People are finding that sterilizing used masks and dealing with masks in general come with a common problem: Strap breakage. The materials are not designed for prolong or rough use. Christopher Van posts a neat solution on Twitter:

I’ve been developing a solution within @PanFabBoston for strap brackets on duck bill masks allowing them to be used longer with sterilization even if the straps break (they will). I fondly call them: Duck Boots! Rough draft, easy to 3D print and holds well. #MedTwitter #Covid_19
