Default Lifting strap length

My lifting straps are of typical length. After wrapped around my wrist there is about an extra 6 or 7 inches left to wrap around the bar... useless?

some people like wrapping twice for pulls, but otherwise, yes, length beyond what you need to wrap is useless except to make it easier to get the wrap started
