I like this strap a lot, the grafix on it look good, I bought it from a local store and mine has red dragons on the strap that go well with my guitar. The concept of this strap it great, but like others said before me, it's not completely thought out like it could have been.First problem- I have a Stratocaster and the plastic part that is attached to the strap isn't covered in rubber, and it began to mar my finish, but thankfully I noticed before I lost paint and made a cover out of flannel to keep that from happening, now it should be fine, but it's not as cool now that I have to check the flannel is protecting my axe.Second- I have no idea how the locking mechanism works nor the method used to hold the fabric of the strap in the locking mechanism, and it makes me nervous because I'll never know how well it's made until it breaks and I can see inside. Good ratchet design? Sturdy spikes biting into the fabric, or cheaply designed ones that might shear off?Manufacurers providing diagrams of their technology is always a plus... sometimes I wonder how well it will hold because of the bad reviews this strap has... thankfully I'm good at catching my axe from previous conventional straps failing on me.I do like this thing though, and not having to modify my guitar to accept different pin screws is great.

There seems to be a fine line between whether or not this strap is great, or sucks horribly. That may make no sense, but hear me out. For example, when you take a look at the cons of this strap:1)As much of a great idea as a locking system at the end of a strap was, it's completely unreliable. I find myself having to relock it over and over again throughout my playing. Of course, it depends on what kind of guitar you have. I have an Epiphone SG, so the strap button rests on the back of the guitar, right below the neck. This means that the release button on the strap is for the most part always resting aginst my hip, which may or may not put pressure on it and make it release. Of course, it also releases the lock on the tail end of my guitar, where nothing is ever pushing on it, really. Over the course of the time I've had it (6 months) it will release spontaneously for no reason at all, on both ends of the strap. 2) The part of the lock that rests against the body of my guitar is coated in a layer of rubber. This is so the plastic part of the lock doesn't scratch up my guitar, but after a while, the rubber coating has started to erode and wear down, leaving a ring of wierd residue on the back of my guitar where the strap rests. I'm not sure what the properties of the rubber are, but it could be a bad thing for the laquer of high value guitars.When you're looking at the pros:The ends of the strap are made of plastic, not vinyl or imitation leather. This means that it virtually won't break unless you try to break it. Sure, the ends come undone, but unless I'm jumping around, it won't fall out. It's like riding a bike and having the chain fall off. Of course you've lost control and the bike feels loose, but you're gonna keep rolling along for a while. As long as I've had the strap, it's never cracked, broken, or torn. Just malfunctioned. The webbing the strap is made of is strong; and won't break easily. Plus the Planet Waves logo is just a square of loose fabric stitched onto the strap parallel to the sides, leaving it loose down the middle. I usually stick an extra pick in there haha...Hope that helps.

I saw the strap and said, WOW what an amazing idea!. Which it is BUT its made horribly the plastic piece of mine broke right off rendering it useless. Also the one for the back straplock scratches your guitar unless you put something there to protect it. Overall its a good idea but could use some upgrades. I bought it, used it for a few months and it broke.
I have used all kinds of straps, and this is the best i've ever used. I used to use regular straps, but i was playing one night and it broke out of no where and broke my strat. Then i got the locking strap. this thing is sweet. ive had it for almost a year and i use it every day. i have put this thing thru hell and a half and it still works just as well as the day i got it. it hasn't broken on me once. I've tried the straplocks and the dimarzio straps and there no where near this. This is the only strap i'm using from now on.
A friend of mine has one that he uses with his les paul that has never come off. So I decided to get one for my bass cause my previous strap was coming off a few times. The only problems I have is the shoulder pad is pretty weak, but my bass is super light so I don't need. The other thing is the 'buckles' are fairly large but they have a nice rubber backing so you know they're not going to scratch your guitar. The only other problem, and this is probably just me, is the nylon is pretty thin, but that's probably cause I'm used to a tiny bit thicker strap. Overall it's a great strap, to bad the designs they have here are kinda lame, I just went with solid black, I don't need anything flashy.
It would be nice to know which design is which! The pictures should be labeled with their name!
Salesman at a music store convinced me that this strap was just as good as strap locks. Sorry, but this thing is pure crap. The PLASTIC strap locks (if you can call them that) broke on me at a gig the first night I used it. If you don't move alot then this might work, but if you get into playing live beware of this product.
i always wanted to spin my guitar on stage but i never had the right strap. all of a sudden one day a friend of mine gave it to me for free, so i took it home and tried it out. i've had this for about a year, on top of however long my friend had it, and it has not broken or let me down one bit. the last show i played, i spun my guitar and the crowd went crazy. all thanks to this bad boy right here. it's definately a good investment. i got it for free, but i'd pay the money in a heartbeat. if you like to have some fun on stage, buy this strap..
This strap is very comfortable. The straplocking system ensures that your guitar won't fall. The 3 inch wide movable pad allows max comfort, stability, and cusomization of position.
The locking strap sytem is great, and each lock has a nicely padded inside face to protect the finish on your guitar, these things can take the weight as well, and still allow you to MOVE! They seem to be very durable, and I've been using them on all of my guitars for over a year now with no problems
Overall, this is a great strap; its held my basses and I don't have to worry about them coming off and crashing to the ground (I'd kill someone if that happened)But there's one slight downside with these...the plastic hits my bass whenever I'm using it (every time I put it on) and I noticed a tiny dent...but not sure if it was already there because its an older bass.
I think I got stuck with the prototype model. The joint which connects the strap and the locking system, flips around and inturn twists the strap.
