I always had standard strap locks for my guitars whether it's bass or electric guitar. Well, before this one i used standard fender telecaster american deluxe strap locks. And those are definitely suck in comparison with these strap locks. First thing first the colour. It comes in three colours: Black, Chrome and Nickel. Me personally chose black one. And it would look amazing on any guitar you put those on. It comes with it's own screw driver so it's not that hard to install it. It also says that it can pull out force above 220 lbs, at least sounds cool. And yeah it says no rusting which is really good, because i heard some stories that standard strap locks can rust after couple of years. At least i can say it 100% in couple of years. So finally do i recommend these strap locks? 100% yes. May be there are some good strap locks to choose, but you won't definitely lose if you get these one. It looks cool, strong, comfortable and you don't need to worry if it's fell out which is usually classic story with standard strap locks. With these one you can just forget about these things.
