Connecting Black Rapid strap to camera side strap mount
Feb 12, 2014

Hi all I recently bought a Black Rapid (Metro) sling strap for my 70D and it seems great but I think I'd only want to use it for the occasions that I head out without my camera bag. I usually use a hand strap that connects from one strap mount and screws into the bottom and like not having the big sling/strap in the way.

I'd like to have a ring of some sort on the other strap mount to easily attach my Black Rapid when I need it. Questions:

1) Is it even safe to attach a ring to the side strap mount of the camera? Can just one of them safely carry the weight of the camera?

2) Recommendations on what ring to get? I assume it needs to be a pretty heavy duty split ring.

FYI: the hand strap I use is this:


Canon EOS 70D
