The Utility Strap™ - Sling offers rapid access to your camera while maintaining the security of a strap worn across the shoulder. The Utility Strap™ - Sling comes with two of OP/TECH USA’s Uni-Loop Connectors™. Most cameras will only need one Uni-Loop, but for cameras with a third strap-connection point or when used with a battery grip, the second Uni-Loop Connector will be used. Your gear hangs securely at the side and will glide up and down the sling without interfering with a camera's tripod mount connection. The patented weight-reduction feature combines two layers of neoprene with an internal elastic support layer and non-skid surface to form a comfortable, durable strap that makes carrying heavy gear a joy. OP/TECH USA’s quick disconnects (QDs) are rated at 146 pounds tensile strength, so you know your gear is secure.
The Utility Strap™ - Sling XL Quick Adjust offers all the great features of the Utility Strap™ - Sling but gives you a much larger adjustability range with an added 5" in length. The quick adjust feature allows the sling to be quickly cinched tight up against the body for added protection by simply tugging on the webbing loop. This is especially handy when gear needs to be kept close to the body in rough terrain or in large crowds. When the proper shooting position is desired, simply lift the buckle with a single finger and pull down on the camera with your other hand. It's quick and easy!
Combine the Utility Strap™ - Sling Utility Strap™ - Sling XL Quick Adjust with other OP/TECH USA products for even more possibilities.
Create a safety lanyard for your camera on the Utility Strap™ - Sling with the use of the System Connectors - Extensions (sold separately)
For added peace of mind for those photographers who would normally only have one connection point, you can attach your camera to the sling by two points with the use of an Extension System Connector (sold separately as a set of two). One Extension piece would be attached to the back quick disconnect on the sling and connect over to the Uni-Loop™ attached to the left side of the camera. When you raise your camera to the shooting position, the Extension lanyard will be out of the viewing area. The complete set of Extensions can also be used to transform the Utility Strap™ - Sling into a regular neck/shoulder strap. As a result, you get two straps in one with this easy conversion.
Switch the Utility Strap™ - Sling to a neck strap with a set of System Connectors - Extensions (sold separately)
With OP/TECH USA's Extensions System Connectors, it's easy to switch from a sling setup to a neck/shoulder strap. Simply remove the sling connection from the neoprene pad and attach the Extensions to each side. It's now long enough to comfortably connect to the Uni-Loops™ attached to your camera.
Wear the Utility Strap™ - Sling on your right shoulder with a set of System Connectors - Gender Changers™ (sold separately)
With the addition of the Gender Changers™ (sold separately), you can switch the configuration of the strap to work on your right shoulder so that all of the sling hardware is in the proper position for ease of use and mobility.
