Bought my Epiphone Annihilation V yonks ago. Got it serviced last year. My issue is my Epiphone strap lock doesn't click. So I think I have sheered the U part of the lock. I am wondering if the current stock issued by Dunlop and Fender will work universally if I unscrew the main pivot screw from my guitar? Or... Do I need the same Epiphone strap lock.

Btw - As an additional note its fun as heck to thrash on a guitar thats bust the strap lock....... for like 45 secs of uncontrollable fury... and then... Well help is appreciated on the above.

if it is Schaller style (which most fender locks are) you can get one of these, they are cheaper and I have had no issues at all (they come in black,chrome,gold)

I have ordered lots from that seller and always get my items very fast

My Epiphone 1960 Tribute Plus came with the Epi strap locks. I think they suck. I used them for a few months and just took them off and put on Schaller's like my other guitars. You can't tell if they are locked or not. I don't trust them.
Yes I am guitarded also, nice to meet you.

I wouldn't bother trying to salvage the existing locks. Put on a set of Dunlops or Schallers and buy a set for every guitar you own while you're at it and you'll thank me later.

And well yes, I'll enjoy the carpal tunnel and tendonitis, because trying to get one is clearly smarter than any word you have spoken thus far.

Every single one of my guitars I have ever had has had dunlops on them.
Never a problem.

The only issue you may have is the screw size. I had to get a larger screw for one guitar when I put new locks on.

That's actually a good thing.

The bigger screw will require a lot more force to be pulled out of the wood, so it makes the whole thing more secure.

Dunlop or Schallers sounds like a good choice then.

Cheers.
