Think of them as insurance on your precious guitar. After all, there are plenty of horror stories from folks that did employ them. Their importance became painfully clear to me when I dropped my Strat right on the nail of my big toe while rehearsing bare feet. That was not a fun day, to say the least… Unfortunately, this is mostly understood by folks that have had a guitar plunge to the floor while playing. When this happens, your precious guitar will likely suffer damage. The extent of said damage can vary, but I can assure you from personal experience that it is never pleasant. The screws equipped in the set are smaller than the standard Gibson screws, which can cause difficulty for you.

Directly drilling holes for the strap pins will ruin your ascosutic if you do it wrong. this is why I advise you to drill at least two pilot holes at the correct position. You need to pay attention to the size of their diameter. Particularly, the diameter of the pilot holes should not be too large, or else, the screw will be loose in the hole. By making the holes slightly smaller than the screws, will make the screws fit nice and tight. In our tests, we really liked how the 360-degree design felt as we moved around our practice space. It gave us freedom of movement while we felt confident that our strap was being held securely in place. Of course, with such a low price, you will have to accept some trade-offs. Particularly, its screws length are smaller than the holes on the guitar and the button’s nut may gradually loosen overtime.

Why Do I Need a Guitar Strap Lock and Strap Button?

The first one is a straightforward rubber washer that is placed over your strap and onto the guitar strap button. It has the advantage of being remarkably affordable. This adapter can be simply removed at any time that you do not need it, and therefore helps you avoid permanent modifications.

The end-pin is the component that the guitar strap clips onto. However, it does not always hold your guitar securely and your guitar may slip and if you don’t catch it, it will land on the floor and break. It is important to mention that although this two-piece design is more involved than adding a simple rubber washer, they are still convenient. They only take a few minutes to install on your guitar and it is a simple process that does not take much more than common sense. That said, for some folks, two-piece systems may seem bulky and add an unpleasant visual element to your guitar. Although this is largely personal, not all two-piece systems look the same, and there are some that are stylish. So, here are seven options for you to consider, plus a free cost suggestion, to keep your guitar off the floor and where it belongs.
