        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.

        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.

              Comments about Dunlop Dual-Design Straplok System:

              I've been playing for 40 years and recently bought my 1st 2 sets of strap locks. My straps don't grip like they used to. Now I wonder why I didn't get these a long time ago. Really makes strap use and storage and guitar changes much quicker and simpler. I still keep a hand on my guitars when not playing but the added security of the lock mechanism is a great insurance policy. Super product!

Chrome screws on black strap locks, come on Dunlop! I guess i'll have to track down some black oxide screws. A+ otherwise.

                          I have these on all my instruments, they're cheap insurance for your much more expensive axes. The mechanism is simple, based on ball bearings sandwiched between two sliding sleeves, similar to a quick release on an air or water hose, and just as secure. These have lasted a decade on my oldest axe with no signs of any problem whatsoever.

                          One advantage of these over Schallers is that the buttons are beefy on their own, so you can put any other strap on them and trust them to stay put unless you really thrash around on stage. By the same token, you can also use these with the leather straps that have two rear buttonholes, and because the lock goes in the button instead of over it, with the locking mechanism in the bottom buttonhole you can even curl the end of the strap around and and lock the strap in place anyway.

                          The only real disadvantage of the design is no backup mechanism. Should the locking mechanism fail for any reason, the strap's coming out. Schallers have the U-shaped slot for the strap button, so even if the latch fails completely the strap's still on the button.

                          One tip; some straps have thin leather ends, and on these the washers holding the locking mechanism on the strap can rattle. I don't like that, so I take the inner washer and an old cereal box, trace out the washer a few times, then cut them out of the cardboard as spacers to take up the gap and quiet the rattle.
