"Removing the camera strap eyelets?"


US
          

For carrying my D7100 I use the Black Rapid RS-4 strap and utilize the tripod mounting connector and clip. My question is has anyone removed the two triangular eyelets for the camera strap mounting from their D7100? They look like a small triangular split ring with a plastic protector in place. I’d like to maybe take mine off without damaging them, in case some day down the road I change my mind and want to put them back on. Anybody done this?

The triangular thingies are indeed small split "rings" with a plastic protector.

I generally don't use a neck strap on my cameras, and the rings are pretty easy to remove. You just lever the plastic part away from the metal with a fingernail (the plastic is slightly flexible, which helps) and then remove the split ring from the camera lug in the usual way. This should not cause any damage, and the rings will be re-fittable if and when required

I thought that it looked pretty easy. Was worried about breaking the little plastic retainers but Brian and Les you are right. They can be removed very easy and no damage at all. Very easy to put back on if needed also. Thanks, Dean

Yet another example of why Nikonians forums are so good and why I browse through on a daily basis. I have learnt and continue to learn so much.

My wife and I also use a Black Rapid straps and I didn't know, without getting our cameras out of their bags, whether I had removed the eyelets. I hadn't, but with the guidance from Brian they were quickly removed from both cameras and stored on the original straps.
