Strap Mount Rings

Anyone know where to buy new strap rings for my K-5? Mine are cutting my straps up. One is bent very bad and keeps coming loose. I figure I would get new ones and file them down to remove the burs.

Thanks
Jack

You might also try a good hardware store (the old fashioned kind) and look for a heavier gauge split ring.

Just to add, these split rings can be found in small sizes.

I put my OEM strap on some small S-rings to attach to the triangular split rings. I don't use the strap frequently, though the option for a quick change is convenient.
