Simplr Split Rings 4‑Pack

Split rings are not created equal!

Made exclusively for us in the US from a unique steel/magnesium alloy, these 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. These are the very same aerospace-grade split rings built into our F1 camera strap.

We designed them to work especially well with cord loop connectors, like Mini QD Loops or Peak Design Anchor Links (vastly superior to triangular rings), but they work great with any strap that attaches via 3/8″ (10mm) webbing, the width used on most “stock” camera straps.

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

Usually ships in 1–2 business days.

Overview

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 designing our F1 Sling-Style Camera Strap, 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.)

How-To

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 […]
