    Hi Jerry, you can buy banjo straps with plastic quick release hooks which clip on to the tension hooks. I haven't got an image for you but Google will fix that. I intend to get one for my B/U.

    Steam bending wood is a very old, tried and tested technique. Which is why it has been around so long. Good on you, take the road less travelled.
