OVERVIEW

Put on your guitar strap with security and ease.

Ernie Ball Super Locks feature a push-button, quick-release design to provide a safe, complete 360-degree secure connection that keeps your guitar or other instrument close at hand. Ernie Ball mechanically engineered these guitar strap locks to ensure ultimate instrument protection. Positive locking pins ensure that the locks will not release until the buttons are completely depressed. The contoured design prevents accidental release. All Ernie Ball Super Locks are casehardened and steel-plated, making for the most robust and rust-resistant strap lock on the market. Securely fastening buttons mean that Super Locks can accommodate straps without their own locking mechanisms as well.

First things first: absolutely fantastic set of locks! I got a set of these from my wife (then fiancee) 3 years back to put on my Ibanez 5-string bass, because stock strap buttons won't hold a strap for anything unless you play standing dead still.

Installation was pretty much effortless, though I had a little trouble getting the lock itself through holes in brand-new, somewhat-thick leather. Being somewhat-thick, the leather also didn't leave much thread surface for the nut to hang onto, especially with the washer in place. Eventually the nut & washer fell off of the top lock (the lock that attaches to the top horn on the instrument) as I was taking the strap off the bass & I wasn't able to find them. Luckily they weren't critical to the function of the straplock, and I've been rocking it without the nut & washer ever since, with no issues.

Honestly, the only thing the nuts & washers do with this particular set of locks is ensure they stay on the strap while it's unattached from the instrument. While it's attached to said instrument however, you'd have to take a hammer to the lock to break it off!

To wrap things up, I've used Schaller & Fender Style strap locks, & they didn't keep the strap on near as effective as these do. Won't buy anything else to do the job.

These strap locks are awful. First and foremost, you will have to re-drill the holes in your guitar to fit these. Even if the screws LOOK the same size, they will break when you try to screw them in and Ernie Ball will delete your facebook comments about it. Then, after only about a month with them on, the top one popped off while I was on stage. Luckily it was during the last song of our set and I could finish playing crouching down with the guitar on my knee. Not ideal. I tested it out after the show, and it seemed ok so I figured it was just a fluke. Wrong! Happened again at the next show, this time during a solo! I didn't have money to buy a replacement lock at the moment, and so it happened again and again and again in the studio. I finally got Schaller locks and not only are they usually a few bucks cheaper, but the design is 100 times better. They have a cup positioned underneath, so even if your lock disengages your guitar will not fall. I would highly recommend them. You also do not have to re-drill the hole to install them.

I truly feel that everyone else posting good reviews is either a plant by Ernie Ball or someone who has only had the locks for like a week.
The locking mechanism is flawed and wears out after a few months of normal use.
After the mechanism wears out, these are useless.
Twenty dollars to re-drill a hole in my guitar and have the strap fall off repeatedly for a few months.

Loved them until one of them broke

Comments about Ernie Ball Super Locks:

Ernie Ball seems like a good company but this product failed me.
Just got back from practice at my church where one of my 4 month old Super Locks broke.
The one lock just literally came apart while I was playing almost sending my Stratocaster to the floor. The problem wasn't that the lock wasn't tightened to the strap enough. The problem was that the housing around the lock literally separated. I pieced it back together but to no avail. These are way too unreliable to ever trust with my guitar again.

      Comments about Ernie Ball Super Locks:

      I bought this super locks for my les paul because i didnt want to take any chances of it falling off of the straps and getting scratched/damaged or whatever. So when i got them i put them on and had no problems. When today, 3 months later, i was putting my guitar on the stand when the bottom one just fell apart. I dont know what caused it but i know im not gonna buy anymore of these and waste my money.

                This are the best strap locks that you could find. Excelent design, quality. Ernie Ball only make the best things.

                I Think that the Strap Lock are almost the same like a hard Case. It is too important to protect you guitar. The case is security for carry and storage and the strap locks for perfomance. This product of Ernie Ball worth every cent that you pay. Hihgly recomended to protect your guitar, overall if you have a expensive guitar. I would not like let fall my Gibson Les Paul or my Vox SSC.

                  I have used these strap locks in the past and the quality is still above reproach. I mounted this one on the "Perfect" strap (the LM Products Cross & Treble Clef) I know it will keep my strap on my 58 Les Paul and the Les safe around my neck. What more could I ask for? Another one for my 65 Strat!

                  A very high quality strap lock. A bit pricey, but you get what you pay for. Why would you put cheap accessories on an expensive guitar?
                  One word of caution: Make sure the pin is positvely engaged into the center of the guitar mounted strap button whenever you attach your strap to your guitar. I always give a tug on each end of the strap just to make sure. That being said, this is a great product.

                    Can not use them since they do not fit the Gibson Flying V, the screws are too thin. I read that they do fit but no.
                    They look really nice, and I would be happy to use them, but they do not fit the holes that are in the new Gibson Flying V. The comments I read somewhere said they would but the screws are too thin.

                    Why can't someone make something that fits the guitars that exist?

                    This is my second or third try to get something that fits.
                    Looks fine, but can't use
                    Price OK

                    I have some Schaller Strap Locks that I bought locally for some of my other guitars, but the Ernies are much cooler. They stand the strap away from the body more because the lock goes into the little peg, rather than around it. The release is secure and solid, and they don't stick up above the strap like the release knobs on the Schallers. Overall, a much slicker style of Strap Lock.

                    I got a set of these to put on my Gibson Les Paul Traditional. I was able to put them on the guitar with no modifications. I read reviews of people using other brands of straplocks and having to do the toothpick trick or other tricks to mount the straplocks. I used the screw supplied by Ernie Ball for the heel mount and went to the hardware store for the one by the neck because the one supplied would have worked but it didn't have to be as long as it was. No problem now if I want to put it back original no oversized holes just take 1 minute and put factory strap mounts back on. The locks themselves hold tight and will not come loose unless you intentionally press the tabs to release them. Great product.

                    This strap lock has the best of the other two models in it. The relablity of the Dunlops, while being small like the schaller's. No sharp edges to cut anything, and no parts hanging off to worry about getting caught on something and pulling the strap out. The button system on these is very well done. Highly recommended, buy them, you wont be disappointed.

                    I got these for my Ibanez RG2570 and the screws on it are too small for the screw holes that are already in the guitar. Now I have to return them. The quality and buttons and all that seem to be of a very good quality though. They are a bit pricey as well. I think Ernie Ball should make strap locks in several different sizes of screw because I really wanted this product to work.

                    I had bought 2 sets of these straplocks in nickel because two of my guitars were buttonless. I installed them on my Ibanez S520EX and my Schecter C-1+. I'm not one for buying junk, so I did my research. I heard of problems with Dunlops coming right off and schallers look funny to me. These locks are great in that they look really nice, feel solid, and they are safe. I also like that you are not limited to using your lock and are able to slip on any strap of your choosing. Also helpful if you forget your strap at home and your buddy has one.I also followed the video on youtube for installation.If you are like me and want to protect your investment with a quality product, then buy these EB's, you shouldnt be disappointed.
