    D-ring adapter for toothed-slide bags?

    I have 3 bags: an Ego and a Large Café Bag, which have Absolute straps that attach via toothed slides, and a Brain Cell, which uses D-rings. Sometimes when I just need a laptop, I slide the Brain Cell out (I love love love the Annex system by the way) and just carry it. The problem is that if I am in a hurry, I never have time to de-thread one of my Absolute straps from its bag, attach the snaphooks and slides, and clip it to the Brain Cell. I really wish that my Ego and Café Bag used D-rings as well... they seem so much more convenient when getting a strap on and off. If I could take off straps at will, I could easily carry just the Brain Cell, or easily carry the Café Bag with no strap when I am just carrying it like a handbag.

    I saw that previously, adapters were sold that modified the old toothed-slide ID to take a D-ring. You don't, by chance, have a similar small adapter that I could buy to affix to my bags so I could use the snaphooks everywhere? Thanks :)

    In any case this is me volunteering to beta test these if you try a batch out! Or do the ones you had in that post still work in the newer bags?

    I Agree

    I've recently purchased an Empire Builder, Ego and Brain Cell. It would be great if the same Absolute Strap could be easily swapped between the three products.

    Even a "no, we will never make these and you should superglue bent paperclips to the ends of the strap" would let me know that you have no plans to sell adapters like this ;) thanks
