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.

Comments about Dunlop Dual-Design Straplok System:

Can't complain with these. I got my first set for my Epiphone some 10 years ago, under heavy use and abuse they still work like a charm and keep my guitar safe. When I got my Gibson this was the first purchase I made.

Great straplock.

Comments about Dunlop Dual-Design Straplok System:

I am using this set with my suede Taylor strap. Strap peices attach to holes of strap and are there firmly. Like the straplocks and will buy again when I get any new solidbodies.
I like the ball bearing design that moves freely and yet stays strapped securely. These are the first straplocks I have ever owned so I have nothing to make a comparison against. Easy to install. Just follow the instructions and they were easy to install. Don't forget a little soap on the end of the screw to act as a lubricant.
Very high quality components and seems very durable. Fit and finish are quality. I like 'em.
Fantastico.

      I have used strap locs for decades now. Installs in minutes with pliers and a screw driver. Excellent quality. Works as advertised. Never have your guitar strap pop loose again! These things will save your guitar.

        Comments about Dunlop Dual-Design Straplok System:

        I have always been weary of putting new screws into any instrument. This didn't end up being a problem for me because the supplied screws were the exact same size as the ones that were already in my Dean bass. The installation was pretty straightforward, just be careful that you don't use a screwdriver with too wide of a shaft. It would have been nice if the instructions had suggested easier tools for getting on the retaining clip.

        There are a couple issues I have encountered. I have found that straplocks extend out just enough to stop my guitar and bass from fitting in the case. Of course that's easily remedied by taking of the strap (which is best to do anyways before packing up), but it's just one more step that can be annoying if you're in a hurry to pack up or get started. Also, I've found that they sometimes rattle a bit when used on my acoustic bass. At some point I'll go in and add some additional padding to remedy the looseness of the fittings.

        Comments about Dunlop Dual-Design Straplok System:

        I have been involved with guitars since the mid-1960,s. During that time, I've tried different straplock systems. Found this one many years ago. It was instant love and has withstood the time test. I have these on acoustics, electrics and my basses with a bunch of different straps setup with this system so they are all interchangeable with the various instruments.
        The dual-design is good insurance in case you ever find yourself in a pinch needing to use a strap without the system as the guitar buttons will accommodate a standard strap as well as one with the straplocks. Have never had one of these to fail but be prepared to enlarge the strap end holes a bit because many are too small to fit the strap button end correctly. Overall, a great product.

        The best

        from Melbourne FL

        Comments about Dunlop Dual-Design Straplok System:

        Don't waste time on others. Get these.
        These are the best. If you have tried the Schaller (or Fender clones) these are superior. The Schallers have multiple problems.
        If you use a thick leather strap, the Schallers are nearly impossible to get the strap, washer and nut over a thick strap. It limits your ability to torque down the nut on the strap. Next thing you are looking for the nut on the carpet floor of your studio or gig.....
        Oh yes, and if you can't find that Schaller nut, your strap lock system is worthless. Go down to Lowe's, Home Depot and/or Ace Hardware to try and find replacement nuts for the Schaller system. You won't find them....
        The Dunlop's are great. They use a C-pin to lock, can accommodate thicker guitar straps and there isn't hardware that can come un-screwed on the strap. If you forget your strap and have to borrow one that doesn't have Dunlop locks on it, the buttons on the guitar are flanged and wide enough to keep a backup strap in place and get you through your gig. Don't waste time on others...get the Dunlop's.
        Very good. Strong. Good design. Well thought.

        Not the best looking accesory for your guitar but they work great! The price point is very good for the quality of the materials used!
        They work... They don't look all that good but hey... They work.
        For the amount of work that go into developing something like this the cost is surprisingly low.
