In order to produce the most comfortable hand straps for its underwater camera housings, Nauticam uses a unique design. The Nauticam Hand Strap is adjustable for length and has a neoprene cover for comfort. While quite different from traditional hand straps, they are very comfortable and easy to install.

To install the handstrap you will need two hex key wrenches; one is 2.5mm and the other is 1.5mm.
|Locate the Hand Strap Top Attachment Point
on the Right Side of the Housing.
Apply a Small Drop of Silicone Grease or Anti-seize Compound to Each Screw. Use the 2.5mm Hex Key Wrench to Partially Install One Screw.
|Install the Second Screw. Then Tighten Both Screws.||The Top of the Hand Strap in Position.|

Now we will install the bottom part of the hand strap.
Before you begin, inspect your housing; does it look like this one? If you do not see the socket head of the retaining bolt, it is likely a different style. Scroll down to see photos of that mount style.
For this part, you will use the 1.5 mm hex key wrench.
|Insert Hex Key Wrench Into the Retaining Bolt.||Unscrew the Retaining Bolt Until it is Clear of the Receiving Cavity (The Receiving Cavity is Not Threaded).|
|Unscrew the Retaining Bolt Until it is Loose.||Place Bottom of Strap in Place and Push Retaining Bolt Through the Hand Strap Until it Enters the Receiving Cavity. If Necessary, Wiggle the Retaining Bolt Until it Enters the Receiving Cavity.|
|Screw the Retaining Bolt in.||The Bottom of the Hand Strap is Now Secure.|
If your Nauticam housing does not look like the above photographs:
|Some Nauticam Housings Have This Style of Bottom Mount.||It is necessary to Open the Housing Back to Access the Retaining Bolt.|
