I bought these to replace a worn out set of Schaller strap locks which I have had on all of my guitars from the early 80's.
Although they appear to be identical to the Schaller's upon my very first gig with them the pin and spring went flying.
Although a quick fix, I was very lucky my bass player has good eyes to locate the tiny pieces and lucky I did not drop my new build.
Over-all average quality. The machining/casting isn't as clean as the Schaller strap locks. The plating is already wearing of the mounting buttons.(less than two months use) This might be because I bought the black locks.
These work just fine with my other Schaller strap lock equipped guitars (the Grover strap locks clip right into the Schaller buttons!)
I have been using this type of lock for over 25 years and they have never failed me, VERY cheap insurance.
A set of these is on every guitar and strap I own and on every rebuild I do. I have to repair the cosmetic and structural damage caused by worn holes in straps fitted to dropped guitars. A $25 solution to a potential $300 or more problem.
I have used the schaller version of these for decades with good results. These will interchange with them. The ones I received were hard to work. The part that attaches to the strap would not positively lock onto the strap buttons that go on the guitar. The problem was that the little pin/plunger that you pull on to disengage the locks needed to be screwed in a little bit(they just screw onto threaded metal studs that are connected to the mechanism that locks into the strap button). After that they worked great, and I have no complaints. I gave them an average because in 25+ years of using the schaller counterpart, I experienced zero issues. These I had trouble(albeit minor) right out of the gate. However, I won't hesitate to use them again, as they have functioned flawlessly since then.
Strap lock is mandatory
I have used these strap locks on 2 guitars and a bass. They are sturdy and easy to install. I will probably keep using these strap locks on my future guitars.
good quality for your money! I haven't tried other brands, but this one seems to do the job, It holds your strap on your guitar, what else would you want?
Purchased the Grover Straplocks since they were similar to the Schallers, which I use exclusively. I have Grover tuners on all of my guitars and I love them. Couldn't even get the straplock on the strap before the threads stripped. Cheap pot metal. Buy Schallers, much better quality.
Do your AXE a favor. Change out the stock strap buttons with strap locks and invest in a good durable strap. If you ever had a close call or complete disaster with a strap that slips off the strap button you know the gut wrenching feeling it gives you. So do your AXE a favor and give yourself a little peace of mind.
