It was time for me to replace the leather comfort band on my
OptiVISOR. (The cushioning became so compacted that I started getting
headaches.) The problem I found was that the supply houses only
offered the entire headband, which costs $18. I managed to find what
I was looking for at Widget Supply
for only $5. After ordering it, I contacted Rio requesting they put
it in their line.
I could not find one at all! So I went a slightly different route. I
went and got some small snaps, a piece of thin leather and used the
old one as a pattern. Normally I am the type of person who says “Why
spend $18 when I can buy $68 in tools and make it myself” but this
time the cost was about the$5.
