OVERVIEW

Attaches your strap to most acoustic guitars with endpin jacks.

The D’Addario Planet Waves Acoustic CinchFit is the fast and easy way to attach your strap to most acoustic guitars with endpin output jacks. Endpin jacks are notorious for creating hassles when applying and removing standard guitar straps, and usually require modification to the strap which results in a less-than-desirable fit. The Acoustic CinchFit loops through the end of any instrument strap and its cinch clamping action allows easy application and removal, utilizing the weight of the instrument to remain locked onto the endpin so your guitar is always held securely.


Ingenious solution to an ages-old problem. Order today.

I've been modifying straps for years to fit my Fishman jacks. Never felt safe, always ready to catch my falling guitar or have the strap pull out the cable. This simple little piece is the answer!! Can't recommend it enough! Check your jack as it only fits Fishman and a few others!

Purchased two of these but had to return them because they are too thick and won't fit onto the Taylor acoustic guitars which have very short end strap/plug connections. They fit my Gibson and other guitars but I really needed them on the Taylors' due to the short end pieces that Taylor uses. It is a deficit by Taylor guitars and not these strap locks. Taylor needs to use longer connectors.

    Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves CinchFit Acoustic Jack Lock:

    D'Addario was remiss in not informing prospective buyers that this item will not work on the basal strap button on Taylor acoustic-electric guitars. Small print on the packaging says the Cinch Fit was designed to work with Fishman and Switchcraft buttons. I did not know that when I bought it online. And, to me, this suggests that many or most guitars may not be compatible. Certainly, my two Taylors are not.

    Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves CinchFit Acoustic Jack Lock:

    An interesting design that seems to work. It's very easy to use once you get the hang of it. I don't have a long history with it yet, but it works well on a Fishman end-jack. My only concern is how well the lanyard stop will lock the unit over time, but so far it's very good. It provides a solid hold while allowing full access to the jack. It also extends the strap a bit which for me was good. With practice, mounting or removing a strap is a snap; much easier than pushing and pulling a strap over an endpin. If it continues to be this good and never drop my Guild B-140E Acoustic Bass I will give it the fifth star.

      good concept, but one side of the button hole should be routed larger to fit the wider, body side of the pin/jack...it may work on some, but not on any of the ones I own...I will use a dremmel tool and make it suitable for my instruments, as it will not fit any of them as is...

          This product fit my endpin jack perfectly and made it possible to use the really nice strap my son bought for me. (Using the actual strap end kept pushing the pin out and made the connection unreliable - even after having a shoemaker modify the end.) That said, I've talked to people with Taylor and Breedlove guitars who say this product is too small for their endpin jacks. I was lucky.

                      I have nearly dropped my Taylor guitar several times when the strap slipped off of the oversized tail button because of the 1/4 inch jack incorporated into it. No more! The Cinchfit jack lock holds it securely so I can lead worship without that distraction!
