I'd recommend having white or wood glue, round toothpicks, and some locktite on hand for installing any brand of strap locks and these are no exception.

Remove your old strap buttons. Cut a round toothpick to length so it fits flush in the strap button hole left in the body of your guitar/bass. Add some white/wood glue to the toothpick and drop it in the hole. Now screw your new strap button into place. The toothpick acts as a dowel and compresses against the screw for a stronger bond. The glue helps set everything in place and you never have to worry about the strap button working loose on its own. Add a bit of locktite to the threads of the strap lock and then tighten down the washer and nut to your strap. This ensures the nut doesn't work loose either.

Since you have to do this with all similar strap lock systems, I think this brand is the best value for the money.

Of course, you can also use the rubber grommets available from a certain beer with a ceramic top as strap locks. Then you get to enjoy a beverage that comes with a free strap lock :)

I ordered these some time ago... Installed them on my guitar and enjoyed them. They really are great to lock the strap to the guitar. IT KEEPS IT LOCKED TO THE GUITAR, TOO!

With this being said, today I had one of the ball ends pop off the strap-lock.. Locking the strap to the guitar, indefinitely. I had to basically Dremmal (cut) the locking mechanism and rip out the spring in order to get it off the guitar (which was hair raising at best). I'm sure this may be an uncommon occurrence; however, I will not risk using these again.

Same as Schaller

Comments about Fender Strap Locks and Buttons Set:

I have Schaller strap locks on three of my guitars and decided to try these (1) because they were on sale, and (2) because they come with two sets of felt button pads (Schaller's don't). These are identical to the Schaller strap locks - they are Schaller strap locks - except they're stamped "Fender". Great value.

      Cat of one tail....

      By Rex

      from undisclosed

      See all my reviews

      Ask me a question

      Comments about Fender Strap Locks and Buttons Set:

      Here's why I gave it a 2:
      Because I can't use the washer, the nut being the only fastener will work loose, so I lose my nuts, pun however you like. To make matters worse, the lock on the top cutaway will work loose the wood screw, & I'm having to constantly tighten that. So with nuts hitting the floor & getting lost, I thought I'd try finding replacements. Let me reassure you that AIN'T GONNA WORK. Those are known in the industry as panel nuts, they're metric, & you're not going to find them at any hardware store or supplier unless you're willing to order 1-2K of them.
      Now I've been advised to use blue Loc-Tite, which I'll probably go with, & then I might just tank them & have some Bb strap buttons installed.
      Bottom line, with a longer threaded shaft (which I don't see happening anytime soon) or a thinner strap, they're okay. Otherwise, they're more fuss than function.
      My overall quibble with the Fender/Schaller strap locks is they're not thick strap friendly. Basically the threaded shaft is not long enough to accommodate thicker (leather) straps. I have to lose the washer to make them work, & therein lies the problem as to why I had to order this set I'm reviewing.
      My Amer. Dlx. Strat came equipped with these, & I'm not really crazy about them anyway, but I use them. Sticking to the script, they feature a tough, heavy duty construction compared to other systems, & when used with thinner straps, sure, they're great. Also that heavy dutiness can be an issue too, & they can be clunky, I'll get into that below.
      As mentioned above, they're heavier than other strap lock systems I've check out. Where this is an issue with me is that they're so heavy you have to be careful when reaching around to attach/detatch the rear lock because if you're allowing it to swing around it will nick the guitar, hence the nickname "cat of one tail". All dings/nicks on my instrument have come from those things.
      I rated this high because in comparison to others it's the most bang for the buck, only that you take heed as for it not to be most "ding" for the buck.
      And because I had to order these because of parts falling off, the price is okay enough I didn't get hurt too bad.
      Again, when used with a thin(ner) strap they're okay.

      Must have

      Comments about Fender Strap Locks and Buttons Set:

      I am glad i purchased these. It was really no problem making them work on my guitar. Just took a little longer.
      I gave an 9 only because the screws were too small. I had to replace them with larger ones with a small enough head to fit through the lock button. Once I did that they are fantastic. A nice chrome look that compliments the guitar.
      I had no problem modifiying then so they would work on my Squier Tele. Would have been much easier if they came with a larger diamiter screw. The screw from my original buttons would not fit through the lock button either so I could not use them.
      I think these are at a great price.

      Perfection

      By RAILhead

      Comments about Fender Strap Locks and Buttons Set:

      I've used these strap locks on all my guitars for years and years. I once tried the competition since they were less, but those actually snapped in half. That was the one -- and only -- time I "strayed" from these strap locks.

