The Grip Strap offers a secure system for carrying an SLR camera in the hand. The Grip Strap is adjustable to fit snugly across the back of the hand and attaches comfortably around the wrist with snaps.
The Grip Strap™ offers a secure system for carrying an SLR camera in the hand. It’s ideal for photographers on the run who want their cameras always "at the ready". The metal base plate has a rubber pad to protect the camera’s finish and uses a case screw to firmly attach to the tripod mount area of the camera. The Grip Strap™ is secured to the base plate and one of the camera attachment areas. If a third attachment area exists on the camera, the base plate connection can be removed from the strap. This leaves a 3/8" webbing connection for the third connection area. This also keeps the tripod mount area available for use.
The unique loop attachment system enables the strap to quickly snap in place using our Uni-Loop™ quick disconnects (included with strap). These connectors can also be used on other strap configurations. The Grip Strap™ has a soft, durable neoprene pad that is adjustable. It fits snugly across the back of the hand and attaches comfortably around the wrist with snaps. This dual system provides a comfortable and secure strap.

I've used one of these on several cameras (the same strap!) and it's saved cameras multiple times! You can release the camera and with the strap adjusted correctly it just hangs on your wrist, it's not going anywhere....
I've been using a Grip Strap with my Canon EOS 20D for years. Carrying a heavy camera around my neck is not an option. This Grip Strap is comfortable to wear, even with the heavy camera, and I believe the camera is more safely carried (camera cannot swing around and hit something), on cruises, I'm not afraid to hold the camera over the side of the ship to get a shot, the camera does not always have to be gripped, I can open my hand and rest it from gripping. In hot weather, since the grip is made of "wet suit" material my hand will perspire and will be absorbed into the grip material. I simply wash it out in soap and water, dry it and I'm ready to go again. All in all, I wouldn't be without one of these.
