strap locks on rg 570

am i able to put strap locks on an rg 570? i read somewhere something about the screw being really big on the strap button and it was hard to find strap locks that fit that screw. i have a fender american with the schaller strap locks, those would be my first choice to put on. would those fit? which ones fit? or do they all fit

thanks

They all fit if you convert over and use the original button screws that came with your guitar

That is NOT true, i just bought scahaller strap locks for my rg570 and the screws that come with the strap locks are too small for hole in the 570, and i tried to put the screws that came on the guitar and put them through the strap locks and of course the screws were too big!

Stratman,
tighten the screws that came with the strap filling the hole with a toothpick.
this will cause NO problems, even with Vai/Malmsteen-ish guitar-abuse onstage.

I've got the dunlop version of straplocks..The top post(upper horn) has a shallow screw..The original screw won't fit with the new straplock..Should I just tighten it in and make the screw hole longer?? Will this affect the horn..Will it crack?? Or should I drill a small pilot hole???
