When I got my new camera, I decided to pass down my old camera to Drama King. He loves taking photos but I quickly noticed the wrist strap was way too big for his tiny wrist and knew I’d have to figure something out or he’d drop it. As per the norm, I was called away to tend to childhood needs -change the Wii game- when I saw Little T slipping on the Wii remote and sliding up the cord lock.
I knew if I rummaged around the house I would find an unused cord lock on a backpack, jacket, purse or any number of items that contain cord locks in our home. I found one on an old purse in the donation box and untied the cord and removed the cord lock. I crossed my fingers and grabbed the camera to test out my solution.
It worked fantastically. That is until a certain child took the wrist strap off his wrist and set the camera on top of a step stool on their school desk.
