I'm sure there is a thread somewhere here about this, but I actually can't find one.

I'm having a hell of a time getting the two little loop straps through my 50D's strap hooks. ESPECIALLY the right side hook as it gives less room to work with due to that little lip above the hook.

Anyone have any advice or pics? I've tried flattening the two sides of one loop to try to fit through the hook and no luck. I've also tried flattening it out without double up the strap but also no fit (I think that was understandable lol).

Anyone? I can't believe there aren't a million threads about this...it seems near impossible to me to get them through (esp. right side).
And this doesn't help much lol http://www.procamerage​ar.com/pics/loop.gif (external link)

Just use a pair of tweezers and gently pull it through...

Wow got it...the only possible way to get it through the loop around that lip on the right-side strap (near the memory card door), was to wrap a piece of scotch tape around the loop and pull it through using the tape. Then I had to use tweezers/my teeth to pull the tape/loop through. Otherwise there was no way to get the thick loops through that hook. Phew!

See, check out how little room you have to initially stick the loop through the top side..crazy! So hard to get it to go down and then turn to the side into the hook!
Hopefully the tape thing can give someone else an idea someday if they have trouble.
