I've got a 1927 no-hole arch-top TB-4 conversion with a two piece flange and I'm searching for a strap that will actually work. A lot of the straps on the market have 3/4 inch pieces at either end that are designed to connect to a hook with a Chicago screw. Problem is, even with a low profile head there is not enough room for that piece to slip through. They'll work fine on my one piece flange banjos.
I use a a Huber strap on my ‘27 no-hole, and it fits fine. Very sturdy, no Chicago screws, but it is not adjustable (right length for me). Check it out on Huber website. Good hunting!
I have Lakota Craddle Straps on all my banjos and some are TPF construction. All fit fine and no kooks, but they do use Chicago screws.

I was hoping not to have to do this. I'm not totally sure I have a low profile head on the banjo at the moment. The notch in the tension hoop is well below the fingerboard so I have ordered a low profile head and see if it makes a difference in the available space.
