Can Virtuix please comment on the Omni boom 'hook' where the Oculus Rift is meant to be hung? My understanding is that the Oculus Rift or Vive should be hung with the straps under the display. This is because if you otherwise hang the unit from the straps, it will put consistent resistance against the head mounting tension system. This being said, if you use the hook which seems to come with the boom, as shown in the product image, this could trigger the display sensor and leave the Oculus Rift turned on.

Instead, it would seem that this hook should be more of a double hook, sort of like a guitar hook, as shown below. thoughts?

    I hang the HMD by putting the back head-strap over the hook, and haven't noticed any wear resulting from this.

    Do you also drape something over the hmd to avoid any dust , sunlight, or particles getting on the lenses?

    @flamaest yes, I do that sometimes.

    I hang mine by the headstrap as well (VIVE). I do have a black velvet piece of fabric that I put over the face mask area of the headset.
