    Hi Ian,
    Sounds like you found the solution you were looking for.
    Perhaps you could post some pictures of the finished article.
    I think that might be of some interest, certainly to me.

    Kind regards
    David

    Heat shrink tubing is the way to go; if you get the smallest diameter to fit then double up with next size if you want real durability.
    I've got it on my hand straps for + years now.

    Here is a quick snap of the tubing on my 1901 Photographie strap. It was very simple to fit - just slide it over the strap and put a hairdryer on it. I used some aluminium foil to shield the camera from the heat (just out of caution). I'm sure a neater finish is feasible but I'm happy with this.

    Nice one Ian.
    I have to admit the final result looks pretty sharp.
    Great to find a hack that actually works and doesn't cost the earth.
