Best strap locking system out there! featured

Comments Have you ever had a guitar strap come loose from one of your guitars while you were playing, where the world turns to slow motion as you realize the heel of your guitar is plummeting toward the floor below you. If you're lucky, you catch the guitar before it acquires that dent in its finish. Well, I can tell you that I've been both lucky and unlucky. Peace of mind -- Isn't that what we're all looking for? With the Dunlop Dual-Design Straplok installed on your guitar & strap, that is what you have found. Guaranteed. I'm typically not one to throw my guitar around my body, but I not would be worried if I ever had the desire to do so. I also like the quality of the construction on these. They seem incredibly sturdy. The specs say they've been tested to 800 lbs. of pull, and I believe it.

Installation isn't difficult. It involves removing the original strap pins from your guitar, drilling out the hole just slightly deeper if needed (in case your original strap screw was shorter), and then installing the new Straplok pins with the special screws provided. Then, you attach the strap lock clips to your favorite guitar strap, and you're done. The strap now snaps into the strap pins on your guitar in a VERY secure fashion, using a groove-and-ball design which allows a full 360-degree free rotation of the strap around the pin, but completely secure so that it won't pull out unless you depress the release button. Plus, the pins themselves are flanged such that you can also still attach a standard guitar strap to the guitar as well, so there truly is no downside. (Hence the Dual-Design part of the name.)

For many years now I've been using Dunlop Dual-Design Straploks on my guitars. Available in nickel, gold, brass, and silver colors, they look appropriate on all my instruments. The gold in particular matches the look of the original gold strap pins on my Ibanez JEM-7V guitar perfectly, which is a nice plus. I've tried the Planet Waves locking straps which can attach to any guitar's original strap pins, and while those are very nice as well, the Dunlop Straplok system are just a bit more friendly for quick connect and disconnect.


Liked about it 1. The fact they connect so securely
2. Quality of construction
3. Relatively easy installation
4. Very quick connect/disconnect


Didn't like It would have been nice if installation required absolutely no drilling (i.e. the length of the screw was the same as an original strap pin screw). But honestly this makes the new Dunlop strap pin even more securely anchored so I can certainly understand their logic.

Simply The Best Strap Lock

Comments I have tried them all, and this is the best system design by far. It is simple to use and works perfectly. Quality is excellent. They are available in nickel, black, gold, and brass. To engage the lock, you just push in the top of the strap button, insert into the guitar button, release and you are locked. The can be engaged 360 degrees around, so unlike others you do not have to search for the right angle to slide it together, just push, insert, release, and you are locked. The locking mechanism has never failed me. I also like the fact that when locked the locks easily turn so that the strap sits naturally and allows you to move without any binding. Have a strap without locks installed? No problem your guitar will still be very secure; the buttons are a little oversized to keep your regular strap secure. The dual design basically means that you can either use a strap with the locking mechanism or without. I have switched all of my guitars and straps to this system. Install these and feel confident that you prized guitar is secure. Also, they are very well priced.


Liked about it Secure, quality, price, look, functionality


Didn't like A little hard to install the locks on the strap, but most are.

Jump around with your guitar with a safety locking strap holder!!

Comments I usually uses DiMarzio's clip lock system mostly on my ESP's and Ibanezes but for my other guitars like Fenders and Epis where i would like to use a fender design or other leather straps Ill stick to the Dunlop Dual-Design Straplok System especially for heavy bodied guitars. Its has a the push button for release and lock the the strap, very useful for for a an active musician and studio or home use.


Liked about it it helps securing the guitar
easy to install, the manual is included
affordable and stylish


Didn't like the mounting screw is a bit longer from the pre installed ones on the guiatr , and in some cases if your guit body is a solid maple its relly hard to screw in if you don't have the porper tools otherwise its okey.

Great price, works perfect, looks great!

Comments These are by far the best strap locks I've ever used. The Schaller type stick out really far from your strap button, look strange, and seem to rattle around. You can hear it when recording. They also round out the hole in your strap so it will no longer work with regular strap buttons. The Dunlop strap locks look great, are easy to engage and release, and have enough of a lip on the part that attaches to your guitar, that they can be used with any strap. I love these things, and they are well worth the price considering the price of repairs if you drop your guitar, and the simple piece of mind knowing you are protected.


Liked about it Screws are a little longer then stock, insuring a good grip to the guitars wood
Come in many colors that seem to match stock hardware very well
Offer full rotation, and are easy to pop on and off
Look fairly stock, and don't rattle around


Didn't like The retaining clip can be a little difficult to snap on
If you have a very thick, padded strap, these might not work
Nothing else... its a no brainer.. go buy some!

Decent low-profile strap lock system

Comments Dunlop is always one of those brands that I can trust! I switched to these Dual-Design Straploks about a year after I started using the Schaller strap locks. I was drawn to the low-profile design and simple operation. When installed, the button locks are unobtrusive on the strap--they don't stick out like a sore thumb! A simple push button engages the ball locks for security.


Liked about it I love the low-profile design. They are simple to install and use. The button locks remain secure to your strap without rounding out the strap hole. They come in your typical nickle, black and gold colors--and also GOLD!


Didn't like Nothing! These do what they're supposed to do without sticking out a half inch from your guitar--unlike other brands.
