Cheap insurance for your guitar
emcgon, 03.10.2018
Since my guitar had an accident followed by an expensive visit to a luthier, strap-locks are a must on all of my guitars. These are copies of the much more expensive Schaller ones that look almost identical.
They are not, however, interchangeable: the sizes are sufficiently different that the strap fitting from this set won't fit a Schaller pin.

My feeling is that they are a bit "chunkier" than the Schaller version: the washer and retaining nut both seem a little thicker and the fittings seems a little bulkier but this is by no means a problem.

You will need a wrench to pinch the nut snugly against the guitar strap. A vice is also handy. Having lost a few of the nuts when they came loose (which can end in disaster), I also like to put a bit of thread-locking compound on the strap fitting to encourage the nut to stay in place. This has worked well.

All in all, these are well made, easy to fit and are remarkable value for money.

Best quality for price
nbonello, 25.10.2018
Have Harley Benton Security Locks on all my guitars, and never once did they fail me. Easy replacement, something anyone can do and they will definitely save alot of heartbreak saving a falling guitar because of a loose strap. Highly recommended for every guitar and bass!

Does the job, but there are better ones in the market.
Fricas, 23.04.2018
They do their job, but the metal used is a little soft. This makes them very easy to damage in their installation or during normal use, in the coupling and decoupling of the guitar.

The system itself in the fastening to the strap can cause the tightening nut to easily come off. which can lead to it falling and getting lost, which is not good.

Verdict: ALL guitars to be used with a strap should include strap-locks.
These fulfill the function for a light use at home or small band rehearses, however for more regular and intensive use, I would buy more expensive, higher quality ones, to have more peace of mind in its use.

Strap Locks for the entire family!
general_dög, 28.04.2016
As you read the title, yes, I got them for my brother and for my father. Their straps are new and not used, my father did an excellent job for almost receiving an heart attack. I don't know how he managed to twist his strap around that it managed jump off the strap knob. He did saved the guitar just by grabbing the neck, but the shock and emotional stress was too much for a person of his age. Lucky for him next day he had an massage therapy the next day, the therapist asked him why are his muscles so tense, that he should try and relax.
I know this doesn't have anything to do with the review of this item, but I want to point out that strap locks can prevent heart attacks, muscle spasms, stress, and even depression. I bet you would feel sad for destroying your guitar. So I got a pair for my brother so he won't experience such things.
My father uses Harley Benton CST-24HB guitar, I know, HB is cheap, but burning away money for nothing is still a waste.

Anyway, the straps look and feel nice and, what's important, safe.

So if you want prevent such discomforts, just buy these things already!

They work as advertised
ultz, 15.10.2018
If you don't want to spend more money on a strap locks than on a strap itself, then get these. The locking mechanism (pull-pin) is not as tight as the one on the fenders for example, but it is still adequate for its job, and there is no excessive wobble.

I wouldn't say that the metal is softer than on the more expensive strap locks. It feels, weights and looks exactly the same.

As for the screws, I used the ones that came with my guitars, as there was no way they could interfere with a locking mechanism. There was still plenty of room left.

And with a price like this you don't have an excuse for not using a strap locks on your guitar.

Great bang for the buck and works with my existing schallers!
Bo E., 24.04.2019
What can I say, must be one of the cheapest strap lock sets out there but it does what it has to do and looks and feels sturdy.
The fact that it's compatible with my existing schaller straplocks on all my other guitars and straps just makes this absolutely perfect for me!

Becoming a real Harley Benton fan, they have so much awesome products for a low price!

Must-have for guitars and basses
Silverwake, 17.07.2017
Security locks are a must-have for any electric guitar or bass as they lock the strap to the instrument so it won't drop out of the blue.
I found these secuity locks just as good as the ones I had bought previously (Jim Dunlop).
These locks are the type that you have to pull away before lifting, which I find much easier to use than the ones you have to push or twist to release.
The Harley Benton Security Locks come with long screws to attach them to the guitar, and they are pretty thick (thicker than the average screws the guitar comes with), so you'd want to install them carefully not to crack the wood of the body of the instrument. My bass had had some other security locks that had even thicker screws. To solve this, just insert a toothpick in the hole of the bass/guitar and screw on the new ones.

All in all, these security locks are of the highest quality and never let me down. I've bought a few more overtime to use only the part that's attached to the strap to be able to swap them easily.

