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.

Elliptical pin strap buttons

By Steven Clelland

from oklahoma

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

I bought these for my schecter csh1 guitar . It already has gold hardware. aaaaaaai didn,t want to put the bigger bulky strap locks on it. these are very good looking and football shaped. you can use a regular strap and because of the shape it makes it easy to put the strap on. but believe me your strap is not going to come off, untill you are ready to remove it. I am very pleased with them and they are beautiful. and 7.99 is a good price.

Ask me a question

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

No instrutions so youtube how to put them on. I don't like rubber washers so buy some felt ones if you want to.
I would give it a ten but no instrutions and it showed 4 picture for the button strap , round and elliptical so I wasnt sure what would be shipped. I bought the round one for my other guitar and thay work and look good to.
Look good and keep the straps on snug. Why a rubber washer and not felt ? No big deal.
I'm useing them on an acoustic guitar thats very light and I don't swing them around my neck so they should last a life time.

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

I really like them. If you are looking to replace or add some strap buttons to something I definately think that these are an upgrade compared to the round ones. Their shape seems to be a lot more secure than the round buttons. They look nice and add an element of uniqueness. The only thing I don't like is the rubber washer. They suck and you may want to find or order some other washers but its not a big enough deal for me to lower my rating.
Strap buttons.
Good so far.
Good value.

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

I like the looks as well as the feature of the elliptical points on two sides . Can't say too much more but they do make it easyer to strap on the guitar and knowing it's not easy to drop the guitar when in use.
I used the elliptical end pin strap buttons on three of my accostic guitars and they were a good match to my tunners. They look great and best of all they are much easyer to slap on the strap because of its point or Elliptical shape. Cant waint to buy more for a few more guitars I have kicking around. Five tumbs up on these buttons.
Can't beat the price well worth it for the gold and chrome used on these buttons.

      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 haven't used this for very long, but it seems to be a little easier to get the strap on and off because of the elliptical design. An improvement over the round strap buttons for sure. I may need to tighten it more to keep it from rotating but that is a minor complaint because even the narrow side is the same diameter as a round button. It should keep your strap more secure.

                    I'm not a fan of strap locks. Some don't "lock" the way they should and still slip out. Some stick out an inch or more on either end. These are just elongated strap buttons that keep a firm hold close to the guitar body. I put mine at about a 45° angle to compensate for the strap angle when playing. I'll buy more for all of my guitars!

                        Larger than normal buttons. Got a couple sets of chrome for my Gibson Les Paul & my SG. The orig strap buttons that come on both of those guitars never have impressed me. Before I got these I'd gone back and forth with different buttons a few times,so the holes had to be filled in a bit to make sure the screws fit snugly. Since the strap comes behind the guitar, I turned the knobs slightly make the strap slot opposite the pointed button ends. I hate dropping nice guitars due to straps or buttons coming off...

                        This pins look nice, are of a very good quality, and they do what they say. If you're not a "wild child" flinging your axe around your neck, these do the job well without having to revert to clunky strap locks. Works perfect on the slippy Les Paul top pin. Try it, you like it.

                          I put this on my start. Up until that point I had used schiller strap locks. these are really all you need on most electric or acoustic guitars. they keep the strap on in all kinds of situations and are the first types of end-pins I think about when someone asks me about keeping their straps on their guitars.

                          I would not, however, use these on a low-slung Les Paul (think low-slung Slash or Jimmy Page), and they might also not be great for a low slung Telecaster, unless the tele endpin is at a slight downward-facing angle. In those cases, use a strap long for the front of the guitar and one of these ellipticals for the back of the guitar--in order to make it easier to take the strap off or untangle it.

                              This is a good high quality strap button, I like it better than the old standard design.

                                  Only trick to installing these is tight enough not to spin, but not too tight as to crack material.

                                  I haven't used them yet, but it's exactly what I wanted.

                                        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.

                                            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.
