I've used a nail (or something similar) on a couple of occasions to loosed up the spring bar openings on straps, and it's worked well for me.

Is it a rubber strap?

I just pushed the rubber ends onto the spring bar against the edge of table. A little force for rubber to slide over the bar.
But, a little spit lube is a good idea too. :D


Good luck.
Dave.

I put a little silicon (gasket grease) on the tip of the spring bar before inserting, it also sticks around inside the strap hole for later when I want to remove the spring bar. If you wanted something a little more expensive than spit ;)

I should add, if you do decide to jimmy something into the spring bar opening to loosen it up a bit, exercise some caution so that you don't slip and do damage to the strap. O0
