Except I've seen those pull out the strap buttons on a number of guitars after a while.I dont get the appeal of Schaller straplocks? Every guitar I've ever got my hands on with these things feel rattly and un-solid!
I prefer these, it makes a rock strap connection that doesn't rattle!
I know people who swear by them, but this has been my experience as well. I've had three sets installed with the factory screws, two of which ripped out and one of them that became very 'rattly' and I swapped them out before it could get worse. I'm also not a big fan of the strap have the metal 'locks' on them, because I'll frequently detach my strap and put it in my case, and when I was running the Schaller locks, I noticed a few times the strap rattled around in the case and scratched the guitar.I dont get the appeal of Schaller straplocks?

Aren't these rattly too?I don't know about anyone else, but ever since Clemenzi showed me the Planet Waves straplock when it first came out, I've never bother with anything else
Hell, mine was signed by Satriani and I've had it so long it faded off back to normal :lol:
There's Dimarzio cotton cliplocks. They are awesome and makes guitar sit well in place.I absolutely despise Cliplocks, since it forces you to use nylon Dimarzio straps. I don't like how nylon straps slide around compared to leather, and the plastic clips look cheap on a guitar. I also don't understand how someone can complain about the metal locks on the strap moving around in the case scratching a guitar, but the plastic clips rubbing the finish off a guitar is OK?
If that thing is gonna pull those out, either somebody is torquing them WAAAY too hard (and I dunno how the plastic isn't dying at that point), or the screws are too short to begin with. Strap buttons should have long assed screws (longer than anyone really uses, sadly) whenever possible.Except I've seen those pull out the strap buttons on a number of guitars after a while.
Doesn't seem complicated to me - longer threaded barrel and more "space" for thicker straps, a simpler thumb wheel with set screw for attaching the strap piece instead of the washer and nut, seems like nothing but improvements to me without making things any more difficult?Just looked at the new version of the Schallers, wtf complicated ass shit is this?
