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.

        Comments about Ernie Ball Super Locks:

        I've been a bassist for about 21 years, this is the worst possible design. Just buy Schaller, they can't fail. Ernie ball uses a spring to push on microscopic ball bearings. The spring will fail, or the ball bearings will wear against the strap button, either way your instrument will hit the floor, snapping the neck. Schaller uses a 2 failsafe methods. First the lock slots around the strap button, second a post goes through the lock, down into the strap button preventing any movement. I bought them for my first Ernie Ball Musicman StingRay & simply refuse to install them, it's such a pathetic design. I'm just going to buy more Schaller strap locks

          Comments about Ernie Ball Super Locks:

          I have used other strap locks and didn't think they were easily unlocked as these. I use them now exclusively on all my straps. I know the standard complaint about thick straps, but all brands are the same. Just use an exacto knife to cut a little strap thickness away and you're home free.
