I'd like to point out that sealing the end is different than melting and compressing the last inch. Doing the second part will help threading in a cam well beyond just dealing the end. This is exactly why many commercially made straps do this. DRE actually has a piece of equipment that does just this.
So....just melting the cut end of the strap yields different results than melting and compressing the end.
