Thank you everyone.
That's interesting, I have an 8x20 model of about the same period, and things look exactly alike. The strange thing to me is that I had never given this any thought. As I usually adjust strap lengths which I had obviously never felt a need for in this case.

To me, it looks like they simply melted the ends in there to fix them. Some controlled heat probably would not have affected the optics?

On my model, the orientation of the lugs is not sideways but instead oriented towards the person wearing the binoculars.
