        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.

                Great idea and works well. Used it on my Epi Les Paul custom pro that the strap liked to come off of. The strap stays put now. Took all of a minute to put on. Used the original screw and washer.

                    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 bought a Epiphone Les Paul and was worried about the strap coming off of the stock strap buttons mainly the one by the neck. Saw these and thought I would give them a try. Was worried the screws would not be big enough but the stock screws actually fit and worked perfectly. The only negative thing I can say is the rubber washer that came with it is way to small but was able to use the felt washer from the stock one. Highly recommend.

                                          I have a nice Les Paul and the angle of the neck side of my strap makes it want to pop off, especially the way I play. Other strap locks have failed me. I use these and a Fender rubber washer. The neck side of the strap is never taken off and it seems to be very tight and safe. I'm still thinking of putting the strap button on the neck heel where it feels like it should be, in the first place.
