Peak Design AL-3 overview

  • 1Description

AL-3 Anchor Links from Peak Design allow you to quickly and securely attach and detach most standard camera straps from your camera. The AL-3 anchors will indicate when it is time to replace your anchors. The outside sheath of the anchor is black, the middle sheath is yellow and the inner sheath is red. When you start seeing yellow, it's time to replace your anchors. Two Links for the strap are included, as are four Anchors that attach to your camera. Photographers will appreciate the low-profile anchor design and angled shape for one-handed operation that distinguishes the AL-3 from earlier versions. The AL-3 is compatible with Peak Design tripod plates.

Each anchor can withstand over 200 lbs of force
Works with straps up to 0.5" / 12mm wide

    AL-3 Anchor Links is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 19.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, but.... I've got no issues with the product nor with the seller, B&H. However, it's a bit on the pricy side for only two anchor link adapters and four anchor links. I would have preferred four of each. Had to buy two sets to get enough adapters for two cameras and am left with excess anchor links.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for your DSLR and some mirrorless cameras I've been using the Anchor links by Peak Designs on all my cameras since they brought them out. �From my four 1DX's, *all my Sony mirrorless cameras (A7RII's, A6000) and to my current 1DX II's and a Polaroid camera, it's a the perfect way to get rid of that sometimes clunky camera strap. �None of the links have failed me to date. I went and bought these for my new *RX100V, but unfortunately the link rope is too think so can't be used, however it still doesn't stop me giving this product 5-stars none the less.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adapt the strap you already own Glad they sell just the anchor links without the expensive shoulder strap system. these really come in handy - I really don't like straps because I'm primarily video, but the other person I share my camera with always uses one for photography. This was a great compromise for our shared setup. My one complaint - keeping the anchor tabs on the camera while you use gimbals can bring in some unwanted noise since it basically turns the camera into a pellet drum. They are pretty easy to put on/take off though.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So simple and easy This is a simple and easy solution to the problem of connecting a camera strap to the camera and removing it all the time which I seem to be doing constantly. It's easy to attach and hold the camera securely. Works with a quick clip-in instead of fiddling with the straps all the time.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bigger WOULD be better in this case.... The concept of these jewels is awesome. Quick, easy removal of your camera from your neck. Unfortunately, they made the width of the slot opening for the strap only 3/4 wide. Being that narrow, if you had a DSLR of any heft, the strap is going to feel like it wants to decapitate you after awhile. If they had made it even just wider to 1 in would have been nice.... Other than that one fact, these are great.... Ill just have to come up with something to pad up the strap on the neck.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not for me! This is the first time I have done a negative review on a product purchased from B&H. I was excited about these. Someone went to a lot of trouble designing these clever devices. However, after installing to just one side on one of my bodies, I could see I was not going to like them. They are kind of a PITA to install (my opinion). I guess it's a love it or hate it kind of product. I am getting an RMA as soon as I finish this review.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Genius! I now got this to quickly switch both a hand strap and a neck strap to my Leica SL. Small and unobtrusive they just work. I have the links attached to a Tie Her Up wrist strap and also switch to an Angelo Pelle neck strap as needed... or not, if I want to leave the camera on a tripod. The anchors seem sturdy enough and like the fact they have a wear indicator in them. Love them. Great design and execution.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Keeping the Camera Strap At Bay If you're like me, the camera strap is useful but frequently annoying. Once you place the camera into the tripod head, what do you do with the strap? Does it just flap around, contributing to tripod instability or does it just get in the way, being a general bother? Now I don't have to deal with either of those situations. I just push down on the two anchor links and nothing interferes with my camera setup. So how do these work? They're pretty simple to setup. You thread your camera strap on each end through the plastic plates. Next you attach the cords of two links to each eyelet of your camera. Lastly, you pop the links into the plates. Voila`! I use a Canon Rebel T5 and this setup holds my camera with no problem. The only issue I've found is that as I'm hiking, the plastic plates bang against the camera body. Otherwise, it's very good at what it does. The instructions are clear and the packaging is very well done.
