DIY 3 Dollar 10 Second Speed Strap

Seen those SpeedStraps by Honl Photo and you really think they're cool, but you don't want to dish out upwards of $20 for a bit of velcro. Well if you have 3 Dollars and 10 seconds, you can have you're very own, no-sew speedstrap for all your accesories.

First you're going to need to make a trip to your local supermarket and buy some 'Velcro Brand Design Straps' (the small size 8inches by 1/2inch) these are like those little cable ties.

Next you're going to need is a fat rubber band, you know how theres wider ones, and then thin ones, get a wide one that will be big enough to wrap around your flash.

Now put your rubber band around your flash head align your two velcro straps and strap them together, so to tighten it you pull one end throu the loop of the other.

I hope the video can illustrate that more clearly for you.

This is a neat guide but why would you record your tutorial with music in the background? It's difficult to hear what you're saying.

Can't hear a thing for the music! Too bad, was curious to see the tutorial.
