“We’re updating our Anchors, the little round connectors that come with Peak Design straps. We’re doing this because the previous version of our Anchors were, in rare instances, wearing out more quickly than they should. If you own the previous version of our Anchors (found in most Peak Design straps purchased after August 2017) we’ll send you updated Anchors for free. To see if you qualify for free replacements, take our Anchor Update Survey….”
I am still waiting for a dozen V4 Anchors to be sent as replacements for V1 and V3 Anchors that I have purchased over the years either standalone or as part of other Peak Design products, so I cannot personally vouch for the strength and width of the cord in Anchor V4 and whether it will easily slide into all the many and various D-rings, eyelets, mounts, triangles, lugs, strap slots and assorted holes and gaps into which they need to go.
I have accumulated many more V2 Anchors too as I have found that Anchors have proven effective for use well beyond Peak Design’s intended purpose of connecting Peak Design camera straps to cameras.
For example, do you have older or non-Peak Design camera bags or backpacks with conventional cordless zip pullers where your fingers slip off when zipping up in the cold or the rain?
Attach a Peak Design Anchor to the zip fastener and problem solved.
Need to attach those oversized collections of keys to every bag you own to make bag last-minute swapping easier and faster?
Attach an Anchor to your key ring, snap the Anchor on to a Peak Design key tether and Anchor Link threaded through a loop on your bag and buy enough Peak Design Everyday Key Tethers to have one on every bag.
Time to do a last minute bag swap? Detach your key ring’s Anchor from the Anchor Link on your current bag’s Key Tether then attach it to the Key Tether on your other bag.
