Velcro headstrap of Rift S issue

Hi

The velcro headstrap of my Rift S, does not hold very good any longer. I was looking for a replacement and Oculus does sell the strap for 70 USD. This makes no sense for a very simple velcro tape. Way too expensive.

Are there any alternatives that work?

    About a year then ?
    Does the warranty cover it ?
    I got mine in January and stupidly bought it thinking it was mine, but its turned out to be the the families,   With all the head sizes of which mine is naturally the largest - [our] velcro is starting to deteriorate too.
    I bought myself a Quest, and hide it out of the way :lol:   Its mine dam it !!

    Just buy a roll of double sided Velcro cable tape from somewhere like Amazon or your local hardware store.  You can get various sized/colours and it's not very expensive.  Very handy stuff to have around for other uses as well imho.

    I did. Currently due to COVID shut down, they are not allowed by Swiss Gov to process warranty requests ;)
