Hi.

I'm looking for suggestions for a hand strap/shoulder strap or sling with a quick change system from one to another. I am currently using the Clik hand strap but there are times when out with the children that it would be great to leave the hand strap in the car and quickly put on a shoulder strap or sling without spending 10 minutes threading the webbing through all the plastic lock pieces. Does anything like this exist out there?

Thanks.

The Leash and Cuff system by Peak Design that they just put through Kickstarter might be worth looking at too: https://peakdesignltd.​com/leash-cuff/ (external link)

Good for the quick change connector system, but a wrist strap is not the same as a hand strap.

I am not aware of any quick change connector system that would allow you to easily go from sling to hand strap. Most of the replies so far have been for wrist straps which are obviously not the same thing as a hand strap.

You could get some Op/Tech Adapt-Its (external link) and put some swivel hooks on all of your different types of straps. This would take care of the quick connection part, but it would also provide a less snug fit for the hand strap. Is it even worth it to use a hand strap without that snug fit?
