Rift S Headstrap alternative without knob at the back?

Hi guys,
I wonder if there is any alternative to the Rift S's halo that does not have than tightening knob at the back of the head.
Problem is, due to the knob I cannot sit comfortably in my racing chair.

    I don't know of an alternative solution, but the halo band is available as an accessory. I guess if you had the skills you could engineer some modifications and still have the original as a back up :)

    I looked and I didn't find anything. If you have a 3D printer you could use an Oculus GO head strap. It's all cloth so it would seem to work for you. But again you would need to design and 3D print some adapters for it to work.
