Sometimes some minor adjustments are necessary in order to salvage a camera harness strap from its demise. After all, no one wants to have to go purchase another one just because a few threads came lose or a part was lost. There are definitely ways of fixing a broken strap for cameras and they can be done by just about anyone.
Rip or Tear
If the camera harness strap has a small rip or tear or has even been completely severed in two pieces, there are some ways to get around that. For a completely severed rip, it’s best to simply sew the two pieces back together using a heavy duty sewing machine. While not everyone has one on hand, it could easily be obtained by asking neighbors or tailors to do. If there is simply a small rip or tear, it’s best to patch it back up with either needle or thread or actually melt the pieces back together using a cigarette lighter. That should be done in a safe place with proper safety precautions.
Lost Metal Ring
You can tell if a camera harness strap is supposed to have a metal ring by reading the camera harness reviews before-hand. If you have purchased one but lost the metal ring, there are a few options. The best option is to get a key ring to replace it with. Usually they are easy to find and inexpensive to purchase. If that is not possible, it’s a good idea to call the manufacturer and ask for a replacement. Better replace the metal ring rather than to have to replace the whole thing.
