Schaller S-Locks

About This Item

Robust strap lock that is silent—perfect for a studio environment.

The plungers on the locks are all one piece, and the locks have a longer threaded section to accommodate thicker straps. The strap buttons are one piece (button and screw) with a slightly enlarged thread to dig into oversized strap button screw holes, and use a 3mm allen wrench for installation. The collars have been re-designed to include a set screw, which helps secure the strap onto the lock.

Set of 2: each set includes 2 locks, 2 strap buttons, and 2 collars.

Extra strap buttons also available.

Schaller is a wonderful resource and the S-Locks make my strap secure and match the gold hardware on my new Eastman ER3.

Seems like an improvement over earlier models

By

Verified Buyer


I have the older model Schaller straplocks on most of my electric guitars, and I've loved them overall. The strap button screw has a tendency to work itself loose from the guitar in mahogany bodies, so I simply drilled out the area, and inserted an oak dowel to mount it in. They stay put now!

Anyways, the new model seems like it works as advertised. It is much quieter than the older model. It never bothered me much except in high-gain+high-volume scenarios; but I certainly welcome the change. It does seem like it was a bit easier to get the strap side of the straplocks installed as well. much less straining, and no need to mar the finish trying to tighten the nut with a pair of pliers. I'm undecided on the necessity and prudence of a locking nut that tightens down over the threaded area of the straplock post, but I just used a very light touch while screwing it down.

Bottom line: I'm happy so far. Hopefully they hold up as well as the older models.

It might be a little premature, I bought these but have not used them yet. With the extra long neck in my opinion there’s no way they can possibly suck. For years I have dealt with trying to put the old style on leather straps and saying the neck isn’t long enough is an understatement, making it a pain to get them on. Lengthening the neck is a welcome change and long-overdue.

Can hold both ends of a strap or a really fat end. I need to make a sling out of my strap for balance reasons. This is the only device that will hold both ends of the strap.

Schaller stepped up again. Always loved there products/designs. Well thought out. The new S-locks makes no noise/rattle when you attach your guitar strap. I will be buying extra sets for my other guitars....Thx......M.

Great locks, but badly flawed button design

By

Verified Buyer


Overall very good functional design and execution for the lock mechanism.

The strap buttons have been redesigned after many complaints relating to the old buttons' use of a #6 screw rather than the more commonly used #8, forcing the user to either drill out the button for a bigger screw or fill-and-drill the guitar.

The new buttons replace that old headache for a brand-new set of problems, unfortunately.

I'm in a manufacturing business, so I well understand the appeal of reduced BOM parts count and ease-of-assembly for the manufacturer. But as a guitar player, I have a couple of criticisms.

The one-piece button/screw lacks application flexibility, meaning, what if I have a guitar that uses a #6 screw? Sure I can drill it out or just bugger it, but if you are trying to protect a multi-thousand dollar new instrument, or an irreplaceable vintage instrument, you might not want to do that-- you need a lock that is adaptable to the screw size already used on the guitar.

The second problem was pointed out already in another review, and could use some amplification. When the lock turns the button during use, with a separate button and screw the button turns the screw until it is loose enough to turn freely—the button is loose but the guitar is still safe. With the new one-piece assembly, the button continues to turn the screw until the screw comes right out of the guitar, not a good selling point when your stock-in-trade is keeping the guitar safe from disaster.

Schaller, are you listening? Ignore these issues at your peril-- many of the people with the most to lose from a bad button design are opinion leaders in the industry. My guess is that it will soon become common knowledge among repair shops, collectors and major players.

At a bare minimum, the old buttons need to be made available; and offering the new locks with two-piece button/screws (another SKU) would be a good gesture, possibly a prelude to removing the offending one-piece buttons from the market.

But what we really need is a button with a #8 hole, offering application flexibility and a free-turning button that will keep the guitar safe with your excellent, quiet lock mechanism.

Great locks, questionable buttons

By

Verified Buyer


I use a thick leather strap so the original locks required a good snugging every other gig. The new locks are fantastic! The pull mechanism was a little stiff and slow to return to the locked position but a quick spray or wd40 made it nice and snappy. The longer shaft works great with a thick strap and the new locking mechanism does not come undone.
The one negative I have found is the strap buttons. The one piece design is nice in theory but the first gig I played with them they came unscrewed during the show. The locks have a very small bit of friction on the buttons which caused them to slowly back out since the screw and button are all one piece. Maybe it's just me having this problem but it was not caused by a stripped hole. I went back to using the original security lock buttons with the new strap locks and that combination is great! Not quite silent like it is using all the new parts but I can not trust the new buttons after that first gig.

Best Strap Locks

By

I've been using the Schaller strap locks for many years now and they have never let me down. They are compatible with factory strap buttons from many Fender, Rickenbacker, and other major manufacturers instruments. The new S-Lock adds more features making the Schallers even better. Much easier to install on to thicker leather straps, and the built-in screws on the buttons make for an easier install on some guitars.

I bought these for my left handed Fender Telecaster and my left hand Gibson ES335 and they work great, would not hesitate to recommend.
