I looked at other possible solutions such as the strap with weights to counteract the neck heavy problem. But they are much more expensive and wider. I don't like wide straps so that possibility was out.
This product helped a lot for my neck heavy guitars. I had to use it differently than pictured. I don't have my right shoulder through the strap, just my left. The strap material is a little slippery so you may have to keep adjusting the length or do something else to keep it from lengthening out on you. Not having my right shoulder through the strap helped for me.
Durable material. It should last quite well but is slippery.
It wasn't exceedingly expensive and will last well. Once you overcome the slipperiness, it works well for the intended purpose.

Great idea on paper. Poor execution on design. I should have tried one out first to prevent having a useless strap that I might as well throw away. Due to the designers not caring enough to make this idea really work they simply connected both extra straps to the end of the device where it attaches to the bridge end of the guitar and that doesn't work because iit repositions the instrument to the point of unplayable. I thought about reconstructing this item with parts and pieces from another sacrifice strap but it's hardly worth the trouble. Maybe someday. Maybe not. A real shame they couldn't get it right even if it cost more it would be worth it and the fix is very easy to design but people just don't care about making things right anymore.

Comments about Slider Straps Dual Shoulder Strap:

This strap is an excellent idea, especially for those with heavy or unbalanced instruments. The problem is that the strap appears to be made with some very short people in mind. My lanky self attaches it to the guitar and finds that the instrument is practically under my neck!!

      Great strap for a person with any back issues
      My wife plays bass for my band. Being 5' 3" and 120 lbs a bass is not conducive to her back. This strap has been awesome for her, no more pain, full range of motion, and looks decent too!
      Strap ends could be a little beefier but they hold up well.

      Not the right stuff

      Comments about Slider Straps Dual Shoulder Strap:

      After a test run on my Jackson DKMG with turbo, I was verry disapointed with the Slider guitar shoulder strap. It dose everything they claim, but verry limiting, tried long adjustment, short adjustment, med.adjustment. The Slider g.s.s. transfers the load from uper back to lower back. For me that is out of the question. I will be returning the Slider g.s.s. to Musicians Friend asap.
      The idea is sound but not for me.
      When I opened the box today, I examined the Slider Shoulder Strap. The lether ends are very thin, with Dunlop strap locks I needed 3 washers befor the E-clip.
      For the price it's ok. Just ok.

      Comments about Slider Straps Dual Shoulder Strap:

      I couldn't wait to try this guitar strap out. After all, it's a girl using it in the picture. But seriously, it is not comfortable at all. I could not get it to balance out at all with my Telecaster and was constantly tugging at it. My drummer teased me that it looked like I was wearing a bra on the outside of my blouse. And to top it off, I always had to get somebody to help me get the thing on right without getting it all tangled and twisted. I don't recommend it at all. But then again, maybe it was designed specifically for males.

            Comments about Slider Straps Dual Shoulder Strap:

            The strap as designed does not hold the guitar neck at the proper angle, unless you are an undisciplined player who plays with the neck pointing at the floor. I play with the neck at about a 45 degree angle (pointing up) and the only way that I can achieve this with this strap is to use it upside down and reversed from how the instructions suggest it to be worn. I found another brand that shifts the guitar weight to the hips and still manages to keep the guitar at a comfortable angle.

              This strap has been very helpful for maintaining a well postured standing or seated position while playing my autoharp in an Appalachian style vertical position. For added security of my instrument, I have incorporated using a locking strap button mechanism and would recommend that any user of any strap system do the same.

              I cannot address others finding fault for its ease of use and fit. The instructions included show how to put the strap on and I have find this works fine. Most issues previously criticized were for use on guitars. I found no issues in donning, adjusting, or wearing this strap for use with an autoharp.

              It Works If You Wear It Backwards

              By MTM

              from Belton, SC

              About Me Experienced

              Comments about Slider Straps Dual Shoulder Strap:

              The product does work, but you have to make some adjustments for it to actually perform its function.

