    i dun hav any pic, but here goes...

    item & tool list:

    1. water hose fasteners (2x for strap)
    2. plyester strap (at least 50cm)
    3. elastic cord or strap (i used elastic cord)
    4. cara-beana (2x)(sorry dunno spell correct or not)
    5. triangle strap loops (2x)
    6. spanner (1x)
    7. pliers (1x)

    steps (summarised):

    1. u'll need 2 length of straps 2 b fastened on d water hose fasteners, but leave some spare
    4 later.
    2. make sure 2 place d triangle strap loops ard d straps b4 u fix them on d tripod legs w/ d
    water hose fasteners. look at any shoulder bag 4 referance.
    3a. if u use strap w/ hooks den jus hook it up lo. hahaa....
    if u use elastic cord like me den u'll need 2 form a loop w/ d hook shape ends (i assume
    they all hav wired hooks at ends- not botak ends )
    3b. this is where u'll use d carabeanas 2 fasten t d triangle stap loops. i prefer w/ carabeana so nx time 1 2 change d elastic cord easier.

    pointers:
    1. d spare strap is acts as a buffer between d water hose fasteners & d tripod legs. its
    suppose 2 act as a grip. a cut-2-size rubber strip work betta if u hav.
    2. if u got basic sewing skills its best 2 sew d triangle strap loops w/ d strap. tis way d d
    triangle strap loops wont dangle any-o-how.
    3. best 2 use rust-free water hose fasteners if possible. i bought different brands jus 2 make
    QC.

    sorry i m not too gd w/ instructions, but i hope it helps...

    I see, I ever DIY it, it becos last time only manfotto have strap, the rest are selling bags, I find eastgear one cheap and good, well only use for my 055 tripod, not for my other heavy tripod.

    the strap is long enough for the tripod to be slung over the shoulder?

    I think so. Unless you mean you fully extended the tripod.
