Sony HX400V Lens Cover with Strap

I have a Sony HX400V camera with a 55mm lens cover. I want a replacement lens that includes a strap built in because the one that comes with my camera doesn't have a strap. As a result I have to put the cap in my pocket every time I take a photo. Where can I get a Sony lens cap that includes a strap/lanyard that would work for my camera. I have looked online and am having trouble locating one.

Re: Sony HX400V Lens Cover with Strap

I don't believe Sony makes anything like that, but there are thrid party alternatives: https://www.adorama.com/l/Lenses/Lens-Accessories/Lens-Caps-and-Lens-Hoods/Lens-Cap-Holders

 

A real quick DIY solution might be to take a lanyard that often comes with USB flash drives, loop it around the shoulder strap of the HX400V (or through the shoulder strap hook) and superglue the other end to the lens cap.
