Attaching Strap to Pentax LX?

I just added a Pentax LX to my family of Pentax film bodies. I'm a bit puzzled though, about attaching a strap. there seem to be no strap lugs on this body.

Any light in my darkness would be appreciated.

There is a special attachment that locks on the lug.
This might give you an idea of what I am talking about:

The lug allows attachment of the special LX neckstrap or optional finger grip (LX Grip A or B) for your right hand.
KEH is a good source for the originals, or eBay.
