View Full Version : Wrist strap to tripod thread?
Seems to be my week for "strapping issues." ;-)
I'm looking for a bright idea to go from the ring of the Gordi wrist strap, to the 1/4 inch tripod adapter thread of a Fed-1g with no ears.
Let's hear and thanks, mike
Whatever you do, it will work itself loose and then your camera will crash to the ground.
what about a 1/4 key screw and a washer - no ring?
You know, I really read your thread as 'Wrist strap to tripod HEAD'.. So, you can imagine how curious I was about what you were trying to achieve.
Serious though, if its a small thread in there, why not scavenge an old tripod for the screw and hook the ring on that screw (with a washer if the screw head is smaller than the ring)?
A bit of locktite (the one that can be taken loose again) should keep it in place.
Thanks guys... The more expensive solution is the Gordy wrist strap with a connector designed for 1/4 inch tripod thread. See Link:
There's a nuts & bolts shop near the auto repair district nearby, andf I'll check there first. BTW: The Fed-1g [almost same camera as Zorki 1] is goint to Oleg for CLA.
Mike, if you send me your address, I'll send you one I happen to have...this is what it looks like:
I am looking for a tripod screw with a D-ring, like the one you posted here. Do you know where I may find something like that?
I appreciate your help.
