Share

In this video, I tell you how to use the official wrist strap with your Meta Quest 3 and turn it into an overhand or knuckle strap for your Quest 3 controllers.

As we all wait for third-party makers to develop and produce knuckle straps for your shiny new Quest 3, I bring you a few methods on how to turn your existing Quest 3 wrist strap into a knuckle strap. It is a simple task that only seconds to complete. I guide you through each step on how to do it, it’s so simple, that you wish you did it sooner!

There are 4 methods in total in this video. The first only really works for smaller hand sizes, whilst methods 2 and 3 will cater for large hands. Method 4 is adjustable and will work for all hand sizes.

Method #1: Small Hand Strap

  1. Take the existing wrist strap and push the plastic slider/toggle to the base of the controller.
  2. Whilst holding the controller loop the wrist strap over the back of your hand and then over the top of the controller.
  3. With your other hand, take the plastic slider/toggle and slide it up to the controller to hold the strap in place.

Method #2: Large Hand Strap

  1. Take the existing wrist strap and push the plastic slider/toggle towards the controller to create a little loop at the end.
  2. Take a small-sized hair band or elastic band and pass the end through the small loop on the wrist strap.
  3. Take the lower end of the hair band, then feed it through, back on itself and pull it to tighten onto itself, around the wrist strap.
  4. Now loop the attached hair band over the top of the controller.

Method #3: Double Loop Strap

  1. Take the existing wrist strap and push the plastic slider/toggle towards the controller to create a little loop at the end.
  2. Take a small-sized hair band or elastic band and pass the end through the small loop on the wrist strap.
  3. Take the lower and top ends of the hair band and hold them together.
  4. Still holding them together, pass them over the top of the controller

Method #4: Adjustable Strap

  1. Take the existing wrist strap and push the plastic slider/toggle towards the controller to create a little loop at the end.
  2. Tape a small-sized hair band or elastic band and pass the end of the wrist strap through it.
  3. Holding the lower portion of the hair band with your thumb, open the bigger portion of the wrist strap to widen it enough to reach through and pull the top end of the hair band through.
  4. Pull the top to tighten the hair band onto the wrist strap.
  5. Take the top of the hair band loop, and pass it through the small loop at the end of the wrist strap and bend over the end of the wrist strap loop over and onto itself.
  6. Take the hair band and place it over the top of the head of the controller. Make sure the bent-over loop of the wrist strap end is facing upwards, away from the controller.
  7. Slide in your hand and position the strap onto the back of your hand.
  8. To tighten, grab the small loop we bent backwards and pull it down and away from the controller, across the back of your hand to tighten it.
