Customer Reviews

Best straplocks I ever ownedThese straplocks are longer than the original Schaller. I use thick straps. They never come apart. There is also a locking screw on the nut. I bought these for both of my strats and love them. They come with a slightly thicker mounting screw. The straplocks connect easily and pop off easily. My latest build has black tuning machines and black Lace pickups and the black straplocks look great. When considering the purchase some reviews stated people were afraid of changing the screws out on vintage guitars that it may devalue the instrument but for me it wasn t an issue.5The new Schaller S-locks are better than the older lock, but beware of the larger button screw size.I would have rated Schaller S-Locks with five stars, except for the problem with new button screw. I have Schaller locks on all my guitars (Electric and Acoustic) and they work great. I upgraded a couple of acoustic guitars to the new Schaller S-Locks. Schaller says the button screw can be put into the existing Schaller button hole, but that is not the case. The new button screw is much longer and thicker than the previous screw. So you either must drill out the existing hole, while being careful the new screw it not too long now. Or do like I did and buy the older button and screw (I changed from silver to black and needed to match). I did not want to make the hole larger, and concerned the screw is now too long. I hope Schaller upgrades the new button screw to a smaller size to make it more compatible with installing in guitars, so that the screw hole will not be so long and large in diameter.4Why aren't these standard hardware on all guitars?!I recently got back into playing and bought a brand new Jackson JS32 Dinky. I also purchased all the support equipment and hardware for it... except for the strap locks. As luck would have it, while wearing my guitar, my signature pointed Jackson headstock almost had a cataclysmic encounter with my hardwood floor as the strap popped off its lug at the horn. I thank my video game honed reflexes for catching it less than an inch from impact.I ordered the Schaller S-Locks in black chrome. The finish is a perfect match to the guitar's beautiful native hardware as seen in the photos. The replacement lugs screwed in effortlessly with high quality self-tapping wood-screw threads. I was able to turn them in using one of the hex keys Jackson provided to tune the Floyd Rose bridge. In the end, the lugs look like the guitar came from the factory with them already on. Time to install them, maybe two-three minutes tops.The install problem came with the strap posts. As shown, I have a leather strap, and the holes were far too tight to fit the post through without warping the strap. Thus, I spent an hour slicing and shearing away at the holes to expand them just enough to nicely fit the posts. If I had to install more of these, I would buy a properly sized leatherworking punch to make the task clean and simple.Everything attached, the straps click on almost effortlessly, and are thoroughly impossible to remove without pulling the release. They are silent and best of all, provide that peace of mind that my guitar will stay on my shoulder and not meet an unfortunate end. As my title suggests, these things should be standard hardware on ALL guitars. If you are a first time guitar buyer, you really want to get a set of these. They are a perfect, tiny example of amazing, well thought out engineering.5Beware black chrome Schallers.I use Schaller strap locks on all my guitars. They are great and in over 20 years I have never had a failure with Schallers.My beef with this particular order is the color. They are supposed to be black chrome... a popular color for guitar hardware right now. The straplocks i received are not remotely the same shade of black chrome that I have on two Ibanez's and a Dean guitar. They just look like a very shiny black.I am going to keep them because they will serve their purpose but don't think these are going to match your black chrome hardware... they won't.The attached photo shows the difference between the Schaller (held in my hand) and the stock black chrome Ibanez button.2The new 'S locks' pictured were not what I received.I have used Schaller Straplocks since they were first introduced. IMO, they are the best! The only reason I'm giving this 1 star is that I had ordered the new 'S Locks' which were pictured when I placed the order. But I received the old version straplock. This was the second time it happened, so I gave up with Amazon and ordered directly from another source.Again Shaller straplocks are the best, but what I received was not what was pictured. These were easily returned and I was credited, so I'm satisfied. And BTW, the new S Locks are great!1Work great, but they're not the ones pictured...I use Schaller straplocks on all my guitars, they're secure and durable. These were no exception... stuck them on my new Ibanez and they work like a charm.As a note - the straplocks I received DO NOT match the pictures for this product. They are the same kind that Jaime Rojas posted a picture of: old style Schallers in the smaller blister pack, with black coloring... they are