    You know, I was skeptical but I have to admit they work great on my R9. AND YOU GET TO DRINK THE BEER! The very definition of "Win Win".

    No strap locks used here.

    Dunlop strap locks with the stock PRS screw. The screw head on the PRS screw does not recess into the Dunlop button. I do some slight sanding of the edges and it falls right into position. I figure it is better to slightly modify the screw rather than the hole.

    anyhow...what brought me to this thread...my Brent Mason has the largest strap buttons I have ever seen. Much larger in diameter than the SE buttons. I can't even get a strap over the button. Came here to see if everyone was ok with that but it seems like a 50/50 split on the use of locking buttons.

    I've used Schallers but switched recently to Loxx and so far I like them. I've nearly dropped a guitar sever times which is why I started using them but I have never needed to modify the guitar to make the Schallers or the Loxx fit.

    Meh. Stock strap buttons, particularly those supplied on PRSs, work just fine. The only time in my life I ever had a guitar almost take a catastrophic header was at a gig in about 1981, while straplocks were IN USE. I swore off them that very night, removed the stupid things the next day, and have never had another problem in 33 more years. I really think the key is to replace the strap when the hole starts to wear.

    DiMarzio Clip Lock on all my guitars. Was just using a standard strap but dropped a guitar once and vowed it'd never happen again.
    I gave that pitch some vibrato, pitches love vibrato.

    THE MOST OKAYEST GUITARIST IN THE WORLD!!!

    I had a strap pop off the buttons during a gig (the bassist bumped the head stock and popped it off). The guitar fell and split the head stock. Never again will I have a guitar without them. I have used schaller and Dunlop... Like them both and will use either

    Dunlops on all my electrics EXCEPT PRSi. For them I just enlarge the hole in the strap slightly if it won't fit over the strap button.
