Been wrestling and trying out different beacons straps. I'm curious what other people are using. The hole to thread a strap through is pretty small. Originally I wanted to use some ring cause I could easily connect and disconnect the lanyard, so I thought just a key ring, but it was too tight. Then I tried a mini carabiner, but it was awkward to thread in. So I had these replacement tugs for backpack, I attached that to a lanyard but still not in love with it and I'm a little worried it might get ripped off while I'm riding with the beacon around my neck. Show me what you got!

Found an old iPhone 4/5 running strap that I had stored away. I put a safety pin on one side and may sew it for a more suitable modification. It now fits on my wrist. Now I will put the beacon in a waterproof bag (seal a meal) and test the functionality for windsurfing.

My Lanyards fit through the provision on the Beacon. I purchased a spring ($2.79) from a hardware store which made it just a bit better.
I do printing.. so $12 a lanyard whatever you want printed on it or on.. LOL

I threaded as large of a nylon strap as would fit in that tiny slot then sewed it together with some strong waxed thread. Gives me 2 choices, I can wrap the strap around something and thread the beacon through the strap or attach a carabiner to the strap and clip it on to something which is what I usually do.

I always have the beacon attached to something when I'm using it, too easy to loose offroad on a motorcycle.
