      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.

      The only reason why these didn't get 5 stars on everything, is because they can only handle light guitars. I've tried them on Strats and SGs and some Teles, and they're fine, absolutely flawless. They hold your guitar right in place and will never come off unless you want them to. However, if you have a Les Paul (like me) or another heavier guitar, keep shopping. So far these Straploks have repeatedly dropped my Les Paul, leading to some nasty chips and scratches on my most prized instrument. I've had them on my Les Paul for roughly 6 months, and in the first few days the top Straplok on my guitar must've broken off 15 times. Not really a big deal because most of the time I can catch the guitar because my hand is on the neck, and I was too lazy to get new ones (big mistake). Then a few months followed without much incident, a drop here or there, nothing big. Again, I didn't buy new locks, big mistake. Then yesterday, in the course of literally 5 minutes, the top buttom broke off 4 times, and one of the times caused my Les Paul to come crashing down on top of one of my pedals. And just to clear things up, I don't jump around when I play, I don't dance or do any swinging movements with my guitar...I stand right in place, and the locks still fall off. Save your money, these things are complete garbage. Don't make the mistake I did. I ruined my best instrument by putting these things on.

            Quite simply, these work. I installed them on two of my basses so I can easily switch my favorite strap from one to the other (detuned) while playing out.
            I just wish they sold the part that goes into the guitar separately. (Hint to Dunlop)

            Comments about Dunlop Dual-Design Straplok System:

            Purchased these because I have used them before. They work great but be advised that his hardware is not necessarily simple remove and replace. Be careful to use the recommened hole size and depth. Existing hole too small - possible split wood, broken screw or both. Existing hole too big - the srew will probably strip out wood and dislodge. If this came as a standard warning on the installation instructions I would give 5 stars. I also give Dunlop a -1 star for not making the receiver part of the hardware available as a separate piece for sale when I don't need the whole set. I would like to use the same strap for a couple of my guitars without having to buy the whole set of hardware. Why buy something you don't need?

                  Great product. I buy these for every guitar i own. They saved me way too many times. before these locks, the straps would fall off during rehearsals and gigs and was horrible. i cant believe how i lived before i got these. These are a cheap insurance policy so that the axe WILL NOT slip from its strap. DEFINITELY BUY IF YOU LOVE YOUR GUITARS!!!

                    The best possible straplock out there. I've used other brands and switched to these a long time ago. The other brands used to spin around ... when they did, you ran the risk of the guitar coming off which is completely unacceptable. The Dunlop design is as good as it gets.

                    Well, I have 3 guitars, and it didn't fit in any of them. Actually, it did with one of them, but just one side. It actually works well, but i would recommend to find a way to try it on your guitar before buying, not to have the same problem I had.

                      These are easy to use and are cheap insurance. Before installing a set on my Rickenbacker, I was practicing while standing on a tile floor. One end of the strap slipped off the guitar. A lucky mid-air grab saved it from crashing to the floor. After that I installed the Dunlap Straploks on all my guitars. They snap securely into place, and I am now comfortable letting go of my guitars while standing.
