      Thanks to the patented design Planet Lock system, this 2" polypropylene guitar strap fits virtually any guitar and stays locked in place until you release the side pin.

Plus, you can easily swap out the guitar strap to different guitars.

        This is the best straplock design ever. You can remove the strap and put it on in a second or two, and you don't have to keep the strap attached to the guitar while in the case like other straplocks. I play a very heavy Les Paul copy and no longer have to curl my body over while playing so as to catch my guitar if it falls!

        Tried it on an Ibanez RG2550Z (last year's model). You can barely put it on; the button head on the guitar is about 17-18mm, but the widest part of the strap holder is 17mm (the narrow is 10mm). Trying in an angle I finally managed to get it on, but there's not enough freedom of movement and I couldn't quite get it to sit right.

        I removed right away, and noticed it left some rubber on the guitar. Maybe it's because I had to struggle to put it on, but it doesn't look like the right choice of material.

        Summary:

        * The locking mechanism looks nice (assuming it's durable, which I didn't test).
        * It didn't fit my guitar because of the 17mm opening and because the holders are bulky thickness-wise.
        * The rubber on the internal side isn't durable.

                Comments about Planet Waves 2" Polypropylene Planet Lock Guitar Strap:

                Good quality strap that is of moderate comfort. Secures your guitar by using a locking mechanism built into the strap itself, which doesn't require you to replace and screw in new guitar nuts. It's really simply to use and is a great price. I like the Dimazzio Click Straps but I didn't necessarily want to switch out the nuts on my new guitar since I felt it would diminish the aesthetics of it. Plus I didn't want it to be a permanent fixture. But this strap was the absolute solution to my problem. Don't hesitate. It's an excellent deal.

                  After playing for more than 40 years, this seems to be the most secure strap I've used. I have an oversized strap plug with a mike input jack in it on my acoustic guitar and this fits perfectly. It fits the normal plug, as well. It locks on and feels great. I'd recommend it to anyone.

                          I bought this strap based on recommendations. I intended to use it for my Rainsong guitar but, because one of its strap buttons sits on the heel of the neck, which is not flush with the back of the guitar, this strap cannot be used. I'm frustrated!

                          Finally, a strap lock integrated into the strap itself. This system REALLY works. Strap lock is plastic housing with rotating cam with ratch mechanism which locks when closed. A release button allows removal. The plastic housing has a rubber cover on one side to protect the instrument. Very well conceived. Very well executed. The only down side is that it is a little pricey. Not too bad comapred to strap + separte lock mechanism but still a little high IMHO. Once you get past the intital cost the value this system provides is excellent.
