Pentax SFXn/SF1n era Handstrap

The 1989 Pentax SFXn brochure shows a Handstrap F accessory. Does anyone know or have seen this?
The leaflet page is here:

Never seen a Pentax one but I have a generic make somewhere. I did not get on with it.

Yes I have one , it came with a battery grip style plastic add on at the bottom of the camera, similar to a battery grip, just no battery or connectors only a tripod screw to attach it. Very handy and comfortable, I can take a better picture tonight when I get home

take this instead: Clutch Camera Hand Strap | Peak Design Official Site
The quick-connecting and quick-adjusting is better than everything I found before.

One review suggests it does not fit the K1... I guess itís an older strap than 2016... and no availability information...

You can also get a cheap generic handgrip for a few dollars on eBay, similar to the Pentax one. Or do as I did and just get a band of leather (made for a handgrip, also from eBay) and two Peak Design Anchor clips that you simply attach to the leather, then you get an even simpler solution than the Peak Design one (the top attachment of their Clutch is ok, but slower than just using an Anchor Clip).

Always prefer neckstrap myself - leaves two hands free for a beer and a burger.

That's why the Capture Clip was invented That, plus a hand strap, has changed how I approach handling my camera.
