Micro Anchor quick-connection system

The beauty of Peak Design camera straps lies in their patent-pending Micro Anchor quick-connection system. The Peak Design team spent months testing countless designs before we arrived at the right combination of speed, security and ease-of-operation.

Attaching the Anchor & Housing

Start by attaching the Micro Anchors to the strap loops on your camera. The Anchors can actually attach to any loop on any object – camcorders, POV video devices, compasses, water bottles – so we encourage you to get creative with it.


A. Insert the anchor cord through the strap loop.

B. Create a loop with the anchor cord and bring the anchor disc through it.

C. Pull the Anchor disc tight. The knot you created is called a Cow Hitch. Moo.

D. Attach Leash or Cuff to the Anchor by sliding the anchor disc into the housing in the direction shown.

E. When fully inserted, you’ll hear a “click.” The Anchor is now locked in. To disconnect, press down on the anchor disc with your thumb and push the anchor out in the direction of the arrow.

Suggested Anchor Locations


F. Anchors can attach to any loop on your camera. This includes built-in strap loops, as well as the strap loops on the Capture quick-release plates (sold separately).

G. Place an Anchor on a D-ring or loop on your backpack – if you use Capture, this will allow you to securely tether your camera to your pack. This is helpful during physical activities like hiking, climbing, scrambling and skiing.

H. Place an Anchor on the triangle ring of Leash. This comes in handy during certain Leash configurations.
