These straplocks work great and are the only ones I buy. However if your the kind of person who likes to move around A LOT, like me [ex. jumping, swinging guitar around yourself] . . . you'll run into some problems. I put these straplocks on every guitar I have, and after enough jumping/swinging/w.e. the bottom screw strips itself out, and or bends. I fixed this problem by using glue and jamming little pieces of wood in the hole, so far this has worked, but who knows for how long. My friend plays bass and had the same problem and the glue/wood thing failed. he eventually was forced to drill new holes. So if you like me, be careful, and if you just need the locks simply prevent little accidents get these straplocks.

After using Schaller straplocks on one guitar, I decided to give these a try. While they have yet to let me down, I personally feel these are less secure. The design places the center of weight further away from the body of the guitar, which means that there's a higher possibility of the screw snapping out of the body of the guitar. I also noticed that it is much more of a hassle to take the part that stays on the strap off of the strap (i.e.- to change straps) than with the Schallers. Not a bad product,but not the best out there.

I've been using Dunlop's Straploks for a long time now; anytime I buy a guitar, I always get a set of these strap-locks along with the guitar I'm buying or not too long afterwards.
I bought these because they were name brand and cheap. Well at first they gave me no trouble at all, but now if I play a song with any kind of movement they come unscrewed. I don't know why but it is very frustrating and irritating. I screwed them in last night and broke the flat head of my screw trying to tighten it, and after playing one song it came loose and now I cannot screw it back it. So I'm sad to say I will no longer be using dunlop. And to avoid this kind of trouble get the schallers, yea they're more expensive but it could save you money in the long run.
The first time you install this system, it kind of sucks. But after that, it's easy. I have this system specifically on every guitar I own. The hardest time I've had installing it was when I had to sand down the head of a screw that was in the old strap button so it would fit in this product's strap button. I've found on several guitars that the Dunlop screw was wider in diameter than the old screw. Also, good luck taking the strap lock off of the strap you put it on. I've done it once, and never again. I've never had a malfunction using this product. I know a lot of people who use it. It's great.
I use these on all my guitars. They essential.
The product above is one of the best strap locks one can purchase! I have had mine for years upon years and they work to this day. I know when I put the strap on Gibson Les Paul I can trust the strap locks to do what they are supposed to do every time. Highly recommended to anyone who needs great straplocks for a great price!
Dunlop changed the material they use to make these and they strip extremely easily. Only worked properly on 1 out of the 4 guitars I bought them for. Save your money. Now I've got a bigger mess to fix.
I've used these for years without ever haveing a problem..
Never had a problem with instruments falling off straps, until one gig a couple of months ago, I lost my bass twice in one night. Thankfully, I caught it both times. But you should have seen the band leader snickering between his vocal lines! I looked at where the strap attaches to the strap button, and it wasn't loose; it was falling off for seemingly no reason. Maybe I've developed some new, killer stage move that made it happen - I dunno. Anyhow, I went ahead and ordered these Dunlop strap buttons (gold, to go with the hardware on my Carvin Bunny Brunel), after doing as much research as I could on the different brands and styles. Dunlops looked like the least obtrusive, so I went with them. Turns out they are still pretty big - they make your strap stand out about 3/4 of an inch out from where it used to fall on a normal strap button. This changes the balance of things a bit (also made my long-scale 5-string bass a tight fit in its new flight case), and I don't like it, but I imagine I'll get used to it. Makes me want to design my own, but I'm not a designer, so I'll just live with this and know that my baby will be safe for future gigs. Note to self: Find other ways to make the singer laugh...
To date I have these installed on three of my guitars: a Les Paul, a Rickenbacker, and an Epiphone PR5-E acoustic. I gig several times a month and bought the locks because the strap popped off my Les Paul one night. Fortunately, I was able to catch it before it hit the floor. I added one to the PR5-E to relieve the pressure on the endpin jack. Installation was easy and I have no complaints about the quality. Other locks may cost more, but these work great, look good, and are easy to install. The only complaint I have is that the screws for the locks are larger than the standard screws on my Les Paul and Epiphone.
i love this system its new to me ive been using the schaller system for years and decided to give this a try ... and it seems more sturdy .. they are a little more bulky but i dont mind that