Just what they should be.
Kev in Kent uk, 01.10.2018
I ordered these along with a Harley Benton paisley telecaster as all of my guitars have security strap locks, here is what I have found.

When opening the package they are very well made and the finish is as should be, they are a substantial weight and size (not always the case with other brands) as they should be because they are meant to stop your guitar falling on the floor.

I put them straight on my new guitar and have giggled 2 times over the past weekend, they done there job and I am very happy with them. My advice, buy them and keep your guitar safe, they are good quality and value for money.

Raccomended
Paolo1456, 19.08.2015
The installation of this product is pretty easy and you won't really require an instruction booklet, in fact it is not attached to the packaging. You have just to unscrew your guitar's old screw, and change everything but not this ones. If you keep the original screws and soft pads, as I did, I think it is less "stressful" and safer for your instrument.
It is suitable both for strat and single cut guitars, and they work perfectly. In my opinion it is really useless wasting money for more expensive products because you won't need anything more than a good and safer strap lock.

I cannot tell the difference between these and the Schallers!
jianwhite, 12.04.2017
I have been using Schaller Strap locks for years. I bought a set of these recently, with a cheap guitar, out of curiosity.

I cannot tell the difference! I use a strap with a Schaller fitted to it, which I swap from guitar to guitar. Harley Benton and Schaller are perfectly inter-changeable. I honestly cannot tell the difference, apart from the fact that they only come with one size set of screws, whereas the Schallers have two sizes. They also come with the felt protective washer.

I would not be surprised if they are made by the same factory!

These from Thomann are the cheapest AND best quality straplocks I have found. Save your money and buy these. I will be from now on and I have been using Schaller's for many years.

Very good
Antonis A., 24.09.2013
I used to buy the expensive ones, Schaller, Warwick, etc. and I discovered that H.Benton are better, additionally they have more twists and you can bolt both washers for more safety. I put them on my 4 strats and I am pleased. For this price you can easily get one more, if one gets loose or broken, but I don't think this will ever happen.

Could not be better for the money!
lkovacs464, 27.12.2018
For short, they're awesome! They have a bit small screws, but it can hold up for sure. They were a little greasy when I got them, but I just wiped them down. I've already installed them on two guitars, and it was pretty easy, except stretching out the straps hole to fit it on the lock... :D I can only recommend them!

Why pay more
Paul1800, 11.02.2017
I've bought these before with a different name on the package. To my mind, there is little difference in design or quality. I have four sets and they have not failed yet, although I don't jump around as much as I used to given my age! I'd recommend these to anyone, I don't know how they do them at these prices.

Great quality, fantastic value!
09.06.2015
I recently purchased a new bass, and wanted to put straplocks on it. I already had two basses which had Schaller straplocks on them, and I use the same strap on them both and wanted to use this on my new bass two - so Schaller seemed the logical choice - until I found these

I was ordering some other items from Thomann, so it made sense to order these at the same time. They were far cheaper than the Schaller equivalent, and from the photos at least looked like the same thing. I thought it was worth a go.

Upon receipt, I compared both the strap button and compared to my existing strap-locks - they look very similar but not 100% identical. However, they are entirely compatible - both the strap and the buttons.

The screw that was supplied was slightly shorter and narrower than what was provided on my Lakland bass. Even though it still felt okay when just screwed in to the hole, I used the old cocktail stick and glue method to give an extra bit of security.

Top notch straplocks!
16.02.2017
Decided to give them a shot due to the really bargain price and it was a very good decision - they're the same as Warwick/Schaller locks, 100% compatible. They're of very good quality/craftsmanship, absolutely no issues with them whatsoever. Will defnitely buy again!

Great to have and to use
Y.Kawaguchi, 05.12.2017
Strap locks are always necessary to have for a guitarist and these do the job exceptionally well, especially at the price that I had paid for it. Though this is my first time getting strap locks of this kind. I only found that the distance between the strap and the body to be a bit far making me worried that the strap pin would tear up. Aside from that, the pulling mechanism works beautifully, installation was a breeze and it looks very nice.

Pros:
- Inexpensive
- Robust
- Easy Install
- Works really Nicely

Cons:
- Straps are set far from the body

Absolute bargain!

I got these strap locks with a larger order to have as spares (I have dunlop ones on my electric) and I have to say they are just as good as the dunlop ones for a fraction of the price. I'll be getting more of these with my next order!
