They work perfectly; they do what they should do, and are durable.

Recently purchased as a gift for a family member who is a mechanic, super handy for quickly swapping keys. I also swear by these anchor links for my cameras, except they are ALSO amazing for everyday keychains :)

After loving them for my camera, I standardized all of my key rings and small tools to the PD Anchor Link system. My backpack, badge reel, and belt all get the black anchor plate; my keys, flashlight, USB drive, and Leatherman all get the loops. One handed, no look operation is great and I have confidence nothing is going to fall off while I am crawling around in data centers.

Solid, no worries

I tried other fastening devices before these and I was always checking them, feeling that they may let go at an inopportune moment. With these, I never worry about them breaking and letting my camera hit the ground. A quality made product. I have these Anchors on all my cameras. Great product!!!!

Got these to save an old Op/tech strap (turns out I should have bought a new one) - once I did the dental floss trick to get the anchors on the camera I realized that these little things are genius. Easy removal, and they help you do things with the camera w/out the strap getting in the way.

So easy to use

Very handy. At first I was worried about the links getting in the way of the memory cards (Sony a7R V), but it's not a problem.

The Peak Design anchor system is brilliant in its simplicity and sheer functionality. My new camera came with a cool neck strap. But how to attach this to the camera so as to be able to use the P.D wrist strap as well? Enter the AL-4 Anchor links. Just attach the big plastic bits to your neck strap (it becomes obvious when you've got them together) and then you can plug it into the anchor bosses. Brilliant!

Would these work with a Leica strap that has permanent metal rings on the strap?

It depends on how do you want to use it. Our Anchor links are best suited to be partnered with our straps because of the synergy between the anchors and the "links"

question

Are these V3 or V4 anchors?
Asked by: Maximiliano
We are still working through some stock on our straps that have V3's. These Anchor Links still might come with V3's, and if you do, they can always be replaced through our Anchor Update Program here: <a href= https://support.peakdesign.com/hc/en-us/articles/360000833866-2018-Anchor-Update target= _blank >https://support.peakdesign.com/hc/en-us/articles/360000833866-2018-Anchor-Update</a>
