\\Anything will work but if you want screen accurate than you need 2 tan Enfield slings that are spliced together with a light tan or white thread.
The Enfield slings have the fat rounded edges.
It's also used to hold the side canister on the leather back pack.
I got mine on Amazon.
Thanks so much for the explanation! I see how it works. The hi rez pic is awesome. I had that shot smaller but couldn't get in close enough to see what was going on. I found lobster clasps on Amazon, too, I just didn't know if there was something more specific to get. I thought they were silver, but in this shot, it looks like they are brass, so I found some gold ones and will try to figure out a way to tarnish them.I bought Lobster clips on Amazon. (I may have it bookmarked on my other computer.)
The metal end pieces are removed.
The buckle is functional.
Loop one end around the center bar, that strap is shorter than the "front" strap and the extra piece is long enough for using on the side of the back pack.
The open end is then sewn to the longer "front" strap that comes over the front and through the buckle and down to the bottom of the staff.
This pick is the best reference showing all the stitching on it.

You can actually see the splice at the shoulder.
Could i have the filesI saw a couple of folks were asking about the sellfy 3d printable staff, thought I'd throw my pics up of the one I printed from those files. It's a great value, $10 for the files and a bit of filament if you have the printer! Also full disclosure, I am not the creator of those files, so I'm not trying to make a sell ha I am just very happy with how they turned out on mine!
