A Möbius strip consisting of a single Conveyor Belt Unit (CBU) twisted and locked with itself by both ends. This is the cleanest representation of a Möbius strip I have designed so far since it uses just a single sheet and the connection is much neater than in the model based on CLU unit.

In order to make the connection possible after twisting the band, I used the trapezoidal variant of the unit, in which the ends are slanted in opposite directions rather than the standard variant which looks like a parallelogram. Instead of using a single unit folded from a long strip, I could have built the band from multiple units, in which case only a single unit at the connection point would need to be modified.
