Replacement Camera Strap Clips

Does anyone know where to get the little triangle clips that mount to the camera to hold the strap?

An alternative source that's easy to find, and a lot cheaper (especially if you need a lot of them) is to go to a fishing tackle store and get heavy duty stainless steel split rings that are used to rig terminal tackle for larger game fish. You can pick an appropriate size and get pkgs of ten for a couple of bucks.

These type are an accident waiting to happen as they can pull apart much easier than the split rings that came with your camera. I dont particularly like nylon that can rub and become worn either. Like mentioned the better replacement is to find stainless triangular split rings like those that came with your camera.

Not a lover of these triangular split rings as they tend to 'grate' on the camera strap lug causing wear; not surprising when you consider all that weight on such a small point on contact.

I gave up using these after a few weeks & opted for the Black Rapid method using the tripod socket on the base of the camera; the camera 'hangs' better when using longer focal length lens & 'cause it's slung across the shoulder, there's no neck strain.
