      OVERVIEW

      A better way to secure your strap.

      The Dunlop Straplok System is designed with the artist in mind. 360° groove-and-ball design allows the unit to rotate without catching. The strap retainers are easy to install and operate. The case-hardened steel skin guarantees long life. The same strap can be used with several guitars as the strap button is interchangeable. Release-tested up to 800 lbs. of pull; it won't come loose. Complete set (2 units for instrument and strap) adapts to instrument by replacing existing strap pins and screws with special Straplok System brand buttons and screws. 2 strap attachments are included.

        I've got a set of these on 1 guitar, and 2 basses. I've been using them for at least 5 years.

        The only caveat I have is take your time with the install on the guitar body, just so that you don't leave it looking sloppy or hurt your finish, and take your time assembling the locks on the strap as if you're too rough, I could see bending a piece.

        In the time I've had them, I haven't had a single failure this includes countless practices and days with multiple gigs. I just need to buy more so that all my guitars have them.

        The ONLY drawback, if you can consider it that, is changing the locks onto different straps if you like to change straps often. I tend to find a strap that feels right with the guitar and stick with it, so this isn't really a concern for me.

        there are better LOOKING strap locks, there are certainly more expensive strap locks. but for the price and the reliability, you really can't beat these.

        Yeah... as I said above:The device itself is great. It fit real snuggly on my strap and the buttoning action worked great. Installing it on my guitar is where the issue came in. The screws they gave stripped immediately. I used a screwdriver and within maybe 3 turns, the screws had absolutely no grooves left. It was like they were made out of butter. So... now I have 2 half screwed in strap locks on my guitar, and I'm in Afghanistan, so it's not like I can run to home depot and get replacements. They'll have to just stick out like sore thumbs and rattle until I get back to the states and figure out a way to remove them.

                Excellent straplok system. I still give it a 5 star. The only thing is the top part of my strap is thicker than the bottom. So the washer does not fit under the clip, but found out the clip fits and it will not slide off from the clip. I am very happy with the purchase and will purchase another if needed.

                I was looking for something that would give me some security for my instrument.... not drop it when the strap comes loose. AND, I wanted something that was not gawdy and difficult to install and use. This is the real ticket, as the rep I ordered it from was totally accurate in recommending this one. Can't go wrong for the money and quality!

                  This strap lock is simple, yet secure. The circlip is a little difficult to remove, but that is what makes it secure ... no threaded nut to work loose. I have used other brands, but will probably stick with these, as they work well and are priced right. My only complaint is that, for my application, the screws were too long and I had to grind off about 1/8th inch to make them fit. Otherwise, I would have given them five stars.

                  Comments about Dunlop Original StrapLok System:

                  I have a Fender strat and a Gibson ES 335. I purchased 2 sets to protect my investments. I was very disappointed that the screws were too long for either guitar. I really shouldn't have to go to a hardware store to replace the part that basically holds everything together.

                  I can tell that this set will work wonderfully, after I make the needed purchase of new screws.

                  Here is an idea Dunlop... 1) research the different screw lengths used buy different manufacturers of guitars 2) supply more than one size screw in a set.

                  The addition of a couple extra screws of different lengths would be minuscule in cost and would make for happier customers and better ratings on your product, which would help sell more straplok sets.

                    I bought a pair and put them on my Jackson dinky2l ... When I screwed them into my guitar, one of the screws stripped almost right away, and the other one goes loose every two or three days, that's annoying
                    Putting the lock on the strap is a pain... I hope you have a piece of metal to push on the last piece, and forget about taking it off the strap, once it's on, it's on unless you want to hurt yourself then be my guest... These were poorly made, I expected better from Dunlop