      Simple to install, simple to use, and you can literally "set 'em and forget 'em."

      Tips:

      1. Make sure you use a wrench to tighten the nut on the strap end. Some straps are thick, and you need to make sure the nut really gets a good bite on the teeth of the threaded post. I hold the clip in place by folding the strap around it, then crank on the nut with a wrench until I can't tighten it any further.

      2. If you find the stock strap post hole is too big, simply apply some wood glue to a piece of a toothpick and shove it into the hole. No need to wait for the glue to dry.
      They do exactly what you need them to do: hold your strap onto the body of the guitar.
      I've been using these strap lock sets for years, and I've never had any issues with breakage, finish, or anything else. Install them and forget them.
      What's the value of keeping your strap from slipping off the stock strap peg? Exactly.

      Good quality and compatible with other brands

      By Lawrence Thames

      from S. Texas.

      Comments about Fender Strap Locks and Buttons Set:

      Yep, Cheaper than Schaller, Nicer than Pro-Line.

      They are invaluble if you switch or take-off your Guitar or Bass often during a set. There is no chance of the "slack" strap falling off the buttons, especially that well-worn "favorite" strap.
      Locks fit Schaller and Pro-Line buttons and those locks fit the Fender buttons. You may have to find different screws depending on the Guitar or Bass you are installing them on.
      Heavy Chrome plating, nice thread on lock part and smooth operation of locking pin.
      Lower Price point than the similar quality Schaller's.

        Great locks. Work perfectly on my custom shop tele. Use a thick leather strap and fit perfectly. You can use stock buttons but i used the supplied screws and washers. Use paraffin on screws. Makes them install easier. Tightened nuts with socket. They are not coming loose. They are not coming loose. Have checked them several times. They are still tight. Would recommend them. Have another brand on my strat.they are good but not like the Fenders

          This is my second set; I first used them on my (heavy) P-Bass, then got these for my Strat.
          I put a small amount of light grease on the "stud" turns freely w/no squeaks.

              These strap locks fit my strat perfectly without changing the buttons. One of the reasons I bought them was someone said they fit both strats and teles without changing the buttons. But the buttons on my thinline tele are different so they don't fit. I know I could change out the buttons but I like to keep everything stock so...

                Comments about Fender Strap Locks and Buttons Set:

                Have you ever put your guitar strap on quickly, only to stand up and have it come off your instrument? I have been playing for over 30 years and yes, this does happen.

                I own two Fender instruments a Made is USA strat and an American Deluxe 5 string Bass. The combined retail value is close to $3K. I bought two of these, one for the guitar strap for each instrument. The strap locks work great. If you already own a Fender you may not need to change the existing strap posts in the guitar/bass. All I needed to do was add the strap lock to my guitar straps and I was done! These babies fit right over my existing Fender guitar posts. How easy is that!

                If you own a Fender instrument, get these. Non Fender strap locks often use wood screws with different threads. Why risk damaging your expensive instrument? This is a no BRAINER for Fender owners. If you are like me, you may have spent thousands on your amp, pedals, guitars and other gear. This is the cheapest and best insurance you can buy for your axe. Just do it!

                      These came preinstalled on a new Fender Jazz bass, and have been a disappointment. I replaced the default nylon strap with a padded and wider Levys one. 2 things loosen and fall off regularly despite tightening repeatedly: (1) the little round balls at the end of the lock that you pull to unlock it. (2) the hex nut that attches the strap to the lock, esp the one closest to the neck. I treat my gear gently and with TLC, and do not swing my guitar around on stage. Replacing these asap....

                              My strap keep falling out and I had too many near misses. I have a Fender Juaguar Bass, which is a very long and heavy instrument. Once these stap locks came on, the strap is safe no matter what I do.

                              They are easy to install but you see a videos on YouTube to help you install them. All I gotta worry about now is playing and not my bass falling and breaking. This a small investment that may save you hundreds and peace of mind.

                              My guitar strap kept falling off. So looked at a
                              few other brands. I got these. I'm glad I did.
                              They really work well. I never had used strap locks before. They didn't come with instructions.
                              But I figured it out.
                              I've been using them for a month now. There still
                              holding up. Best purchase I ever made.

                              I have these strap locks on all my guitars. Very nice quality. You should periodically check them & tighten as necessary. I use a small drop of loctite on the threads & rarely have a problem with them coming loose.
