Our take on the BlackRapid FastenR FR-3

BlackRapid's standard tripod screw fastener, the FastenR FR-3, comes included with most of their straps. But if you need to make a quick change between two or more camera bodies while in the field, you'll be glad you bought a few more. One quick move from your strap's ConnectR carabiner disconnects or connects a FastenR-equipped camera body in seconds, leaving you ready to shoot within moments of the changeover.

Product Highlights:

  • looped fastener screw fits all standard 1/4"-20 tripod screw mounts
  • stainless steel, finished in black nickel
  • rubber washer provides extra security by making a strong, gripping seal
  • designed to interface with BlackRapid ConnectR carabiner
  • screw length: .8cm
  • rubber washer depth: .3cm
  • warranty: 1 year
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

Hands-on research

Product Research


Overview: The BlackRapid FastenR (or FR-3) is a screw-in fastener for connecting your camera to a BlackRapid R-strap. It has a 1/4-20 thread and screws into the standard tripod socket on the bottom of your camera. The rubber washer helps to make the connection tight, and prevents over-tightening. The FastenR is made of solid stainless-steel construction with a black nickel finish. The top portion of the FastenR is a loop that enables you to clip the camera onto the strap's locking connector.

Note: The FastenR is included as standard issue with each BlackRapid R-Strap.
