The beauty of the Barton strap is the notch in the end allows you to engage the keeper and keep the strap in place. They design their straps so you can engage that keeper when on the last hole so it saves it ’missing’ the keeper, as mentioned by @complication This always provides some of the strap protruding through.

Its a bit cooler today so I have on the second one today.
