      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.

              I have these on nine of my guitars. I have two straps I use. I just snap my strap to whatever guitar I want to play. Never had any issues with this product. Putting it on my leather strap took a little work but once it was on it never needed to come off. Works perfectly for me.

                  Good strap locks. They are dependable and quiet. Some strap locks are noisy and you can hear the metal parts scraping. These won't add extraneous noise to you sound.

                    Make sure you follow the instructions and drill a hole exactly as it tells you to. I didn't do that the first time I bought these things. Ever since I corrected that mistake, I have it on both basses and my guitar. Never has it once fallen onstage from these failing.

                          These are a must have even if your just practicing at home and use a strap with your guitar. I had one close call one time before I learned about straplocks. Is is fairly easy for the strap to fall off the regular strap button and almost had one of my guitars fall on the ground. Now, they both have Dunlop straplocks and will never have to worry about that ever happening again. Simple to install, and they look great too.
