      What's not to like? You get a quality set of strap loks that allow you to snap your strap on and off easily BUT when connected is very secure. Item worth having to protect your guitar from dropping while playing. Solid construction, quality plating, easy installation. I have them on all 11 of my guitars, my bass. Go the extra money and get a set and protect your guitar investment.
      Features are a swivel style straplok that attaches securely to where you removed your old strap mount. The Dunlops feature a slightly larger screw so that you securely get a bite on the wood, they go a bit deeper as well to ensure more contacts for safe and secure attachement. Then you attach a collar with the push-in post through the strap (this could take a bit of doing or even trimming the leather to allow the clamp collar to snap into it's groove. So you push the post through the strap enough to expose the clamp ring, drop a matching finish washer over the post, and slide the C clamp securely over the push in post. All that remains is to push in the pin, which retracts the small ball bearings enound to allow the post to slide into the strap lock on the guitar, release the push in pin and the balls extend out and secure the post deep inside the strap lock. It cannot be pulled out, in fact, you'd risk perhaps yanking the strap lock out of the guitar body first. Best of all, they swivel 180 degrees so you have complete freedom of motion.
      Solid quality, nice finishes, heavy plating. Best of all is a good screw phillips head that won't strip out as you're driving it into the guitar blocks. Hint: if it gets too tight and you still haven't secured the strap lock end to the guitar, compressing that little piece of felt that was on the guitar, you may want to remove the screw, and with a much tinier drill bit than the screw, drill out the hole so that the screw isn't trying to drill a new hole, You'll still get a nice secure fit. What happens if you mess up and strip the screw hole? Grab a couple of toothpicks, I like the pointy rounded ones, snap them in half and slide both halves into the stripped screw hold small end first. You may even want to add a drop of Tight-Bond wood glue for insurance. The toothpicks are now wedged into the oversized hole when the screw mashes them up against the holes oversized walls. The screws will bite the toothpicks, glue will make it all secure. Let it rest overnight before attaching the strap loks.
      Hey, you spent a lot of MONEY, scrimped, saved, toiled, and slaved to buy your new guitar. To protect it, you want the security a good set of straploks will give you. Cheap insurance to keep from dropping your pride and joy.

      These strap locks are horrible. They look rediculous because they stick out an extra inch from the body, and that causes added stress to the screw. (which explains why it comes with extra long screws. B.T.W you have to drill your guitar to accommodate the longer screws) If I play unplugged,they also produce a "Rattling Buzz" when I play lower notes.

          I have had these on all my guitars and basses for years. Never once dropped a guitar because the strap came off.

          If i could change one thing about the design, it would be to make it closer to the guitar body. It sticks out to far, as others have noted in their reviews.

          Also, sometimes they need a little lube so they detach smoothly.

            Comments about Dunlop Dual-Design Straplok System:

            I have purchased several of these strap lock systems for my guitars and basses. I love them. The come in a variety of finishes, they're easy to install, and they NEVER allow the strap to come off the strap pin. I have two straps that I'd like to use for all my guitars and basses. However, every time I buy a guitar or bass, I have to buy the entire strap lock system when all I really need is the pin (and screw) that attaches to the guitar or bass. The entire system is not expensive, I know, but it would be nice to be able to purchase just the part I need.

                I have these on all my guitars and on my good straps. They're quick and easy to use and never let go as long as you engage them properly (which is easy to do). They are standard equipment on Carvin guitars for a good reason.

                Also, any other standard strap will fit on your guitar, so you're not always tied to a strap with the straploks.

                  I've been using these strap-locks on my bass guitars for years. I think I got my first set sometime in the early 1990's. I have them installed on all my basses now and after 20+ years they have never failed. They are easy to install, all you need is a screwdriver. Anyone who says they have trouble installing them probably is not doing it right. I've never had any problems with them at all.

                        I'm not happy that I had to re-drill the holes in my guitar to use this product. It also sticks out from the body in an awkward way. Honestly, try a different strap lock.

                          The overall quality is there, but the screws are lacking. The locks operate as expected and are quite nice. The metal that the screws are made from its soft and doors nit hold up well during installation. I actually had to go into my shop and make a new screw for one of the buttons since they are not a standard head shape. Once they were installed, I was happy with the performance though.
