      As others have mentioned, you actually get 4 of these little things in a package. Can't beat the price for 4 of them. There are many uses for these cool little things, but I use them with the Utility Strap Swivel Hook By Op/Tech USA. The strap has hooks which hook to these adapt-its on my Canon DSLR. This method leaves the smallest "footprint" of a strap I know short of not having a strap at all.

      Now, here is a big tip when installing these Adapt-Its. This is only my personal experience with my Canon XSi and 7D bodies. On one side, it will be easy to push this adapt-it through the hole. You may have to flex it and bend it a little but you should be able to get it thru that side with relative ease. Now the other side where the "eyelet" for lack of a better term is recessed in a "groove" (?), I had a tough time getting it thru that hole. Finally I just tore a small piece of paper (or anything thin and small), placed it under the adapt-it and shoved as much of it into the hole as possible. With a small edge of the paper sticking thru, I grabbed it and pull on the paper while pushing on the adapt-it. That piece of paper basically helped give me some leverage and to guide it thru the hole/eyelet. I hope that made sense.

      A note about the strength of these little things. I have them on my Canon 7D with battery grip and a 70-200 f/2.8IS attached and the Utility Strap Swivel Hook By Op/Tech USA and I have no fears about my camera falling or breaking off my neck. I've also read others mention how they've tested these by hanging heavy things on these adapt-its overnight without problems. I tend to agree... so far I have no fear about these things breaking. They are tough little things. Try em. They're cheap.

      These are very hard plastic and did not work well with my Canon 60D that has the slits going in different directions. It took a lot of force to get one of them in and it was impossible to get the other one in. It does come with 2 sets and they are cheap enough that they were worth a try.

            Works well. But it's not easy to get on or off. I was planning on leaving then mounted all my camera all the time but took them off. Probably would work better with a bigger body, DSLR, or large Micro 4/3.

              I used this on a Canon EOS 40D. The connector is nice on the lef had side when facing the rear of the camera. It is a pain in the finger-tips (I bet you thought I was going to say something else) on the right side. Canon did not make it easy for this type of connector to be used. You have 2 choice on the right side - jam it in top-down or bottom-up. Either way it will not fit as nice as the left side. I went bottom-up and it is functional, but klutzy. It makes changing straps or removing straps simpler.

              I brought this for my Canon 60D because I was having difficulty shooting portraits where the strap was interfering. I read on other comments that they were hard to install but as someone else said just put it in hot water like what you would use for tea and let it sit for a minute. This is a great product that I would recommend to anyone that needs the flexibility of have no camera strap at times .

                  Amazing product! Lets me attach an older metal strap without scratching the body. However the only concern I have is how I am going to remove it from my camera since I can not dip in in hot water to loosen it again. Though the chances of me removing these loops are little to none.

                      I attached one of these to the left strap position of my T3i in case I want to attach my BlackRapid strap there instead of the tripod position - for those tripod kind of days. I initially tried hot water from the tap and that wasn't good enough. Heat some water in the microwave so that it's quite hot and it will go in much easier.

                                  I had doubts when I ordered these that they would fit properly in the camera strap slots of my Sony a200. One slot is parallel to the body of the camera, the other is at 90 degrees. But I heated the adapt-its in hot water for about 5 minutes, and they slid right in -- no problems! They fit great and appear to be very durable. I had a couple of very small swivel hooks from an old purse strap and I had my 'quick release' camera strap all set up 5 minutes later.

                                    Comments about OP/TECH USA System Connectors-Adapt-Its:

                                    Like some other reviewers, I purchased these for use with my BlackRapid RS-7 strap. I love that strap but it was impossible to use when there was a quick release plate, for a tripod, fastened to my camera. This made setting up my tripod a real pain. With these adapt-its, I can now use both simultaneously; switching from tripod to strap is easy as pie!

                                    I have a Canon 7D and it's very difficult to get these on the camera, at first (to me, that's a good thing, it means they're not flimsy). If you follow OP/Tech's advice and put them in very hot (think tea brewing temp) water for 60 seconds, it gets easier.

                                    Once they're on, they work perfectly!

                                        a simple, elegant and inexpensive piece of the solution to my protracted search for a snap-on, snap-off customized camera strap system. these connectors are sturdier than i ever would have guessed. they allow for easy switch to a variety of neck or shoulder strap configurations while side-stepping connection "tails" or forced choice of a quick-release tripod plate as the fix point for strap connections.

                                          Purchased a camera shoulder strap for my Canon - came with no means of connecting to camera - these seem to be very heavy duty (and after a little hot water, some heavy twine and little elbow grease, slipped right into the camera slots). Would hardheartedly recommend to anyone with a similar problem. Saved me from sending the strap back.

                                          I bought these because i needed something to clip my heavier duty shoulder strap to. There work just as i hoped,and i love that they are black.They hold a lot of weight,my 100-400 lens is attached most of the time.Money well spent

                                            Do what thet are designed too, are constructed very strongly and apear should hold up in the long run. I now can swap out 2 different neck straps whenever I want with ease, or remove it completley when using a tripod in just seconds.............you do need to soak them in hot water to attach to a 5D Mk II, but was not a negative at all, I know it is never going to slip out & get lost

                                            I added this product to my Sling Strap for easy clipping on and off. I never liked depending on a 1/4" parachute chord as camera support and this solves the problem. A little hard to install on some cameras, but a little boiling water solves the problem.

                                            Softened them up in boiling water and installed them on my Canon DSLR so I could use a quick release strap. These adapt-its work great.

                                            I use these on a Canon 5d Mark ii and they are doing their job well, along side two ConnectR-2's. It is a little hard to get the Adapt-It's in the camera, but with a little bit of twine (or floss) you can pull it part way through, then take a pair of pliers and finish pulling it through. I didn't mind how hard it was to get it through, it feels very secure.

                                              I wanted to be able to use hock straps on the E-PL1 and bought these just in case.

                                              At that price, they are a steal. You get 2 sets.

                                              They came to my house on a -20C day so I found them hard as rock. But after warming to house temperature, they could be bent easily into the camera slit. One could use a hot air gun or something else too.

                                              Indestructible they appear to be.

                                                These are very hard plastic and did not work well with my Canon 60D that has the slits going in different directions. It took a lot of force to get one of them in and it was impossible to get the other one in. It does come with 2 sets and they are cheap enough that they were worth a try.
