    Hey guys, I just joined and wanted to share this with you. It's a little trick that I have been using what seems like forever. All my cameras have a washer threaded into the camera strap. If you have ever been in a situation where you have a tripod plate that you need to remove or tighten on to your camera and don't have a screwdriver or coin then you will appreciate this. It means that you are always able to tighten or loosen a tripod plate using the washer.

    Hope this helps.

    And if you get a needle and cotton out, you can sew it so it stays in one place on your strap.

    I have something similar on my key ring for the same reason.
