Just recently I got two Ibanez J-custom guitars, both of which came with the Gotoh strap locks.They are this type of strap locks:
I tried to install them to my guitar strap, but it does not seem to be that easy.
The locking-barrel is too big to fit it through the strap-eye.
I can force it through the strap-eye but then there is barely enough thread of the barrel left to put the nut-screw on it.
Does anybody of you have experience with this?
Am I supposed to cut the strap-eye to make it bigger?
That's what i usually do with my Schallers to get them to fit properly for a good snug fit.
