First off, I wasn't sure whether this product would be a standard (round) strap button, or the elliptical kind, or one of each, both of which are shown in the product photos, but it turned out to be two of the elliptical sort. It comes with the two strap buttons, four screws (two large, two medium), and two rubber grommets to protect the guitar's finish. Installation on my acoustic guitar (without a previous strap button) was a breeze; I watched a couple YouTube videos first, and it worked out great. I'm not sure I really like the elliptical shape, but it's working fine so far, and I suppose it would hold the strap better than a round button if you make sure to orient it properly. Just a note about installation: make sure, when you drill the hole, that you drill it into solid wood (the heel of the guitar is best), and that the drill bit you use is the right size, or else you'll either crack the neck, or the screw will fall out.
No installation instructions to speak of were included; would have rated a 10 if they had been.
Seems sort of expensive for a couple little pieces of metal...

I put these on a Gibson Les Paul Junior. Because the screws didn't fit the holes exactly right, it took a bit of doing to get the pins to fit snug enough against the guitar body so that they didn't move or spin when putting a strap on or off. Once on and tight enough to not move, they seem to work OK by don't inspire the same confidence as proper strap locks. Nice idea but the execution of this product is a little off. The pins themselves aren't quite large or long enough for thicker straps. Marginally bettre than the original Les Paul end pins but won't be installing them on any other guitars.

    Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Elliptical End Pin Strap Button:

    After I bought my first set of straplocks about 10 years ago, I thought, "geez, what a lot of hassle for such a minor improvement." THEN, I noted that my bass, already long-scale, no longer fit comfortably in its case. Finally, the extra 1 1/2" that the straplocks added to the overall length of the instrument made the axe somehow less comfortable to wear.

    Enter the D'Addario Planet Waves Elliptical End Pin Strap Button - simple, elegant Ned Steinberger design that keeps your strap on without all that hooey. AND, they look cool, too. And at a fraction of the price of straplocks. There are a few situations where they don't work well, but very few. They're great for electrics, acoustics and just about anything that doesn't have an end-pin jack.

        Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Elliptical End Pin Strap Button:

        This will be the fifth time I've purchased a set of these for a guitar (just to clarify, for 5 different guitars... NOT because I had to replace any). They work good as long as you have decent ends & holes on your strap. I've found that lower quality straps with thin material for the ends will start to tear through, but a good heavy leather works quite nicely. Just set them so the wide part is perpendicular to where the slit in your strap hole sits as you wear your guitar and they keep it in place wonderfully... not a single "drop" (and I play out regularly).

        I like them because they're not as bulky or complicated as strap locks. I have a strap for every guitar that is rarely removed, though... so if you're someone who uses one strap and moves it from guitar to guitar, locks might be a better way for you to go as I think the constant on-and-off will eventually cause the "pointed" ends to start tearing at your holes.

            I install these on all of my acoustic guitars. They are the next best thing to actual strap locks. The pointed ends stick out on either side of the strap after you put it on and keep it securely in place. I have never had a single issue with a strap coming off using these pins. I highly recommend them.

              Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Elliptical End Pin Strap Button:

              There are good bang for the buck. My straps never slip off, and they are WAY nicer looking than standard buttons. The gold finish really looks sweet, against the Sapphire blue of my guitar. I have one set on my electric and one on my acoustic. Less expensive than strap locks, and pretty much does the same thing. Great product.

                  Great option over standard round end pins. Elliptical shape reduces the chance of dropping your guitar. Much less hardware than locking strap pins at a slightly higher risk of failure. Love these on a couple of my acoustic guitars. Washers seemed cheap compared to felt, but probably reduce the chance of the pins rotating into a less desirable direction.

                  These are a great alternative to strap-locks... you can use any strap and they work just as effectively!
                  And, because they're metal they won't split or break (unlike some plastic versions that I've used).

                          I bought a set of these years ago, and never had a strap come loose. Now I am getting a set for a new guitar.
                          I saw some complaints about these being loose,and turning around, but I think they are intended to turn around. They will always stay at a right angle to the notch in the strap. I think if one gets them on too tight there would be a chance of the button lining up with the slot, and coming off from the guitar; At least mine has been on loose for many years without a problem, and I will be putting my new ones on loose.
                          I have had straps come off a number of times with the old round buttons when they get upside down, and pull from the opposite direction. With this design if strap goes upside down on the button, the button will turn at a right angle and button will lay in the crease side ways to the slot.
