      What's not to like? You get a quality set of strap loks that allow you to snap your strap on and off easily BUT when connected is very secure. Item worth having to protect your guitar from dropping while playing. Solid construction, quality plating, easy installation. I have them on all 11 of my guitars, my bass. Go the extra money and get a set and protect your guitar investment.
      Features are a swivel style straplok that attaches securely to where you removed your old strap mount. The Dunlops feature a slightly larger screw so that you securely get a bite on the wood, they go a bit deeper as well to ensure more contacts for safe and secure attachement. Then you attach a collar with the push-in post through the strap (this could take a bit of doing or even trimming the leather to allow the clamp collar to snap into it's groove. So you push the post through the strap enough to expose the clamp ring, drop a matching finish washer over the post, and slide the C clamp securely over the push in post. All that remains is to push in the pin, which retracts the small ball bearings enound to allow the post to slide into the strap lock on the guitar, release the push in pin and the balls extend out and secure the post deep inside the strap lock. It cannot be pulled out, in fact, you'd risk perhaps yanking the strap lock out of the guitar body first. Best of all, they swivel 180 degrees so you have complete freedom of motion.
      Solid quality, nice finishes, heavy plating. Best of all is a good screw phillips head that won't strip out as you're driving it into the guitar blocks. Hint: if it gets too tight and you still haven't secured the strap lock end to the guitar, compressing that little piece of felt that was on the guitar, you may want to remove the screw, and with a much tinier drill bit than the screw, drill out the hole so that the screw isn't trying to drill a new hole, You'll still get a nice secure fit. What happens if you mess up and strip the screw hole? Grab a couple of toothpicks, I like the pointy rounded ones, snap them in half and slide both halves into the stripped screw hold small end first. You may even want to add a drop of Tight-Bond wood glue for insurance. The toothpicks are now wedged into the oversized hole when the screw mashes them up against the holes oversized walls. The screws will bite the toothpicks, glue will make it all secure. Let it rest overnight before attaching the strap loks.
      Hey, you spent a lot of MONEY, scrimped, saved, toiled, and slaved to buy your new guitar. To protect it, you want the security a good set of straploks will give you. Cheap insurance to keep from dropping your pride and joy.

      These strap locks are horrible. They look rediculous because they stick out an extra inch from the body, and that causes added stress to the screw. (which explains why it comes with extra long screws. B.T.W you have to drill your guitar to accommodate the longer screws) If I play unplugged,they also produce a "Rattling Buzz" when I play lower notes.

            Comments about Dunlop Dual-Design Straplok System:

            These are a must-have as far as I'm concerned. We spend big $$$ on our axes and these help keep 'em from slipping off the strap and getting dinged up (or even worse). Perfect for players who use a wireless unit so you can use one strap for all your guitars.

            Best feature is that if you don't have your strap with the Straplock insert on it, you can also use a regular old guitar strap just fine (of course, then you don't have the security of the Straplock feature, but they work as well as the standard buttons that are on pretty much every guitar made).

            Buy with confidence and you might as well get one for every one of your guitars while you're at it since you're gonna love it that much!

              Dunlop Straplok was the first type of strap locks I ever tried. I've tried others but these are my personal preference. Everyone has their own likes and dislikes.

              usually this is the standard for strap locks. However, the screws that hold it in the body seem to keep backing out, and I have to screw them back in after evvery gig.

                      I've been playing for over 40 years. I started using these locks about 10 years ago. They take a pounding and the design does not allow them to loosen.

                        These things are great. I've never had one pop off. Whenever I get a new instrument, on go the Straploks. I got my bandmates hooked on them as well!

                        Something new: they've redesigned the button (the part that is screwed onto the guitar). Instead of a beveled top where it meets the strap, it is now flat. Not sure why, although it looks like it would reduce wiggle a little bit by creating more contact with the washer.

                            I have used strap locs for decades now. Installs in minutes with pliers and a screw driver. Excellent quality. Works as advertised. Never have your guitar strap pop loose again! These things will save your guitar.

                                    These are the original on and off strap lock. I've NEVER had a set fail me. I've recently started countersinking the post to give my bass guitars a sleeker look without a strap pin sticking out of the bodies...works and looks great! I've tried several of the "other guys" strap locks and have always come back to these. GET SOME...!!!
