Camera Lens Cap Holder Lets You Snap Lens Caps onto Straps

We’ve seen quite a few solutions for storing lens caps when they’re not in use, ranging from velcro attachments to small lens cap pouches. The Camera Lens Cap Holder is a new patent-pending holder by mechanical engineer Mark Stevenson that lets you attach your lens caps to your strap in the way they’re designed to be attached — they simply snap onto it in the same way they snap onto lenses. Stevenson is currently funding the project through Kickstarter, and a $15 contribution will pre-order you one of these holders.

    “Each cap holder can hold three or four different lens cap sizes.  One
    side holds two sizes, the opposite side holds up to two other sizes.
     When threaded onto a neck strap, only one size may be used at a time.”

    That’s not a bad little feature. Though if I am going from a lens with a 52mm thread to a 77mm thread it might prove a bit combersome to flip the strap over, though part of the strap will be covering the area where the lens cap will go.

    I use hufa holders (  They’re really neat, and you’re not just limited to straps.  I have it clipped on the inside of my bag, so the cap never wonders and i don’t look like i’m wearing a nikon badge (:

    Solution to a problem that doesn’t exist, sorry.

    It looks pretty cool and despite some comments if does meet a need. I used to take a piece of Velcro and glue one side to the strap and the other side to the cap. Not elegant but it worked.

    I have to agree with some of the other commenters. I nice solution to a problem that doesn’t exist. I buy “lens leashes” from eBay for $1.

    If you buy a solution to a problem that doesn’t exist, wouldn’t that make you a bit of a sucker? Obviously this problem does exist. Otherwise you wouldn’t buy the strap! I’ve probably tried a dozen different ways to keep from losing my caps. This one is the only one that I’ve seen that looks like it is hassle free, straightforward, and no-nonsense (unlike your strap … just another piece of swinging debris that flops out in front of the lens or the sensor and gums up an otherwise good shot!).

    Velcro-type stuff is another really good solution to hanging on to lens caps.  If you don’t want to cut your own, LensCapTrap ( has kits of die-cut parts ready to go.  You don’t even have to un-thread your camera strap to put the holder on your strap.

    Full disclosure….I make the LensCapTrap so you’ve got to take that into account…  :-)
