If you’re going to bring your camera with you everywhere, it’s important to keep it safe and secure, especially if it’s expensive and you plan on taking it places that are potentially unsafe. One way to do this is by putting a lanyard on the camera so you can wear it around your neck while shooting and be more aware of where it is. While attaching the lanyard may seem complicated, it really isn’t that hard.
Grab the necessary tools
To start, you’ll need a lanyard and your camera. You will also need a screwdriver to remove the plate on the bottom of the camera. When you have them, follow these steps:
- Unscrew the plate on the bottom of the camera using the screwdriver.
- Remove the camera’s memory card and batteries.
- Thread the lanyard through the hole in the plate.
- Put the battery and memory card back into the camera.
- Screw the plate back onto the bottom of the camera.
- Attach one end of the lanyard to your neck or wrist.
Get started with your DIY project
- First, gather your supplies. You will need a lanyard, a key ring, and a small screwdriver.
- Second, unscrew the battery door on your camera.
- Third, thread the lanyard through the hole on the battery door.
- Fourth, reattach the battery door to your camera.
- Fifth, loop the key ring through the end of the lanyard.
- Sixth, slide the key ring onto your camera strap.
- Seventh, adjust the length of the lanyard so that your camera hangs at your desired height
Attach the split ring on your camera strap eyelet
Most digital cameras come with a small hole on the side or bottom, meant for attaching a strap or carrying loop. If your camera didn’t come with a strap, you can buy one online or at a camera store. Once you have your strap, you’ll need a way to attach it to your camera. The most common way is to use a split ring.
Place the loop through the split ring
First, find the split ring on your lanyard. The small metal ring holds the two ends of the lanyard together. Second, open up the split ring by twisting it apart. You might need to accomplish this with a pair of pliers. Third, thread one end of the lanyard through the split ring. Fourth, thread the other end of the lanyard through the first loop you created. Fifth, pull both ends of the lanyard tight so that the split ring is snug against the fabric. Sixth, check that your camera is secure by tugging on the lanyard. Seventh, enjoy having your hands free while knowing that your camera is safe!
Tie a knot around both parts of the split ring
First, you’ll need a lanyard. You can find these at most office supplies or electronic stores. Next, take the end of the lanyard and thread it through the loop on the top of your camera. Once the lanyard is threaded through, tighten the knot. Now you can adjust the length of the lanyard so that it’s comfortable for you to wear. And that’s it! You’re now ready to rock your new camera accessory.
Test it out!
First, take the lanyard and thread it through the loop on the bottom of the camera. Next, put the loop around your neck and pull tight. Once the loop is secure, put the clip through the loop and snap it shut. Finally, adjust the length of the lanyard so that it hangs comfortably around your neck. And that’s it! Now you’re ready to go hands-free with your camera.
Enjoy your new accessory
Assuming you have a new lanyard and camera, follow these simple steps to get the perfect fit. While holding the camera in one hand, take the lanyard and loop it around your neck. Take the two ends of the lanyard and tie them together tightly, making sure the knot is secure. Then, thread the end of the lanyard through the loop on the side of the camera. Once attached, adjust the length of the lanyard so that it hangs comfortably around your neck. And that’s it! Now you can wear your camera with ease, knowing it’s safe and sound.

Then, tie a knot in the lanyard to keep it from slipping back through the hole.
Now, take the other end of the lanyard and thread it through the loop you just created.
Pull on both ends of the lanyard until it is tight against the camera.
Finally, tie a second knot in the lanyard to secure it in place.
Your camera should now be safely attached to your neck or wrist!
