    I wouldn't be lifting items, like a helmet I presume, with that strap no.

    My advice would be to display the helmet in such a way that the strap is able to hang freely. One of my helmets has a similair split in the strap.

    Best of luck,

    I was just about to say the same thing. I also have a helmet with a split in the strap.

    The strap has red or dry rot. There is nothing that can be done to correct or cure it. No slaves, oils or leather preparations will change it. As others have stated do not put any further stress on it at all for any reason.
