As I'm sure this has been asked x103481 times...

I bought a set of Dunlop Straplocks for my Flying V today. The screws holding the original strap buttons are much bigger than the ones that came with the Straplocks and they easily slide into the existing hole. The original screws don't fit into the Straplocks either.

I thought about filling the holes with Superglue and re-drilling them to the correct diameter but this seems like overkill. Any suggestions? Usually the holes are too small and I have to drill them out a little bigger but this is a new one

Glue some dowels into the holes (Using wood glue of course), then just redrill and screw in.
Should be a pinch, once you get the glue dried. :p

Is it possible to use the stock screws with the straplocks? And I'm very suprised the stocks were larger...

The stock screws won't even fit into the Straplocks lol. The original ones are massive compared to the Dunlop's

I dont like wood screws too much so I would do this:

Drill out the wood to 8mm
Glue in a metal thread for 3mm
And use an m3 bolt.

Itll look nicer and wont fall out like my pine chinacopy. Same thing also happened with maple.
