      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?

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

        Comparable in quality to the strap locks made by D****p, but the nuts that clamp the female end of the lock to the strap slowly come loose, and must be frequently checked. Just quickly hand tighten them every time you pull it out of the case.

        I may go to an auto parts store and get some threadlock compound to put on them. The stuff is super watery, and you don't want to get it on the strap, or finish of the guitar, tho...

        I have two Fender basses that were assembled with the male-post ends of these straplocks screwed into their bodies as standard equipment, but the female ends that fit on the strap were not included. One is Mexican, and the other is American made.

        One other small minus is that the Schallers have slightly sharp edges that can leave dings in the guitars finish, if the strap is left attached to the guitar when it is put away in the case. Of course, if you have a "Roadworn" type guitar, that is not an issue.

        If I was to pick a favorite between these and the "D" brand, i would pick the "D's" by a slight margin...

        The D's are a little easier to hook on, but the posts are a little longer, and can feel a little awkward because they hold the guitar a little farther from your body, if the post is screwed into the back side of the guitars upper horn (Pointing toward your left armpit, if you are a right handed player.) The D's screws are a little longer and fatter, so they are better anchored into the guitar body...but the holes must be drilled deeper and wider.

        If you have a really thick leather strap, the Schallers are a bit easier to screw on than the ones that are held on by D's post and circle clip style..which you will also need a pair of pliers (needle nose the best) to install...but then again, the screws can loosen themselves...

        The bottom line is that if you can get a better deal on the Schallers,go for it. If your Fender came with 'em, go for it, and buy a set, so you have the female ends to attach to the strap. Just check the nuts frequently.

                I got these in black for the black Les Paul 60s Tribute guitar in ebony I bought two years ago. I'm glad two sizes of screws were included as the short ones came in very handy during installation, which was a piece of cake. It will be interesting to see if the black finish rubs off any during use. Strap locks are the best insurance for keeping your guitars strapped to your body. I highly recommend these. In fact, I'm ordering another set for another guitar I have.

                    BROKE IT. Problems include the outer flange sticking on the body pin and twisting the screw loose. Cheap soft metal seems to be the cause. Body pin broke in half last night while I was playing. The screw was still in the bass, but the knob was in two pieces. This is even worse than having no lock at all, since I trusted it to hold. Bass neck almost hit the floor as a result. The show was disrupted until I had to duct tape the strap on my bass to finish. Time to try something else.

                          I've only tried two brands, the dunlop and these. I see there are other brands now and I'm interested in trying them to compare. Between the dunlop and these I like these better because they don't stick out as far from the guitar. The dunlops I had eventually pulled too much on the screw and they came loose. These do what they are suppose to and I've never had a problem. Great product!

                          I don't get too crazy playing when playing but I have had a couple incidents where the strap just came loose off the button. These locks give me a sense of security and ensure that the guitar won't drop to the floor. Only minor complaint is they make slight squeaky noises when rotating on the buttons.