              When you first put on the product, as directed by the instructions, you will notice that the right side is double-strapped. (This is similar to the adjustment loop on a regular strap.) The problem with this is that the double-strapped side is stronger, and thus it tries to pull the bottom of the guitar upwards. This makes for an awkward playing position, since most guitar players like to angle the neck upwards.

              The solution I found was to wear the product backwards. You just turn it around so that the double-strapped side is over your left shoulder.

              When you put it on, you pull the fasteners (the ends) until all the straps are flush against your back and aren't twisted. Then, you pull the right-side fastener down below your waist, and pull the left-side fastener up near your armpit.

              When you then attach the fasteners to the guitar, it puts the guitar in a more traditional position, with the neck angled up. Then you adjust the double-strapped side, much as you would a traditional strap, to get as much support as you need to keep the guitar in position.

              I will point out that even with these steps, the guitar still has a little bit of a tendency to drop out of position, as the guitar neck still wants to drop down. However, with the double-strap on your left side, the guitar won't resist you when you try to bring it up to normal playing position, as it does when the product is worn the opposite way. If you rest your right (strumming) arm on the body of the guitar and push in a little, this will force the guitar to stay in normal playing position, with the neck angled up.

              (Let me point out to the lefties that you don't need to wear the product backwards. You only need to make the other adjustments I mentioned.)

              Because you have to make these several adjustments, I rate the product three stars, since you really shouldn't have to do this. The inventors had a good idea, but they just didn't quite design it properly.

              That said, if you have chronic back pain as I do, then a little inconvenience is nothing if it provides you with relief.

              • Playing While Standing

              Comments about Slider Straps Dual Shoulder Strap:

              For over ten years, they're all I use. They solve neck dive and displace about a quarter of the guitar's weight to the opposite shoulder. Initially, it was hard to adjust the pin-to-pin length, but that was one time several years ago.

              At first, I would invert the opposite loop. It was confusing, because the back portion inverts. But that lasted about a week. A more persistent issue was how the opposite loop would slip off my shoulder. Now the material has flattened from use, which resolved both issues. Putting it on is a thoughtless motion. Remember to pinch the sleeve and pull it down! That matters.

              It's convenient to wear the strap like a vest and then return to the guitar. Unfortunately, pin-to-pin strap length is too inconvenient to adjust (for me) to use the same strap for multiple guitars with different length requirements. (e.g. A Tele and a dreadnought.) So I bought two straps. :)

              Comments about Slider Straps Dual Shoulder Strap:

              If you want to wrestle with it for an hour or so you might get it to fit. But it will still be a tangled mess.
              It won't work on guitars that have a deep body. Acoustic guitars or Jazz guitars. It means the strap won't go over the lower bout......oh they forgot to mention that.
              Couldn't even untangle it to put it on.
              Cheaply made with inferior materials.
              It's of no value if you throw it in the corner because it just doesn't work.
              The cheesy pictures should have been enough warning. My bad.

              It's pretty good if you are a completely new person who just wants to learn to play the guitar for a side hobby.However, if you are serious about music AT ALL, do some push ups and bench your guitar.Eventually, your back will strengthen and you won't look like a jerk.Remember, being a musician is about being an entertainer.Showmanship is 9/10ths.You won't look too cool onstage looking like you're wearing a back brace.But, like I said,this isn't bad if you're not too serious about playing the guitar, which is why I put it 5 for everything, except for quality.It's good quality.It does it's job very well.

              Comments about Slider Straps Dual Shoulder Strap:

              This item was perfect for what we wanted, and more! My wife could not handle a standard strap as she was new to playing bass. No matter how light the bass was, it hurt her shoulder. This thing worked just right for her. BUT here is the better news! After a few months she was ?trained? and ready for a regular strap, and has used a standard strap ever since. So it can be a training strap. BUT HEY for those who need it, don?t worry about how it looks, it looks just fine. And just like 90% of the people who see you play don?t know the difference between a Fender and a Squire, they don?t notice this either.
