Default Levy Strap Extension Piece

I have a Levy leather strap it is Model #MSS75. I'd like to get an extension piece so I don't have to use the shoe strings to attach it to the head stock. I know, just put a strap button on the heel but I don't want to do that.

I've sent Levy a number of e-mails but never got any response. I know that they make extra long versions of their straps but don't know if they just include a longer adjustable strap or make the overall main portion of the straps longer.

Any ideas as to where I might purchase the leather extension?

Planet Waves Quick Release System. I started useing this because I hated useing the shoe string as well (it got to be a pain everytime I wanted to take the strap off.

Default Strap Extension

I believe it is made by Martin - a leather strap that wraps around the headstock and then fastens to the strap. I would imagine that you could go to a leather shop and find a small piece of leather and make one yourself. Good luck in your search.

Yep. The leather is easy; it's the little plastic knob that you really need. You can so the same thing with a sex bolt, but it's not as efficient.

What I'm looking for is a Strap Adjustment Tail that is longer than the one that came with the strap. I've e-mailed Levy several times but never got any response. If they were in the states I'd just call but they are in Canada.

I did find another company Franklin Cinch that makes similar straps and have sent them an e-mail.
