They work

These were bought to use with a Harley Benton ST-20 BK Standard Series. The expectation was that they would be a simple installation, and I supposed that even if the screws that came with it weren't suitable, perhaps we could just use the old screws. However...

The screws that came with these strap locks are smaller, and shorter than the existing ones. And the old screws have bigger heads, which don't fit these strap lock buttons, so weren't usable.

Regardless, they look good, and are a nice upgrade for the cheapest HB guitar. For the price, there isn't much to complain about.

Pros:
- Low cost
- simple operation
- feel secure

Cons:
- supplied screws are slightly smaller than the existing ones, but that will depend on the model of guitar

Overall, I think these are good strap locks for the money. And if you have a €79 guitar, and paying €20+ for strap locks just doesn't seem to make sense, then value is probably the most important consideration.

An excellent guitar strap safety system
Domenicaccio 29.11.2021
The guitar strap security locks by Harley Benton is an inexpensive but excellent solution to stop worrying about dropping your guitar or bass if your strap belt detaches.

I previously had a more expensive famous brand locks mounted on my guitar, but I lost the strap belt, and with it the actual parts of the locks attached to it. I decided to give the cheaper Harley Benton locks a try, and I did not notice any difference with the more expensive brand ones. In addition, I was pleasantly surprised that the Harley Benton locks were perfectly compatible with the guitar-side parts of the locks of the more famous brand which I still had screwed to the guitar body, so I didn't need to replace them, and could use the new ones for a second guitar.

I have been using these Harley Benton security strap locks for over half a year now, and they never failed, so I feel confident enough to recommend them. Mounting them was fairly easy, although I had to very slightly cut (maybe 1mm) the leather around the upper hole in my strap belt to be able to tighten the lock properly. Once mounted, they can be attached/removed pretty much on the fly, and while they aren't perfectly noiseless, the clicking sound is very minimal.

Overall, thoroughly recommended, and looking forward to add these to more guitars and basses in the future: 5/5

As good as Schallers
virtualpatxi 19.09.2020
At a fraction of the original Schallers, they are equally good on every aspect.
Also important is that they are interchangeable with Schallers. I've had some copies from mysterious oriental shops that are not compatible (the original strap part won't fit into the locks on the guitar). No problem with the Harley Bentons.
As an advice, try to use the original bolts if the head fits and the final lenght inside the instrument is enough.
A real smart purchase!

Started using the Schaller straplocks years ago, when i saw these i swapped over because of the price. They work just as good and are on all my guitars.
+) Very reliable. In all those years i've been using them, only 1 broke on me (after taking a beating for 2-3 years): The pin that locks both pieces into eachother fell out, so it could still hold my guitar up fine, but no longer locked the connection.
Another + is that they are interchangeable with Schaller straplocks, so if you're already using the Schaller ones, but looking to get some cheaper alternative for new guitars, your straps will lock in with no problems.
