Still a newbie - 15 months "in" class. Determined, with your help, that any hiking strap is legal. Even one that has a beer holder. Today installed two grommets on Stern-End of of hiking strap. Any experience, suggestions on removing Bow-End of hiking strap and installing Bow-End of new hiking strap? Yes, I have a stainless steel plate fortress the Bow-End, but must first remove two Phillips head screws to remove Bow-End of existing strap. Being sure to keep backing blocks in place. But there are no grommets or other attachment holes in bow end of strap. Help?
