First off, I wasn't sure whether this product would be a standard (round) strap button, or the elliptical kind, or one of each, both of which are shown in the product photos, but it turned out to be two of the elliptical sort. It comes with the two strap buttons, four screws (two large, two medium), and two rubber grommets to protect the guitar's finish. Installation on my acoustic guitar (without a previous strap button) was a breeze; I watched a couple YouTube videos first, and it worked out great. I'm not sure I really like the elliptical shape, but it's working fine so far, and I suppose it would hold the strap better than a round button if you make sure to orient it properly. Just a note about installation: make sure, when you drill the hole, that you drill it into solid wood (the heel of the guitar is best), and that the drill bit you use is the right size, or else you'll either crack the neck, or the screw will fall out.
No installation instructions to speak of were included; would have rated a 10 if they had been.
Seems sort of expensive for a couple little pieces of metal...

I put these on a Gibson Les Paul Junior. Because the screws didn't fit the holes exactly right, it took a bit of doing to get the pins to fit snug enough against the guitar body so that they didn't move or spin when putting a strap on or off. Once on and tight enough to not move, they seem to work OK by don't inspire the same confidence as proper strap locks. Nice idea but the execution of this product is a little off. The pins themselves aren't quite large or long enough for thicker straps. Marginally bettre than the original Les Paul end pins but won't be installing them on any other guitars.

      'Nice strap locks. Replaced my Dunlops that made a jingle sound (kinda like Santa Clause) whenever my strap moved. I bought two sets for a Strat and Pacifica.

        These would be great strap pin/locks if used in wood hard enough to be able to tighten them enough where they wouldn't turn allowing the strap to slip off!

                    I use them as strap pegs on a new guitar
                    Because of the elliptical design they work
                    Well holding straps under the neck.They
                    Also come in black,chrome or gold.

                                When I first install this type button I was real pleased the way the strap was held securely. These are almost as good as a locking strap button.

                                  I bought these to put one on my new Gretsch Jim Dandy guitar. It came with 2 strap buttons, 2 felt washers, and 4 screws (variety of sizes). It installed easily (with pilot hole drilled) and oriented perpendicular to the strap angle. I patiently worked the Rock Steady strap end over it and feel that it is a very secure fit. I would buy these again (in appropriate color) should I need to install on another guitar. They seem to be a very good value.
