X strap for filling up

I have seen reference to an X strap to take the place of the bag when filling up. Seems like a bit of trouble.......
Other bags have a cross strap to hold the head stem strap up.

I found it. It had dropped out when I leant the wheel against a step ladder.
It was sitting on the bottom rung.
