Customer Question
My Minox C chain...

My Minox C chain is fastened to the leather case. I want it fastened to the camera. Will it unscrew?

Technician's Assistant: What's the exact make and model of the camera? And can you guesstimate how old it is?

I've had it (like new) at least 30 years. Beyond that I don't know. I have a small one exactly same but smaller about 2.5" and the chain is fixed to the bottom of the camera. I'm afaid to start twisting or attempting to unscrew the one attached to the case if it belongs there but I want one fastened to the camera

Technician's Assistant: What happened right before this popped up? What troubleshooting have you tried?

I gently tried to unscrew the connection from the case but didn't want to use tools if it is supposed to stay there. The chain is removable with a -like a jewelry clip then is is on an eyelet fastened to the case. Inside is what looks like a bolt of some kind holding a shiny round knob-tiny that appears it could be easily inserted in the end of the camera if taken out?

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Camera Expert to know before I connect you?

Otherwise, where can I obtain a chain to fasten to the camera? The only ID is "C"
