I've used a normal strap with leather ends for a long time and i find that the ends where the guitar buttons go in are getting very loose in time and it actually becomes very insecure and it happend for the guitar to slip off of the strap and it's not a happy event i must say :( .
I wanted a strap with an innovative safety system and i have to say this delivers it. i've had security locks on my strap before this and they just went loose as well and it only created me problems .
After those failure of events i wanted the safety ratio to come from the strap only and i'm glad i've found this one
The only thing i have to say is that i hope it's lasting in time , because i didn't have it for a long time . So far , it feels sturdy and good and it has a high safety level but i just hope it lasts as well .
Overall : It's a good strap and the price is not too bad either so for what it does , it's definitely a great choice .
