All right. I feel kinda dumb asking this. But, I absolutely have to.

I have a Les Paul copy with kinda large strap buttons and a new leather strap(never used one before).

I cannot, for the life of me, get the damn strap on the guitar.

Are there any leather strap professionals out there that can help me with this? The damn hole is tighter than a fetal vagina.

Also, I'm clueless as to how to tighten the strap. It's an Atlas strap if that helps.

I got it like 4 days ago. The hole isn't any bigger than when I started. All I'm doing is tearing the threads near the whole.

Edit - I just managed to get it on my Tele, but that is not the goal here.

I'm starting to think this damn Agile HAS strap locks. It was kinda easy getting it on my Tele this time.

Edit - Now, I can't even get it back on my Tele...

I hate this thing.

Cut the leather a tiny bit. Then go buy some proper straplocks.

get a drill bit a little larger then the whole is and work it through at a slow speed a few times.

if you have some mink oil or leather conditioner you can use that to lubricate things. soap if you're desperate.(if its smoothe leather not like suede)
