You can hot glue a washer onto your guitar and it works just as well and saves you a lot of money. thats what I thought about doing, but idk yet.

Haha That's actually not a bad idea as far as I can tell but I'd try it on a ****ty guitar first

but I've jsut started looking into strap locks but you can buy some straps with locks built in and then there are ones that actually just hook your strap in and I think you can use any strap but you need screw driver to change straps

the locks I have are designed so that you put it onto the pin and twist part of it so that the hole that you put the pin through is smaller and the pin cannot go through.

thats the kind i have,
and about the hot glue thing... my bassist uses a theory like that. he unscrewed the part u put the strap on and slid a washer threw it then slid then screw part threw the strap the screwed it back on and its just as good i slung it around and its perfect, though a friend of mine that uses that same theory says he uses like duck tape to just make sure it wont pop offf

Sup bro, well bro just buy some locking nuts (and trust me you will figure them right out) a retard could lock the strap in.

peace kel

Simply what you do with straplocks is you replace your guitar strap button's with them. You just unscrew your guitar buttons and screw in your straplocks. Some straplocks screws might be too small for some guitars therefore you need to do the glue + toothpick trick to fit it. I use schaller straplocks and it fits perfectly on my jackson dk2. Hope that helps.

if uve seen a washer used as a lock, they didnt hot glue it. they removed the peg screw and added the washer then strap prior to rescrewing it.
^i think like said.


also like said, when u remove a strap peg screw, it can become loose a little while after u return it.
a quick fix is the adding toothpicks to the hole, then rescrewing in thru the toothpicks to get a grip.

dunlop makes a disc that slips over the strap peg, costs $2. (its pictured last below.)


the other three pics shows me removing the smaller pegs and replacing them wt schaLLER locks. they click on and off.

in pic 1. i removed the screw holding the two smaller pegs.
they are laying next to the 2 larger locks.
(each larger lock, is actually a 2 pc locking system)

in pic 2, i screwed on the female lock part into a generic strap hole.

in pic 3, i already screwed in the larger male peg into the guitar, and there i am clipping the female part (on the strap) to the male part (on the guitar)

the two parts clip (lock) on and off. -with a spring loaded pull off knob, located on the female part.
