I'm gonna recommend schaller strap locks. I've had them on my Les Paul for over 5 years now and so far so good! And I agree, the stock Gibson strap buttons are tiny!

Schallers are the best I've used. Too bad they look horrendous.

I had Dunlops on my Les Paul (sold my LP) and they worked fine. I still have them on my other guitars, never had any problems.

This will probably turn out to loads of people saying either Schaller or Dunlop and some people saying they've had product or solution X without any trouble.

As long as you don't get fakes, you should be safe with either Schaller or Dunlop.

^ Real dunlops have failed on me. It's anecdotal, of course, but I've never read anything about Schallers failing.

Shit happens, I'd say.

I've had the release knob on a Schaller come off one once - but it was over 20 years old. The good thing about them is that there's really no failure that the Schaller can undergo which will make you lose your guitar. As long as the nut and washer are locked down firmly on the strap (use two spanners to do it) and the screw is in properly fastened to the guitar, the thing could fly apart and your guitar is going nowhere. It just may be a bit hard to get it off.
I have Schallers on all my guitars and have done so for close to 30 years. Schallers good.

i use dunlops on all mine. never had any problems. i had a set of schallers that kept coming loose no matter how hard or often i tightened them. i much prefer the mechanism to lock the straplocks on the straps. it's hard to get on and off, but it stays on.

I like Dunlop, most strap locks are pre decent and shouldn't give you any problems

I've always found that a shifter on the clip and a spanner on the nut has always allowed me to lock the Schallers down tight. They use pretty good steel, you can lean on them pretty hard. I use leather straps exclusively so maybe that helps.
