Heavy-Duty Split Rings, 4‑Pack

(15 customer reviews)

$6.00

Originally designed for our F1 Series camera straps — now available separately.

Split rings are not created equal! Made exclusively for us in the US from a unique steel/magnesium alloy, these aerospace-grade round spring-tempered split rings are 25% stronger than stainless steel — and unlike stainless or titanium, they always spring fully-closed. They’re burnished and tumbled for smoothness, then nickel-plated for corrosion resistance.

They work great with any strap that attaches via 3/8″ (10mm) webbing (the width used on most “stock” camera straps) — and for quick-connectors like Peak Design Anchor Links or OpTech USA Mini QD Loops, they’re uniquely designed to reduce cord wear. A wider, less-angular gap between the wire ends, doesn’t compress the cord against cut metal — as happens with other split rings.

If you’re looking for the best round split rings for attaching a camera strap — you found them. more…

Details

Normally, you don’t hear lengthy descriptions about the seemingly mundane rings that attach your camera strap, but there’s a little bit of a story behind these, so here goes: When we started development on our F1 Series camera straps, we were shocked at how difficult it was to find strong, round, smooth split rings.

All of the US-made rings we tested were strong — but had jagged, angled ends. That’s because US split ring production is aimed at the fishing tackle industry, where angled ends make them easier to thread onto fishing line and lures … Not great for camera straps though.

Most of the imported rings we tested had nice smooth ends, but failed our strength tests miserably (yes — we test everything). Some of the “strong” imported split rings failed at under 20lbs (9.1kg) … Not good!

We weren’t content to settle for either, so we developed our own — and after many months of prototyping, we’re happy to report they tick all the boxes: strong, smooth, and made to the highest tolerances in USA.

The last split ring you’ll ever install. (which is good, because nobody likes installing split rings.)

Install Simplr Split Rings, or a Lug Mount F1

*If you’re just installing Simplr Split Rings, not an F1 camera strap, you can skip straight to 1:07 in this video. Your new F1 will be more pleasant to use if you do a quick “break-in” before installing it on your camera. Adjust the strap from minimum to maximum length about twenty times, by holding […]

    These rings did the trick for me. Like them much better than the typical triangle versions. What I’d also like to mention is the customer service. I contacted Simplr and asked a few questions about using these rings. The response was quick, friendly and helpful. Thanks!!

    These rings are great for keeping a camera safely strapped. They’re the perfect size and are quite sturdy.

  5. Just the right size

    dond

    For my m series Leica, some rings were too big, some too small, this one just right.

  6. Super strong

    redsim

    Seem well made. Far stronger than the triangle clips that come with my Fuji cameras, so they didn’t go on as easily.

    I wanted something different for my X-T3. Never a fan of the triangles. These were just what I was looking for. Classy looking and easy to use.

    I replaced my triangular rings on my Fujifilm cameras with SIMPLR round rings. I couldn’t be happier with them.

    Echoing what others have stated, these are in a completely different league than any other camera ring I have used. Thankfully no more straps wiggling off.

    Great little rings! Just the right size, no rough edges, and they give a real feeling of being very secure on the camera. Yes, they are a bit difficult to get on. I open them a bit first with a thin-bladed knife, then open them a bit more with a small screwdriver to assist the process and to avoid scratching my lugs while installing.

    Marginally tougher to install than some others I’ve used, but far and away the best split rings I’ve used.

    I bought 8 split rings. Gobs better than the triangular versions for my cameras (Olympus EM-1 Mk2).

    Very nice split rings. Super springy and seem very strong. I have them on 3 cameras: one with a regular camera strap, another with Peak Design anchors, and another with a Simplr strap that has the disconnectors. The rings work well with all of them. My new go to for replacing triangular rings.
