Hm, it seems that there have been complaints on both sides about Dunlop and schaller?
I , Myself never cared for Schaller Strap Locks...
Good old Rubber washers work for me... Strap is on there solid.
A lot cheaper too...
There's nothing wrong with the original Schallers. If they're coming loose for you guys it's because you don't know how to work basic hand tools.
Looks like these new ones address those issues. I’ll get a set and an extra button set, I’ve only got 2 guitars to do.
FIFY. I know you can't possibly mean that absolutely everyone who's had a bolt come loose doesn't know how to use basic hand tools. That would make you arrogant, and we know that can't possibly be true.
Hey, I'm not the one with nuts and bolts coming loose and dropping guitars.
It can happen to anyone, part of my pre-gig maintenance was to make sure my strap lock nuts were snug. Could have used a drop of loc-tite but hadn’t heard of it back then. This new one can be snugged with the Allen key and has a set screw so should be good to go.
I wasn’t implying that you don’t know how to use tools, sorry.
I only use Schallers. They are nice and compact compared to Dunlops and they have that little cup that the guitar side slides into so theres no way the guitar can slip out of it if the cups are pointed up.
I had the nut loosen one time, it did not come off completely, so I cranked it tight with a wrench and its been fine, never has come lose again...issue solved.
If players cant tighten the nut properly then how they gonna tighten the set screw properly????
The "little cup" is the best part of Schallers in my opinion*. Even if they didn't lock, the guitar is pretty secure in those cups. Unless you're doing some lame-ass cheesy C.C. Deville around-the-world guitar swings, the guitar is not falling out.
*For Vinsanity so he doesn't cry
Well now my friend even yours came loose once and you figured it out, maybe there’s hope for others? ;-)
There has been a Schaller/Dunlop debate since the birth of the internet.
Most straplock horror stories ive heard involve user error.
I actually bought Dunlop Straploks this week for £9 on ebay over the Schaller ones because of the problem. I thought Dunlops will get the job done and it was a good price and i could avoid any problems of the Schallers. The S-locks are usually around £17-£25 on ebay.
Schaller and Dunlop seems to be the two best or at least the most popular locks though
