These things are great! I was using some Grolsch Rubber Gaskets before and although they work fine, they're too soft and stretchy to really keep my guitar strap locked in the pins. But these Fender Strap Blocks are made of harder/stiffer rubber so they offer more security in regards to preventing my straps from popping out of the pins. They're a little difficult to install but that's the point, they shouldn't come off easily as well. The pack comes with two sets of Strap Blocks ( Red & Black ) for about the same price as a 12 pack of Guitar Picks. They work great unless you're planning on doing some stupid aerial acrobatics ala early EVH with your guitar( that's why Eddie has some industrial Hook & Eye on his setup ), your axe is pretty secured. AND, the best thing above all is that NO MODIFICATIONS are needed to be done on your guitar! Just put your straps on the pins and pop these babies on, that's it! I see more and more Pro's using these Strap Blocks for live gigs. It just makes sense. Would you want to start messing with your three grand PRS or Gibson just to put a bulky, ugly and expensive strap lock on there? No way! Yeah, they offer a great amount of security but I think they're a little over kill in my opinion. Get some of these and give 'em a try!

This product is easy to use and functions properly IF and ONLY IF it is on a certain style of strap button. When jumping around of simply tilting the guitar the blocks tend to work their way off the button, this caused me to drop my Thunderbird bass as well as my Telecaster (of all guitars). (They seem to work fine on my Schecter but only because the buttons are flat bottom facing the strap and not on a 45* angle)

ALSO these are not a long term solution, after about a month or so the rubber became stiff and cracked and eventually made me have to trash them.

If your looking for strap locks these are NOT A SUBSTITUTE do yourself a favor and spend some extra cash on some actual locks.

      These work fine, but unless you want red or like the Fender name on it, you can just go to a hardware store and get rubber washers for half the price.

      Comments about Fender Strap Blocks (4-Pack):

      An inexpensive substitute for strap locks. I have strap locks on all my solidbody basses but was leary of trying to install them on my acoustic basses. These solved the problem. They're a little hard to work over large strap buttons but after instalation the strap is locked on.

        Comments about Fender Strap Blocks (4-Pack):

        These are great! Made of rubber, they stretch over your strap button and strap to hold it securely in place. No chance of your strap coming off. I have used the dunlop-style two piece locks before, and have had them come apart and fall off. Not gonna happen with these! Genius idea. Everyone should use these.

                    I keep these in case I need one, but mostly use them to help someone else whose strap is slipping off due to wear, like the kids at church. They work well and are invaluable in a pinch.

                      I bought me a regular guitar strap with leather ends and I only need one of these rubber blocks in the front screw to make the strap secure and stop it from slipping out. Pretty amazing gadget.

                      Comments about Fender Strap Blocks (4-Pack):

                      I've used those straps in an acoustic guitar and an electric bass. In both cases, they were quite hard to insert into the pin, which is an *excellent* element. The fact that they were as hard to insert means that they are unlikely to ever let the strap go. I feel much more comfortable playing with a strap on now and can simply focus on the music.

                      The only thing that I didn't like with this product was the packaging. All 4 straps arrive in a small nylon case which is very finicky; the opening slit dissolved after I pressed lightly between my thumb and my index. This meant that I dropped one of the red straps and I was searching for it for some minutes on my rug. Furthermore, the small nylon case itself arrived in a much bigger paper parcel which was clearly a waste of paper.

                              This is a very simple solution for having a strap-lock set-up.

                              It worked for my guitar, and I'm very glad; the leather end to my strap had repeatedly come loose from the metal pin, allowing my guitar to drop-- scary! Putting the rubber ring on was somewhat tricky, but not too hard; so glad that it is there, keeping the strap on.

                                I like this instead of strap locks. I like keeping a guitar strap on each guitar and just leaving these strap blocks on. It secures the strap plenty well. I don't like the look of the red ones but it does not really matter much.

                                  Didn't want to drill holes for strap locks in an expensive vintage instrument. These are very close to perfect.

                                  Wish I'd found these a long time ago - I use them on all my guitars now - I haven't had them long so time will tell whether they'll stretch after repeated use

                                    The strap on my new LP Jr was popping off so I grabbed a bag of these at GC. Put one on with a bit of work. The next one had a weak seam or something. They are made of a dense rubber and apparently have a weak line down the middle where they can split apart. Not sure why there is a problem. It can't be that hard to manufacture a little round bit of plastic- essentially a 10 cent washer with a fender logo.

                                    I beleive these would work great if they were a little more strechy. one of mine tore in less than a week of use. I went to the hardware store and got some o rings instead and they seem to be working fine. O rings are hard to take off once you put them on though.

                                      For the price these are good for what they do, keeping your straps in place. I don't know how they would stand up to rigorous testing as I baby my stuff. These are little rubber washers that you put over your strap over the strap holder. They keep the strap from popping off. They were very easy to install and are made from pretty sturdy stuff. I only wish they came in other colors.
