Can you post an image of the actual attachment on the bins, please ? Your description is a little vague.

Thanks for that - must admit I have never seen an attachment of that nature before. Unfortunately, the suggestion made by @SharkyCA does not appear to fit, and I have (as I am sure you have yourself) had no luck with on-line searches for anything even approaching your requirements. I wonder, is there sufficient of the original strap left to consider splicing the end fitments to a new strap ? Also, have you tried Ricoh / Pentax spares - even if they don't have it in stock, they may be able to suggest a supplier. I did consider suggesting a work-around of a cable tie with a D-ring on it, around the lens barrel, to attach another style of strap, but from the pictures it seems there is insufficient space to do this, and it would not aesthetically enhance the binoculars !

Good luck with this.
