I'm a cheapo and I cannot see myself spending the kind of money some manufacturer are charging for straps. Therefore when I saw the threads regarding the use of paracords. It inspired to to research it and make my own.

I don't like neck strap so I made this wrist strap:

This is how it's attached to the battery grip:

An alternative way:

I got really crazy and put 50 feet on my monopod:

Then I couldn't stop. The madness continues. 150 feet on my Kata:

I know I need to seek medical help.:oops:

Can you point us at the knots you used?

Obviously the wrist strap is two cords. I don't recognize the knot.

I'm not sure I see the purposes of the monopod and Kata cords (other than being able to carry tons of paracord around). Nor, again, do I recognize the knots.

Curiosity is driving me nuts!

All I want is a 10-2000 f/0.5L with no distortion that weighs 100 grams, fits in my pocket, and costs $300. Is that too much to ask?

Actually three cords. The (1) brown accent colour, (2) lanyard knot (external link) for the centre, and (3) survival bracelet (external link). I did it this way so that I did not have to use a nylon quick-snap buckle.
[EDIT]This is where I got the idea of no buckles. I has a great tutorial. I just added my own flavour. (external link)

Most of the time, there's no need for it while hiking. But where can you carry that much length of cord and not being in a way? It's called Storage Sinnet (external link). I got the idea from this member
https://photography-on-the.net …?p=13372728&pos​tcount=428

Most instructions/ideas came from Stormdrane's blog (external link).

Here's my first try. It's actually backwards.

You are definitely not a cheapo. You are just being your creative self. I love mods and DIYs. Thanks for sharing! :D

thanks for your kind words.

I don't have a photo. But I will post one later with the mod I did for the Kata bag. I used the sling to fashion a Luma style strap (external link).
