The Compact Sling™ provides the convenience of a shoulder sling for smaller point-and-shoot style cameras. The non-skid neoprene shoulder pad is secure on the shoulder while the camera freely glides up the strap into shooting position. If smaller connectors are needed, check out our System Connectors - Mini QD Loops™ (1mm).
OP/TECH USA's Compact Sling™ offers cushioned comfort in a low-profile design for small point-and-shoot style cameras! The 4mm neoprene pad features a non-skid surface which secures the pad on the shoulder while the camera freely glides up the strap into shooting position. The Mini QD Loop™ connector attaches easily to the camera with a 1.5mm cord loop for tight connection areas and a sturdy 3/8" quick disconnect for easy attachment to the strap. The quick disconnect smoothly glides up and down the 3/8" nylon webbing strap to create the sling effect. The length is fully adjustable and has an additional plastic triglide which serves as a stop so you can adjust where the camera rests in the lowered position.
The Mini QD Loop™ connector is fully compatible with OP/TECH USA’s Mini Loop Strap™ - QD for a more traditional neck strap as well as the Cam Strap™ - QD wrist strap and the Finger Cuff™ - QD. This added versatility enables your gear to quickly change along with your ever-changing needs. Experience the freedom and convenience of the most versatile strap system on the market today!

Recommended Connection Types for direct attachment with the Mini QD Loop
How to Attach a Mini QD Loop to your Camera
1. Thread small cord loop through connection point on camera.
2. Thread mini quick disconnect through opening of loop.
3. Pull mini quick disconnect to tighten knot.
Attaching a Mini QD Loop to camera lugs designed for split rings
Cameras with lugs designed for use with split rings are typically not de-burred as precisely as other connectors; therefore, we recommend using split rings so that there is no risk of damage to the strap from being cut by sharp edges or burrs in the lug.
Questions & Answers
Is it possible to unthread the strap on the Compact Sling in order to remove and/or replace the triglide or quick disconnect?
No, it is not possible to unthread the strap on the Compact Sling. The ends of the webbing are sewn directly to the strap pad. In order to remove the quick disconnect, you would need to cut the webbing and then re-sew it.
