      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.

                    If you have a soft leather strap these strap locks will attach well and maintain the integrity of the leather for years without getting loose. Best way to keep using that leather strap without it wearing out ang poping off during playing. Protect your leather strap investment for the future. Prices are good so I bought another in black.

                      i've equipped every guitar I own with Dunlop strap locks. Consistent quality and easy to install. I put these on without the use of any tools. I've used Schaller locks but these rotate easier and don't snag up when I'm turning cartwheels on stage.

                        These are the best that I've used in years and years of playing. If you're a now and then player.....no problems. If you gig a LOT, the locking balls on the strap portion tend to dry out due to extended use. You can lube them with lock and door oil, Teflon, etc.. If they dry out, you might think you're locked in until your axe goes for a nose dive. The screws tend to be a little soft, so go slow with them. Still a very good product.
                        I play constantly and really beat up my gear due to fun overdose. The Straplok system does put up with a lot of punishment for a long time.

                            I've had a set of these on one of my guitars for about 5 years and they're still working perfectly.

                            I just got a new guitar and decided to get a set for that one as well.

                            The only "con" to this product I've experienced has more to do with the guitar than the straplocks. My new guitar used different sized screws for each of the strap buttons - so the Dunlop screw didn't fit the one at the base of the body.

                            However, I was able to use the original screw with the Dunlop pieces and it's working fine.

                            The option of a few different colors give you the ability to match the straplocks with different components of the guitar (such as chrome hardware, black pickups, etc)

                                Dunlops are the best, in my opinion. Very reliable and easy to install and use.

                                When I install a set of these, I use the existing button screws rather than the ones provided. Sometimes I need to shape the screw heads a little so that they fit in the button holes, but its easier than altering the original screw holes.

                                  After doing some basic research on various models of strap locks I chose these. Very easy to install and the connections are solid and sturdy - all you need is a drill, screwdriver and pliers. Unhooking is as easy as the press of a button. Guitars safe = happy me.

                                  It did not affect my guitars, but the new pins do protrude out more prominently than most stock buttons so make sure there is ample fitting room in your guitar case to accommodate. Highly recommend.
