Split Rings, 4‑Pack

$6.00

Want to upgrade your non-Simplr camera strap? Start with the split rings!

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.

Ideally sized for 3/8″ (10mm) webbing … the width used on most camera straps.

Standard – 60lbs (27kg)
Heavy-Duty – 80lbs (36kg)

Camera Straps Made in USA

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.

How-To

Install a Lug Mount F1 Series Strap, or Split Rings

*If you’re just installing Simplr Split Rings, not an F1 camera strap, you can skip straight to 1:07 in this video. Mounting a camera strap with split rings is just like putting a key on a keychain — but instead of a key, it’s a camera. Situate your Lug Mount F1 or F1ultralight so the […]

Who Needs These?

Our split ring 4-packs are intended as an upgrade for non-Simplr straps, as a premium-quality replacement part, or for DIY’ers.

Simplr lug mount camera straps already have our split rings built-in — so if you’re getting one of those, you don’t need to order split rings.
