Cut Resistant Straps
Each strap contains a pair of braided, 1/16 inch stainless-steel flexi-cables that are sewn into the entire length of the anti-theft camera strap, making the strap slice resistant. The steel cables are smoothly incorporated into the strap and do not affect comfort!
The first adapter is a 3/4 inch metal; chrome plated, continuous loop, "O" ring. This adapter allows the strap to be secured to a device which has any loop to insert the "O" ring adapter onto, similar to a key ring. Attached to the "O" ring is an adjustable strap that allows you to secure your device to the security strap.
The second adapter is a heavy duty metal swivel clip which resembles an oval carabiner. Clip it on to a permanently affixed loop or hook that cannot be opened. This adapter also features a 360-degree swivel, allowing your bag and strap to move with your body movements.
Security Sleeves Provide Additional Protection
The end of each strap has a 5-inch long microfiber sleeve which slides over the adapters to keep them out view and touch of others. These sleeves are movable, or removable if needed.

Bag and Strap Cutters - An International Theft Problem
Typically, the cutting of straps to steal cameras and camera bags happens outside of the United States. Travel to parts of South America, Africa, Europe, or Asia, and you just might come up against bold street thieves who have honed their craft of cutting bag straps slung over the shoulders of unsuspecting travelers. Known in law enforcement circles at "bag cutters" these thieves know that most straps are made of thin leather or nylon webbing. Typically they approach a traveler from behind and quickly cutting the strap off their camera or camera bag then firmly yanking down on it, causing the flimsy strap to break quickly. The thief then makes a quick get-a-way with the camera gear.
