Seal unit with stanard sealer to prevent dirt entering unit
When you say the very back of the strap, where do you mean as there isn't a visible strap?

I had thought of this before but wasn't sure where to drill it without doing damage. Also a hole is left where water will get in, but a rubber bung of some sort could be found to fit I suppose.
