        Pretty cool idea

        I like this strap a lot, the grafix on it look good, I bought it from a local store and mine has red dragons on the strap that go well with my guitar. The concept of this strap it great, but like others said before me, it's not completely thought out like it could have been.First problem- I have a Stratocaster and the plastic part that is attached to the strap isn't covered in rubber, and it began to mar my finish, but thankfully I noticed before I lost paint and made a cover out of flannel to keep that from happening, now it should be fine, but it's not as cool now that I have to check the flannel is protecting my axe.Second- I have no idea how the locking mechanism works nor the method used to hold the fabric of the strap in the locking mechanism, and it makes me nervous because I'll never know how well it's made until it breaks and I can see inside. Good ratchet design? Sturdy spikes biting into the fabric, or cheaply designed ones that might shear off?Manufacurers providing diagrams of their technology is always a plus... sometimes I wonder how well it will hold because of the bad reviews this strap has... thankfully I'm good at catching my axe from previous conventional straps failing on me.I do like this thing though, and not having to modify my guitar to accept different pin screws is great.

        There seems to be a fine line between whether or not this strap is great, or sucks horribly. That may make no sense, but hear me out. For example, when you take a look at the cons of this strap:1)As much of a great idea as a locking system at the end of a strap was, it's completely unreliable. I find myself having to relock it over and over again throughout my playing. Of course, it depends on what kind of guitar you have. I have an Epiphone SG, so the strap button rests on the back of the guitar, right below the neck. This means that the release button on the strap is for the most part always resting aginst my hip, which may or may not put pressure on it and make it release. Of course, it also releases the lock on the tail end of my guitar, where nothing is ever pushing on it, really. Over the course of the time I've had it (6 months) it will release spontaneously for no reason at all, on both ends of the strap. 2) The part of the lock that rests against the body of my guitar is coated in a layer of rubber. This is so the plastic part of the lock doesn't scratch up my guitar, but after a while, the rubber coating has started to erode and wear down, leaving a ring of wierd residue on the back of my guitar where the strap rests. I'm not sure what the properties of the rubber are, but it could be a bad thing for the laquer of high value guitars.When you're looking at the pros:The ends of the strap are made of plastic, not vinyl or imitation leather. This means that it virtually won't break unless you try to break it. Sure, the ends come undone, but unless I'm jumping around, it won't fall out. It's like riding a bike and having the chain fall off. Of course you've lost control and the bike feels loose, but you're gonna keep rolling along for a while. As long as I've had the strap, it's never cracked, broken, or torn. Just malfunctioned. The webbing the strap is made of is strong; and won't break easily. Plus the Planet Waves logo is just a square of loose fabric stitched onto the strap parallel to the sides, leaving it loose down the middle. I usually stick an extra pick in there haha...Hope that helps.

        I used this strap in my strat, jackson, gretsch, and variax, fixes great and never had a problem. I play regulary every sunday and wednesday and even tough I don't spin my guitars it fills very safe, this strap is still in almost new condition. They should made some nice leader straps with this locking system!

        Not sure what all the fuss is about...

        By Anonymous

        from Undisclosed

        I've read a lot of bad reviews for this strap. I've owned one for about a year and a half now and it's never unlocked on it's own, nor has any part of it broken in any way. It works perfectly in my opinion, and unlike "normal" straps which tend to loosen up over time and barely stay on the guitar, this one is pretty much in the same condition as the day I bought it. I'm actually buying another one right now because the only thing I don't like is taking it off the guitar : )

        best strap i've owned

        By Anonymous

        from Undisclosed

        I have owned several guitar straps and the Planet lock strap is definitely the best. I use it with my Epiphone Les Paul, which is pretty heavy when using a strap, and when I used other straps they were either uncomfortable, got uncomfortable after playing for a while, or would allow my guitar to fall out of the ends. With the Planet lock strap I can do whatever I want without worrying about my neck and back hurting and without worrying about my guitar falling on the ground. And the locks really do fit any guitar.

        spin your guitar all night

        By musicman91

        from Los Angeles, CA

        i always wanted to spin my guitar on stage but i never had the right strap. all of a sudden one day a friend of mine gave it to me for free, so i took it home and tried it out. i've had this for about a year, on top of however long my friend had it, and it has not broken or let me down one bit. the last show i played, i spun my guitar and the crowd went crazy. all thanks to this bad boy right here. it's definately a good investment. i got it for free, but i'd pay the money in a heartbeat. if you like to have some fun on stage, buy this strap..

        Great for the passive player

        By Owen-AvQCu

        from Hagerstown, MD

        Why would you buy a straplock system or a strap with such thing? Because you are an energitic player and do not want your strap to slide off is the most reasonable answer. Your strap is unlikely to come undone if you are simply standing there. I for one am a very "enthusiastic" player. This lasted about 2 songs. That's it. The backing of the locking mechanism is weak and broke after a little stress. This IS great however if you want to put a strap on a guitar and never have to take it off.

        Good Idea, Bad Execution

        By Rib Eye

        from Alexandria, VA

        There are four problems with this strap, which on paper seems a brilliant idea. 1. The locking mechanism occasionally will spontaneously unlock itself. I've never dropped a guitar, but it's always a bit of a suprise to go to unlock the strap to find it has unlocked itself. 2. The nylon is slick and tends to not hold the length adjustment. 3. The end pieces won't fit over a strap pin that doesn't have 360 degree clearance (if your strap pin is set in the neck heel, parallel to the neck, forget it.) 4. The rubber pads on the back of the locks, which are designed to protect the guitar's finish, cause a lot of squeaking and creaking, enough so that the amp picks up the sound, as you move around. This strap was an ok temporary fix but no where near the best strap locking solution I have ever used. For that I'm going back to Schaller locks and basic Levy's leather strap.

        i've used this exact same strap for 3 years now and it has never let me down. its great, has an easy locking. i wouldn't recomend its quality for doing guitar swings though. but i can tell u if you take care of this strap, it will take care of your guitar for years. it is also very very comfterable. i play a les paul and thats pretty heavy after an hour. but now i play a jackson and the strap applys barely any pressure to my shoulder.excellent over all product.

        Nice Approach, Bad Execution...

        By Frank-_USBu

        from Boston, MA

        I was looking for a locking strap since I recently purchased an Ibanez Jem and wanted that to stay safe. I felt fine with it until it broke. I don't do guitar flips or any of that crazy stuff. I was actually just pulling up the neck right before I was going to start a show and the end snapped on me. Luckily I had a good grip on the guitar but in most cases my guitar would've smashed off the floor. I only had it for about 10 months and never put any hard use on it and it already snapped. Look for a better locking strap if you want one...

        Decent Strap

        By Tim-AjXCh

        from Quincy, MA

        I guess a few folks have had quality issues. I sure haven't. I've had one of these for 3 years on my Les Paul and it's worked out great, never lost my strap onstage once. It's kind of a tight fit for Gibson guitars with those small strap buttons, but like I said mine's never slipped off. Pretty comfy strap too considering the price. Cheap no-modification alternative to putting strap-locks on your guitar that's for sure. I'm getting another one for my NEW guitar right now.