not the ones pictured for this product, which look to have a circular lockdown instead of the old washer and nut, and there was no plastic box like is shown in the picture.They still work fine and do what I wanted, however they're technically not what is pictured, so if you're expecting these exact ones, be warned.4Secures Guitar and Easy to UseI've seen reviews where some have had a problem with these. Some couldn't get the strap off their guitar, some split the wood, etc, etc. Common sense will prevail.First, learn to use it BEFORE you install it on your guitar. When you get it, examine it and understand how it works. All you do is pull out on the end of the lock and slide it off the button. So easy and yet it's a positive lock that won't come loose, until you're ready to remove it.Second, examine the screw and drill the wood first, if necessary. Trying to use the screw as a 'self tapping' screw will surely give you bad results. After all, you're going into hardwood.The other thing I saw was, it won't work on leather straps. This is NOT TRUE. I have leather straps ... good leather straps ... and the Schaller works just fine ... without me having to cut them. Yes, there was a bit of a 'pucker,' but that flattened out once I screwed down the straplock onto the strap.I use these on my heavy, Gibson Les Paul and there are absolutely no problems. If you're unsure about installing them, ask someone you trust to install them.They are so easy to use. You don't have to worry about the strap coming off the button and your guitar hitting the floor. Strapping-up and unstrapping is a one-handed operation ... and quick.You're going to like them, once installed.5Quality manufacturing, silentFantastic strap locks. Obviously, a company like Schaller puts out a high quality product. Be advised, like many other reviews point out, black chrome is merely just a gloss black, not the smoked-out chrome look that some manufacturers refer to as cosmo black . I would prefer these be available in that color as well, but they still look great.The use of an Allen key is an interesting choice for the strap buttons, but they installed just fine for me on 3 Ibanez S guitars. These also come with felt rings as a buffer between the metal of the strap buttons and your guitar.The locks install on the strap with ease. A small screwdriver will be necessary to tighten a set screw on the nut of the lock.The locks with the provided buttons are manufactured to a tight tolerance leaving very little room for the locks to wiggle and cause unwanted noise, but still the locks rotate smoothly and freely around the buttons.Can t go wrong with these.5Bad Design - Some guitars won't take the lack screw.Schaller has STOPPED SELLING these strap locks (without warning) with the ability to swap out the Schaller wood screw with the screw installed by the guitar maker.Instead, they've made the lock ONE solid piece, and no ability to swap the screws.I tried installing these on my PRS, but the Schaller screw only went in 3/4 of the way.I'm not going to risk losing a guitar over a poorly designed strap lock. Unfortunately for me, I purchased 3 sets. 1Great for a standard applicationI just ordered 2 more of these. They look great, they work great, and they are easy to install. I have three guitars to set up but only ordered one because I wasn't sure how it worked. There were a lot of reviews about how good they are, but not a lot about the mechanism itself. The little round knob that is shown in the image is actually spring loaded and when pulled releases the strap from the guitar, meaning it is locked on and will not come off unless intentionally released. At first I thought the small rounded knob was difficult to work, but then I realized that was the point. Being round means it won't easily snag on things like clothing and cables, so yes, it is a little cumbersome, but in a good way. So why didn't I give five stars?The paint on the black ones scratches very easily. I had read this and was expecting it, which is why I had a Sharpie on hand.The instructions tell you to cut away the overlapping pieces of the guitar strap. Doing this will ensure that your strap will not be properly secured to your guitar should you remove this item later. So, If you have a collectors item or don't feel comfortable with that, then you shouldn't order this product.The Product uses smaller diameter screws going into the body of the guitar than the my original strap pins, which means that you will have to use the longer screws because the short ones supplied won't tighten, and the original screw that from your strap pins won't fit through the hole on the new hardware.There is no supplied hardware to cover an existing hole (as in a hole used to double as a pick jack/strap pin). This is the case of my Martin acoustic. I decided to mount a new strap pin behind the pickup so I can have both, but I rarely plug in my Martin and would have simply taken the pickup off if it had been an option. It would have been nice if they had thrown in a matching washer and machine nut/bolt in addition to the wood screws.So there are a few minor inconveniences, but the bottom line is the same as the top line.I just ordered two more of these.4
