Regular length leather camera wrist strap. Handmade in the U.S.A. gordy's camera strap

Wrist strap, string

Some cameras don't have lugs to attach a split-ring, but they have recessed rods or posts. A string strap works best for these cameras. 

The attaching string is the same heavy-duty waxed cord that's used for the wrapping. The string is surprisingly strong and attaches to the strap securely. Check out my strength test for a better visual. Make sure there are no sharp edges where you would attach it. If there are, you should use a Lug-mount wrist strap. You can also check out our page "Which strap do you need?" for a better visual. 

I've also included a black rubber o-ring to each strap so you can reduce the strap opening for a more snug fit. 

Don't forget those light meters and photography tools you use. You can hang them from your tripod when you work. 

Some phone cases also have a slot for string straps.



The string wrist strap comes in two sizes: Regular for $20 and Long for $21. They are measured with the leather flattened. To find which one works best for you can simulate the strap with a piece of string (that is double the dimension)  and try it on for size.

Leather color: Made of Latigo belt leather, my handmade camera straps are tough, flexible, and pliable. They have a natural luster that only improves with age and softens with use. Keep in mind that there are always variations in leather. The color and texture can vary from hide to hide. Please allow for this.

Color wheel

Wrapping cord color: You can choose between 16 different wrap colors. 
Be bold or keep it simple.

Attach cord color: One of the best parts of the string strap is that you get to choose the wrap color and the color of the attach string.

  Wrist Pad 

Wrist pads are not available for string straps. The entire strap has to thread through the string loop and unfortunately, that's not going to happen with a wrist pad on it. Luckily the cameras that require a string are lightweight and don't need one anyway.  

 Attach to a rod 

  1. First, feed the string through the rod. You might need something to poke it through on cameras with a small opening.
  2. Then, pull the strap through the loop.
  3. Pull tight and it's attached.

 Attach to a post 

  1. Start with an open string.
  2. Bend the tip back to make two ears.
  3. Bend the ears down to make a loop and place it over the groove in the post.
  4. Pull tight.
