    I tried searching but couldn't find a guide to removing D-Rings - is there a method someone could tell me to remove them as I want to install a Gordy strap to it.

    Do you mean the triangles with black plastic clips? If that is what you are talking about, it comes off just like a key ring (a very small tough to open key ring). Then you get the fun of installing the even tighter Gordy ring! :biggrin: JK, I love Gordy's stuff, and it is well worth it once you have it installed (and don't need to remove it).

    Hmmmm... that reminds me, what camera company shipped a little tool to help spread out those rings?

    Yes, the fuji ring tool is very well designed , unfortunately I didn't discover it until after I had gone through the frustration of installing my Gordy strap. That's what I get for playing before reading the manual.

    Thanks guys, I figured itout about 2mins after posting was pretty easy.

    I got fooled by the black clips cos they look like they have tiny screws that needed undoing but all good, Gordy is on.

    Are the triangular rings easy to unhook(and reassemble)? I am tempted to get a Gordy strap and use it with the original triangular rings... probably won't fit though...

    I've tried the triangular rings with a gordy strap - it was a no go. The ring had to spread out too much to wrap around the leather and wouldn't spring back - it destroyed the ring. This was a ring from an old film camera though, not one of the Olympus rings.

    Thanks, I was worrying about that too. The leather looks a bit too thick to fit. Oh well, Gordy rings should work just fine then.
