You are probably aware of Strap Lock Systems and know how useful they are for protecting your guitar from accidently coming unstrapped and smashing to the floor so lets look at the features of this particular product. Fitting LOXX Strap Locks is a simple procedure, simply unscrew your existing strap buttons and replace them with the LOXX buttons. Due to the design of the LOXX buttons you need to use a spanner to screw in the LOXX strap button and they thoughtfully include a tool that has the precise size spanner necessary pictured below.
Just one word of caution, this tool is small and can easily slip off the nut and scratch your guitar so take care and make sure you don’t rush. Better yet, if you have your own spanner that fits with a long handle you will reduce the chance of it slipping and damaging the finish, but even then take your time it’s not worth rushing and cracking your beloved guitar.
Once you have fitted the strap button you need to fix the easily detachable top part to your actual guitar strap. Now on another system I used this is actually the trickiest part but with LOXX it is really simple. The little spanner doubles up as a special tool to tighten and loosen the clamp and it is a very secure fitting which gave me much more confidence than other strap locks that I have used and I am going to now fit the LOXX system to all of my guitars.
If you are looking for a strap lock system that allows you to use your own guitar straps I think LOXX is the best product on the market at the moment and also probably the least prone to wear out too. This product has been used for decades in the automotive industry so you know that they have been thoroughly road tested (pun intended).
Another bonus of the LOXX Strap Locks is that they are available in a variety of finishes as you can see on their product page.
No more struggling to fit a lock to your strap. No more nuts and washers falling on stage halfway through the performance. LOXX has a one handed “easy on – easy off” engage and release action, Yet can resist a pull-out force of over 220 lbs. LOXX strap lock system is rust proof, and offer (3) year warranty. This, combined with its ability to cover a broad range of strap sizes and thickness, makes it the most advanced and effective strap lock design available.
