I've used these on 3 different guitars in the past including the set I just ordered for my Ibanez.
They are great and secure.
The same problem however on all sets I've bought, were the screws!
They have a diameter about half the size of every original screw I have removed from my guitars.
You cannot use the original screws for 2 reasons: The screw head will not fit into these locks. The second problem is you have to drill the lock hole bigger to use a larger diameter screw, but then are faced with the problem of the screw head being too big.
Still scratching my head as to why they are made with such a small diameter screw when clearly almost every guitar has a screw diameter almost twice the size of these strap provided screws.

Here's another concept.
Tell the potential buyer what size screws you use.
If the product description said, "Includes #6 screws", I may have pulled one of mine, saw it wasn't a #6 and looked elsware.
Should be the perfect solution. But...........
When every guitar mounts their buttons with #8 screws, why would you design your product to use #6?
You can't drill out the hole, because it's already too big. And you can't simply use the old screws, because the heads need to fit inside the new buttons.

You even include extra screws. Nice touch except that they are just longer #6 screws.
Here's an idea. Make the buttons to accept either #8 OR #6 and include extra #8's?
Genius!
Or, tell the nice folks in China to make it to fit #8 screws, then you can have the optiion of drilling out the hole a tiny bit.

Instead, the buyer is left to fill in the holes with toothpicks and wood glue, then drill out a smaller hole, or, do as I will, look for a better strap lock.
Should be great, except for the screws.
How do I receive value on something I have to modify?

          These came with my 1st Fender P-Bass, and I have put a set on all my straps/guitars.

                I have used other straplock systems and these are the best so far that I have used. The locking system is easy and does not require drilling holes. The only draw back is that leather straps are thicker than the post allows for, so you may need to cut some of the strap. Other than that issue great staplocks!

                Best Uses

                  Comments about Schaller Guitar Strap Locks and Buttons (Pair):

                  Ordered several of these. Put them on a couple of Fender Jazz basses and a Rogue violin bass first. On all these, they went on very easily and seem very secure. The Schaller screws were just a tiny bit larger/longer than the original screws. Pro tip: lube screw with a bit of soap.

                  I saved my Gibson Les Paul for last, since I had seen comments indicating a mis-match with the screws -- yep. On my LP, the upper bout button was easy. I elected to use re-use the original Gibson screw, since it was a bit longer and larger than the Schaller screws. That worked pretty well, except that because of the shape of the button, the screw ended up going in a bit deeper. No problem, just an anxious moment hoping nothing would go wrong with driving the screw in further. The lower bout button was a whole other problem. That screw was MUCH larger in diameter than the upper one. Rather than plugging the hole in the body with plastic wood or toothpick, I decided to reuse the Gibson screw, but it was so large that it wouldn't fit through the hole in the button. I drilled out the hole in the button with a 11/64" drill bit (don't try this without a decent drill press and a vise, padded with paper towel or some such). Only a small amount of metal was removed, so this didn't appear to weaken the button. Then I discovered the next problem: the screw head was too large to fit into the inside of the button. With the screw head sticking up out of the button, the lock wouldn't fit on it (the plunger in the lock has to go down inside the button in order to lock). I ended up grinding down the head of the screw until it fit. None of this shows, since it's inside the button, and after installing it, it seemed very secure. Once again, the screw went in about 0.2" further than with the original button, so should hold. This is a 2015 Les Paul; it would not be surprising to discover that other LPs have completely different screws/buttons. YMMV. Just be aware of this if you want to install these on a LP.

                  most likely the best strap locks on the market easy to install and once on a strap it is easy to remove from the guitar but hold like its part of the guitar when in use
