Default need a new strap for my trophy cam

guys where can I get a new trees strap for a trail cam? I busted one on a forked tree recently. I called Moultrie for a different issue, and they had one for 8 dollars, but the shipping was 15! I bagged that. Looking for a 3 foot strap that's 3/4" wide. Any suggestions?

It would probably be cheaper and easier to just buy a Camo Ratchet Strap and use it instead?

1 inch webbing straps with buckle on Google a lot comes up.
Also I was thinking of using a old army style web belt with buckle would work pretty good.

I would at the minimum go with a python strap but all my cameras are in lock boxes.
I have a bag full of straps that haven't ever been used.

Check out any sporting goods store, in the camping section. They are used for tying up sleeping bags etc. Just cut to length if required and put a dab of crazy glue etc. or seal with a match on the cut end to prevent the strap from fraying. One can also find buckles similar to what trail cameras use in the same area.
