How to thread a Crumpler shoulder strap

I love my Crumpler bag and have used it on my many foreign trips to carry my laptop, clothes and cables etc. Nearly a year ago though I un-threaded the bag’s shoulder strap, for a reason I have since forgotten, and was never again able to work out how to re-thread it.

A couple of days ago I was followed on Twitter by CrumplerUK for no apparent reason. I thought this might be an opportunity to get an answer to my strap threading problem and so tweeted asking if someone could help.

I got a very prompt direct message back with a verbal description of how to thread a Crumpler bag strap but didn’t manage to make head nor tail of it when I tried to apply it to my bag.

Well, today Crumpler posted a series of photos on Flickr that clearly explain how to thread the strap and I now have my bag back in its original condition!

I guess you could call this a Crumpler Cluetrain Moment!

  1. Not bad considering you didn’t even spell their company name properly 🙂 (according to that screenshot anyway)I guess it shows that they’re actually reading their feed rather than using some twitter CRM type tool.Crumpler are from my home town (Melbourne Australia) so I’m glad to see them doing well!


  2. Thank you so much about your post (and pics from Crumpler).I also un-threaded the bag's shoulder strap and didn't know how to re-thread it again.


  3. Thank you for this post, I had a similar problem. Its all fixed now after lying in a cupboard for 2 years! Thanks again


  4. Thank you for this post! I was trying to thread my “vintage” crumpler today! This has been very helpful !


  5. And you have come to the rescue again. I found a brand new bag at the local resale shop for $5!!! But the strap was not right and I didn’t know how to fix it. Thank you
