Goldtone Banjitar GT-750 strap

Subject: Goldtone Banjitar GT-750 strap

Hi, all. I don't want to appear stupid, but I just got a Goldtone GT-750 banjitar. It's beautiful and plays wonderfully...however, I have no clue where or how to add a strap to it. It doesn't seem to have the usual "metal clasp" that a banjo has, and I just can't seem to figure this out. I've even tried navigating the Goldtone website but can't seem to find it there. Any thoughts, help or suggestions would be appreciated!

Have a strap button put in the heel and fasten it with that. You could also tie a boot lace around the headstock, but I prefer the heel button.

I have a Dean that had banjo clasps but I didn't like them because the banjo felt unbalanced. I put a strap button at the back of the resonator and one on the heel of the neck. Much better!
