You can make a free strap lock out of two metal washers so you can do whatever you want on stage and never have to worry about you strap popping off and your new guitar smashing into the ground.

To do this you will need two metal washers, the hole should not be able to fit over where you put the strap on so when you put it all together your strap will stay on.

Here's how to do it: unscrew the screws where you put on the strap then place them in this order from down up

1st- the little felt piece
2nd- place the strap over it so the holes line up
3rd- place the washer over the strap (still keeping the holes lined up)
4th- screw it back together
Then do it to the otherside
All Done!!!

And then you can REALLY ROCK OUT!!!

It works best on a low string, around the 12th fret.

TS,DID YOU REALLY JUST DO THAT?!?!
Do you know how harmful those washers can be to your guitar?
They put off a magnetic field that re-aligns the atoms in the wood of your guitar,slowly causing that part of the guitar to weaken.
If I were you I'd take them off before you have broken guitar horn flying everywhere.

when you take the original screw out of the peg hole, the hole gets larger and the screw, when returned won't fit as tight.

the result can be a peg screw that no longer holds the strap secure.

always add wood and glue to the hole before returning the screw back to the hole.

also, the rubber washers or Grolsch seals work better, like said.
