I'm going to put these on my Jazz bass as well. In fact, I've been reluctant to play it now without the strap locks since the strap has slipped from time to time. The strap I use is a Levy wide suede leather strap. So it's not a cheap strap. They just get worn around the holes after regular use. If you're playing regularly with a strap you need these.
You install them like any others, take out the existing strap buttons and put this on. To put the strap on and off you put index and middle finger underneath and push with your thumb to release. I would have like to be able to just push it on without unlocking but really that would probably make them less dependable. Attacking the locks to the strap is just screwing it on there. I think there were some small grooves to help them not slip. I've heard of people saying to use lock tite on some but I didn't see a need to do it on these.
I installed these on a MIJ Jaguar Bass. The screws went in nice and snug without stripping or needing a lot of extra effort. The lock are solid with no loose parts. They lock on and have no indication that they will come loose unless you purposely take them off. The strap moves freely once it is locked on but shows no sign of coming off.
The price on these is in line with better quality locks so I'd say it's worth the money. Honestly, it's worth spending the money to keep an expensive bass from hitting the floor. If you're going to invest in nice equipment, it only makes sense to make sure you are protecting your investment.

I bought these and installed them on my Fender Deluxe Jazz V bass (MIM). The part which provides the lock and quick-release between the strap and the bass works very well and it's easy to operate.

The problem I've had is that the two parts the screw together to hold onto the strap itself come unscrewed very easily. I've had it come completely undone during a gig. I've now conditioned myself to check and tighten between songs.

This is not how strap locks are supposed to behave.

      Easy to install on a Fender Strat - just unscrew the existing strap buttons and screw in the new ones, fast and easy to do. They work great. Now I want these for all my other guitars!

            Excellent lock to keep my straps on and straight. I have them on all my guitars. Only drawback is they're a little obtrusive. I'd like a smaller lock that doesn't stick out as far

                      I love these and even bought the black ones for another rig. Another reviewer mentioned that the part that attaches to the strap can unscrew easily, however the way I solve that was by apply a bit of blue locktite - problem solved! They are a bit larger that Loxx Strap locks. I'd buy this again.

                      Comments about Fender Strap Lock:

                      I have been a die-hard fan of Schaller strap locks for over 10 years now until I discovered this. Out of curiosity, I ordered a set and installed them on my main Les Paul. Not only are they easier to use, but they require no modification to the strap itself. Typically when installing Schaller strap locks, to get the nut/washer to thread through the strap hole completely I would have to take a pair of scissors and enlarge the hole on my strap. While, these fit perfectly right out of the box.

                      Also, unlike Dunlops, the button itself is very unobtrusive.
