    Band/strap keeper size for 5600/5700

    Hi all.

    Trying to find the exact size for the strap keeper on my 5735, and a 5035D that's on the way. The metal keepers seem to scratch up real easy, and since these are 35th anniversary releases, I would like to avoid messing them up.
    I believe they all use interchangeable straps, so a 5600 size keeper is the same size.

    I measured out the strap end at 18.8mm, so I'm thinking it's either a 19mm or a 20mm.
    Anybody know the exact spec size?

    TIA

    Just measured, my 5735d metal keeper, 20mm.
    It was actually 20.15mm so probably either 20 or 21mm would be fine.

    Hi, thanks for the reply.

    Yep, I got the same measurement on the metal keeper on my 5735D, but I am almost positive that the rubber keepers are smaller/more snug. I'm guessing they are either 19 or 20.
    The metal keepers have a looser fit, as you can twist and turn them when loaded. Annoying too, as they like to move around and get lopsided.

    Have the same 35th model. Rather than using a rubber keeper, cut a clear decal and protect the gold keeper. Its not really noticable if you cut it well. Done this on all my metal keepers.

    Thanks.
    That was one of the ideas I was mulling over, but in the end I think the metal keepers are just not as comfortable overall, they move around too much.

    Awesome, thanks!

    I actually have a GW 5000 being shipped to me as we speak, but I don't expect it to get here anytime soon, as it's coming from Japan.

    I ordered 3 keepers Via Aliexpress for $3.04 a piece. They look like the stock design. (Got them in black, of course).

    In case anyone is interested:

    Could totally understand the change if its uncomfortable. It does move some but not enough to annoy me . Changed all rubber keeper to metal for all my Gs. Made it look premium
