Gotoh strap locks on j customs

I just bought a rg8570z and it comes stock with gotoh strap locks. I can't find much info on them online. Anyway I'm just wondering how you guys feel about these. I don't like the fact the if they fail there's no secondary safety like Schaeffer locks. I don't really feel like taking a chance on letting this guitar drop as it is a work of art and very expensive. So have you guys kept your gotoh locks on or have you choose n to switch them out with a different strap lock.

I like them. I use them on all my guitars. At least as good as the Dunlops and with the twist release, they're probably a bit more secure, since you have to try to release them.

I like them too... My S2120X has them and I am happy with them.
