Instructions

    Attaching the Strap

  1. 1

    Remove the strap from the plastic bag. Make sure you have the three pieces of the strap. They include the strap, and two small, hollow rectangular pieces.

  2. 2

    Look at the camera and locate the two metal brackets. They are on both sides at the top if you are looking at the back of the camera. These are the brackets that the ends of the strap will pass through.

  3. 3

    Pick up strap and stretch it out to its full length. Turn it over so that the words "Nikon COOLPIX" are not visible.

  4. 4

    Find the sliding plastic piece that is already on the strap. Make a loop in the strap by pulling some of the strap through the siding piece. Look at Nikon's website for an example, if needed.

  5. 5

    Hold the right end of the strap, making sure the words are still not visible. Take one of the small, hollow rectangular pieces and slide it onto the right end of the strap.

  6. 6

    Take the right end of the strap and insert it into the left side bracket of the camera. Make sure to insert the end of the strap into the bottom of the bracket and pull it up through.

  7. 7

    Take the loose end of the strap that you have pulled through the bracket and push it through the small, hollow rectangular piece.

  8. 8

    Look at the sliding plastic piece that came already attached to the strap and find the two openings.

  9. 9

    Push the end of the strap through the right-side opening, and pull it up through the left-side opening. Pull it tight to make sure it all went through the sliding piece.

  10. 10

    Close the loop you made earlier by pulling on the strap. The strap is now securely attached to the left side of the camera.

  11. 11

    Pick up the left side of the strap and pull it around to the right side of the camera. Make sure the words "Nikon COOLPIX" are still not visible.

  12. 12

    Follow the same instructions as above to attach the left end of the strap to the right side of the camera. The only difference is when you are pushing the end of the strap through the openings on the sliding plastic piece, push the strap through the left side, and pull it up through the right side.

Tips and warnings

  • To adjust the length of the strap around your neck, move the plastic sliding piece closer or further away from the end of the strap. You can also adjust it by using more or less of the end of the strap when pulling it through the sliding plastic piece.
