Scissor strap issue?

Postby DGH » Sun Jul 10, 2016 11:42 pm

I've just taken delivery of my first ever Rollei - a 1959-60 Model B with 3.5 Tessar taking ones, as described, Serial # in the 1480000 range. I also bought a 'new, unused' scissor strap from an EBay seller

( ... EBIDX%3AIT)

but for the life of me can't see how it fits, even following the pictures on their site. The scissors will (just) fit inside the rectangular aperture but not the rest of the metal clip and nor will it fit under the upper portion of the lug to mount on the thinner metal pole of the attachment.

Is this a known issue, model specific, or just me being a muppet again?! Thanks in advance for any possible help or advice.

The 3,5B doesn't take scissor clips but a different,older type of clips.
