Webbing Connectors are durable nylon webbing with triglides and are fully adjustable. The 3/8" Webbing Connectors are available in sets of two, with one female and one male connection.

How to Attach a 3/8" Webbing Connector to your Camera
1. Pass the end of the webbing through the connector on the camera.
2. Pass it back through the first opening on the plastic buckle.
3. Pass it through the second opening on the plastic buckle.
4. Pull tight for a secure hold.
I did this before, ordering web connectors for my longer lenses rather than having to add a second strap having to contend with the camera strap as well.
I used these Op/tec connectors, connecting them to my long lens strap brackets, then all you do is close the 'quick connect' around the camera strap. It keeps you from having to have two cumbersome straps around your neck, and although it probably isn't quite as protective as the two straps, it will keep either the camera or lens from hitting the floor if there is a unlock mishap.
What a great investment that solves a problem! Thank you Op-tec for providing lots of options for us photographers, online too, saving us so much time looking for these things to fine-tune our gear!
