One of Peak Design's newest Kickstarter products is the Anchor Links. Anchor Links is a quick disconnector that can be placed on the ends of a standard camera neck strap and makes for super quick disconnection.


Not much is included with the Anchor Links. Included is a quick setup guide, two anchor links and four anchor disks; two will be used and the other two is incase the first two get frayed, you can change them out.

The anchors is pretty much a standard piece for all Peak Design products that require quick disconnecting. They were first introduced with the Cuff Wrist Strap and Leash Camera Strap.


The anchor links are made of durable hard plastic. It works with straps up to 12mm wide and will pretty much work with all camera straps.


Each Anchor is made from braided Kevlar® cord overmolded with Delrin® thermoplastic. An individual Anchor can withstand over 100 lbs. of force and is designed to be safely used with cameras and lenses of any size and weight.

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.
D. Attach the Clutch 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.


To install the Anchor Links to your camera:
1. Take the end of your camera strap and loop it through the slot on the anchor link from behind and pull it through.
2. Put the end of the strap through the bottom of the buckle and pull it through.
3. Put the strap over and through the other end of the buckle and pull the strap through.
4. This completes the install and repeat steps 1-3 for the other side.


Once installed, you can place the anchor disks anywhere you want and attach your camera strap to the anchor disks. Either on each side for the conventional placements or one on the side and the other at the bottom of the camera as shown above.
