Step 3: Glue it Up - Staple it Down
1. Thread the thin strapping through the camera's lugs.
2. Since I'm using gorilla glue, I dampen the ends of the thin strapping with a wet rag. The polyurethane glue foams in the presence of moisture and fills gaps. In the fabric of the strapping, it flows through the fibers and cures to a stong bond. Epoxy is also a good choice, however if you use epoxy, you do not have to dampen the strapping.
3. Apply Gorilla glue sparingly as it will foam as it cures.
4. Use the stapler to staple through the two thicknesses of strapping. Two or three staples should be fine.
5. While the glue is still uncured, squish them flat with a pair of pliers. The staples are naturally 3-D, but you want to make them as flat as possible.
6. Allow the glue to cure (it does not really dry). If it foams excessively, you can cut off the excess with a razor knife.
7. After curing, you can touch up glue with a black magic marker if you want the color to match (the gorilla glue is tan when cured).
