Dude they are certainly a *****. Make life easy on yourself and break out the file.
What I do, and it works super fast and very effectively, is take a sharp drill bit just smaller than the hole in the pedal and walk it around a bit with your drill. It wallows it out just enough to get the strap through and also keeps it from looking all ****ty.
Use needle nose pliers too, but don't ruin your straps. Take your time, make sure they're straight before you pull them on through.
