Very easy to install; just unscrew the old strap buttons and screw the new ones in. I've used them for a couple of years now and they've never failed me.

Yes it's easy, you can do it yourself. This should go in the GB&C forum, though.

Easy as breathing. If you can use a screwdriver and not make a pigs ear of the screw you'll be fine

I had them on my Cort A6 and they're on my C4 now, best money i ever spent

i love my Schaller locks! if the screws for the strap buttons fit tight, your set. if the new screws are smaller than your originals, you may have to fill in the holes and
re-drill new holes, but thats no big deal. if that happens, just ask and we'll give you some options on that process. good luck!

don't freak out, it's an easy process. and no, you don't have to literally "re-drill" the holes. buy the Schallers and see if they fit, if not, we can have you up and running in a day. no big deal.

if the hole is too big for the screws do this...

dip a match/toothpick/kebab skewer in PVA glue, shove it in the hole, and snap the excess off. leave to dry, then put the new screws in. simple!

i use shallers and as long as you check everything from time to time, they shouldnt fail you

other questions guys
my current strap is a really old ibanez(2 year)
if put the straplock with that strap can i change the strap later or will that strap remain there?
i really want a nice strap but in peru is hard to find any good strap withouth an extreme overprice
and the only strap that i like and is not really overpriced is always buyed so fast that i cant buy one so i just have to wait until new straps arrive and be the first in buy them

if you have a heavy bass, a wide one is better, fairly stiff leather stops it folding up and hurting too
