If you are wondering how to attach strap to camera, then you’ve come to the right place. First of all identify where the tripod socket is. Most cameras these days will come with the tripod socket at the bottom of the camera, but some cameras may have it on the side of the camera. Once you have done that, keep reading.

Steps to attach a Strap to a Camera

If you look closely enough at it, you should be able to see three tiny marks surrounding the hole. This is you will need to use a screwdriver when you attach a strap. We’ll get to that in just a moment, though, so don’t worry!

You can attach straps to cameras in several different ways. The most popular way is to insert the screw through the strap and into your camera via this tripod socket. However, if you have an older or more unique camera, there may not be a tripod socket to attach it to.

For these types of cameras, you can either drill a hole (not recommended!) and insert a screw there instead or use some kind of adhesive to attach the strap directly onto the body of your camera. Adhesive can leave residue, however, so in those cases you might be better off with a case instead that has holes for straps.

OK so now that we know where our tripod socket is on our camera, let’s go ahead and get that thing attached! All you need for this part are some scissors or wire cutters (whichever you prefer) as well as your strap! Now snip off about two or three inches of strap (about 2-3 centimeters). Keep this little piece, you’ll need it later on.

Now let’s cut off the adjusters at each end of the strap. Just snip them off near where they meet with the actual camera strap part. Again, make sure not to damage the actual straps, so only cut off what is necessary!

OK now we can go ahead and thread our screw through one side of the lens, all the way up to that tripod hole in your camera.

All you need to do now is take one part of your strap and thread it through the other side of the lens hole. Then reattach the little rubber things (the adjusters) onto each end of the straps. And…voila! You’re finished! And now your strap is attached!
