Hey all! I have here a couple pianos that have some badly worn/torn straps that secure the compartment door shut on the stage piano lid.
Anyone have any ideas on how to replace them? What material are they? Perhaps I can buy some raw vinyl and cut some strips?

OR I've never loved this design, anyone have a better latch solution that looks decent and will do the job?

Thanks so much for the input, strange request, I know, but this one has me stumped...
