What should I google to find the strap from the picture? It looks like a screw is used to tension the strap, which is exactly what I need. I've already spent some time trying to find a manufacturer who could supply these, yet unsuccessfully and I would appreciate your help!

Thanks!

I would go to a saddlemaker as they are good with leather, but a barrel maker may be a possibility, however there are few around now.

However, the parts may need sourcing but as a basic idea it is just a threaded rod and a nut - shaped etc so as to not damage the leather.

The mechanism that tensions the strap looks like maybe a draw latch, though it's a little hard to tell.

Some examples of this mechanism: https://www.mcmaster.com/products/draw-latches/
