First of all don't expect much, its just a couple of plastic pieces. And if you're fine with drilling into your guitar, than maybe you should go with the traditional strap locks. This one works like those beer caps some people use. But if your main goal (like mine was) is to secure your guitar without making modifications in it, it will be a good solution. And its inexpensive so it worth a try. I use it with my beloved American Standard Strat, with the provided strap, and it fits perfectly. I never had any problems, but It's a good idea to check if its well locked before going on stage.

Never without

I have been using the Lokstraps on a heavy Custom LP model and light Melody Makers ans stat-style guitars. This safety system is inexpensive, reliable and seems to be durable. No drillings or modifications required. I wouldn't use it with a too slim guitar strap on a nitro finished guitar for the plastic dishes are quite wide and they might leave traces of use all around them. Apart from that, I would never again hit the stage without the lokstraps on my guitars! Toto

Easy to lock without changing original strap button

What a clever idea. Nice fix for someone who doesn't want to change out original strap buttons but wants a more secure strap. For me, they worked best on thinner straps.

Worked great on my Godin mandolin, but it will have trouble with thicker straps, not enough room on the button to hold it securly at least on my Takamine acoustic

It's a great gadget, but it could be get lost so easy. Also, some times it turns by itself losing the locking properties.

Why didn't I think of these....

They work great on my strap and guitar. As long as you don't spin the guitar on a carpeted floor or something then put it back on without checking to make sure that the lock is still engaged. I spun mine on the couch to pick it up and the lock came undone and fell of on the bottom strap button. I can't see them coming loose any other way though, especially not while on your guitar while you're wearing it. Plus, they're portable and can go from guitar to guitar if you happen to have six, like I do. Now, if they only were made of the photo they are a little hard to see on my Spotlight but they are on it which is another plus. You don't have to modify your vintage instrument to make it safe from falls. I dropped a really nice Melody Maker once and broke the set in neck in horrible ways. I'd still have it most likely if I would have had these on it at the time.

Stew-Mac Innovates

I have been playing guitar and bass since the mid '70's and first saw these strap locks in the early '80's, so I bought a couple of pair, which I still own. All the guitarists I have shown them to have been very impressed. For over 20 years I have been looking to buy more of these, but never saw them again until recently. Now my prayers have been answered with Stewart-MacDonald! Other strap locks on the market are two-piece, semi-permanent, require screwing them to your guitar and strap and cost $10 to $20 (more important even: the metal parts of the standard strap locks can ding and scratch the surface of your guitar.) These are easy to use, very sturdy and much less expensive. You simply can't go wrong with this solution.
Thanks again, Stew-Mac, for yet another innovative product!

Great idea

Like all great ideas, this was a "why didn't I think of that?" However, please make one that will fit over acoustic electric end pin jacks.

They're okay.

I prefer a sturdier strap lock myself, but these will do the trick. The price is terrific though, and I will order more in the future as they are a nice little bonus to toss in the case after doing a job...

Simple and effective

This is a simple product that does the a great job. Make sure you dont have "Large" strap button...or you'll have to change them...but once changed these little jewels shine...
