With reference to the thread title, that's what I dont ever want to do.

To avoid that, I got the Dunlop Strap Locks.


I have a Fender Strat, & one this is i dont know how to install these strap locks! im scared that i'd make a mistake & screw up my guitar.

It's not the part where you put the straplock to the guitar strap, but actually screwing the other half into the guitar.

Any help?

I got these plastic strap locks that NEVER come off, but can be taken off in an easy 5 seconds, and put back on in an easy 2 seconds.

Should gotten those, doesn't take skill to use. I don't know how I can help you here.

you unscrew it, and screw it back in, pretty simple, theres no way you can mess it up

Yeah just take it to the shop, thats what I did, they won't charge you for screwing and unscrewing two bolts and they'll probably even show you how to put them on the strap.

I personally use these strap-locks and highly recommend them! They can hold up 300lbs, apparently!

unscrew the original strap holder thingie

and screw in the new one

then tighten the clamp thing around your strap after putting it on the guitar

you screw the back into the guitar as a normal strap button

then, you put the strap

then you screw the top over it

and that's it

if you have a good strap, you'll probably never need a strap lock

should have gotten the schallers. Just use the original screws to advoid stripping. If nessesary, you may need to use a drill to alter the size of the hole on the lock.

Where would you happen to find these magical strap locks that you speak of?

Some brands of the strap locks use a smaller size screw than is used for the regular buttons. So if iits loose now it will be even worse. The little plastic ones work pretty good. You can buy about 5 or 6 of em for the price of a set of strap locks.
