Straplock question

I've been looking for some straplocks for my guitars/bass for a while, and these are the three that I've narrowed it down to:
http://www.thomann.de/es/marvel_sec...k_system_bk.htm
http://www.thomann.de/es/fender_str...fslb1_black.htm
http://www.thomann.de/es/warwick_se...raplocks_bk.htm
I'm on a real tight budget...considering I'm a high school student. These are pretty much what I can afford. I want to know which is the best purchase or, if there are any better ones around the same price.
Thanks

What about Schaller?

The warwick look like Dunlop style and I use the Dunlop straplocks and they are great.

You can't really go wrong with straplocks. Anything's more solid than just the strap on its own. I've done "guitar flips" and stuff with these and they hold just fine. One thing I would advise is to fill the hole with match sticks and a drop of wood glue when installing them, to make sure the screw gets a better grip.

I looked into schaller, and they're a bit out of my range. I'm buying 3 sets, so yeah..

If you're on a really tight budget, you could just use screws and washers. You'd need 3 straps, though.

Or eye bolts and carabiners.

I'm looking to spend more than 10 euros, cause the first ones i bought were about 5/6 and they haven't worked out too well, but every product won't work for SOMEONE....so I'll look into 'em more
