Mafac made a strap that wrapped around the handlebar instead of having to slide it on from the end. In the day, that strap was something carried by most race mechanics, because you could replace a broken strap without untaping and retaping the handlebars. Works for Campy as well as Mafac.

At least, that's what I recall doing at least once. I won't tell. Heck, I won't look.
