Tried to search for the thread, but couldn't find it. I finally remembered to check my bag, and sure enough I had the strap stored along the back. At the top the strap was sticking from the glue just a bit....it left a little glue mark when I pulled it off, which buffed off . I could really see if I left this on how it could have damanaged the bag! So, thank you, thank you for the warning! tPF Rocks!
