I own a couple of vintage guitars (1972 Gibson Dove and a 1988 Martin D-35)and am very careful about straps, I did not want to install a button and drill through the wood. I found this quick release system wonderful and feel secure using it.
Its simple to use very inexpensive and has lasted over a two year period of constant use.
Highly recommend.
By the way I have not had a problem with strap slipping from my shoulder.

I wanted to put a strap on a borrowed guitar to avoid accidents. Since I did not want to alter the neck, I decided to try this. It was very easy to install, and looks neater than laces. I think it's also safer than knots, and can be removed easily if need be. It doesn't interfere with my hand, and I can still leave the strap on when I put the guitar in its case. Just what I needed.

Every acoustic guitar should have one of these. Much stronger than shoe lace, no knots, quick release, easy to attach, and cheap.

Plastic is not flimsy and looks like it will last a long time.

I have one of these on each of my acoustic guitars. I leave my straps on my guitars so one of the major benefits of the product I am not taking advantage of. For awhile I had straps beefy enough that I had to remove the straps before putting them in the hard case. These are a good idea for doing that.

The real advantage I find besides them being more secure than the shoestring is they move that strap end away from the fretboard. I find this knot and strap end a distraction.

The three advantages of this product are:

1). Eases removal of the strap.
2). More secure than the "shoelace"
3). Moves the end of the strap away from the fretboard.

It is a great idea. It is well made. I have purposely tried to pull them apart to test it before I put it on the guitar and they are very strong.

My acoustic guitar, a Yamaha FG 700S (as well as other Yamaha acoustics), only have one strap button: on the bottom of the guitar. Thus, if you wish to use a strap, you will need to either tie a piece of string to the area between the headstock and neck (which could scratch up your guitar and be a pain to constantly tie and untie) or get this product. Its loops are made of a soft nylon that won't scratch your guitar neck and the clip makes removing your strap a breeze. This product combined with the Ernie Ball nylon strap was the perfect length for me right out of the box.

Simple enough, right? Works as advertised. A great simple idea that I'm glad someone put into production. For my taste, the loop is too long where it wraps around at the headstock/nut area, so I just tied it up snug. I had been using the Martin leather strap holder where your strap hooks onto a plastic button, and this is far more secure because straps sometimes work their way off of the button on the Martin holder. However, folks with brand new shiny expensive guitars might want to take note: while the nylon lace that wraps around is nice and strong, it is fairly rough and abrasive, and my experience is that it will very definitely wear at the finish of your git in that area. Won't rub the finish off or anything to that degree, but if you're freaky squeaky clean about maintaining cosmetic perfection on your guitar (which I am NOT), you will definitely notice the finish rubbed and dulled and even chipped a bit there at points of contact. I can think of a million simple solutions to that, but that's another story. Overall, great little item.

This thing rules. Many a music salesman have tried to sell me those button and strap apparatuses, which cost more and aren't as quick to release as this. Planet Waves really hit the nail on the head with this one. It goes with any strap, is sturdy, and is true to its "quick release" tagline. And it ships free on Amazon! The cost-benefit analysis is a no-brainer here

This little thing does it's job. Two separate pieces, one loops around the headstock, one around the strap, then they've got a little plastic clippy that latches the two together. No tying, quick and easy to connect or disconnect.

I've been using these on my acoustic guitars (and straps) for over a decade. They're sturdy and convenient, and so much more attractive than adding a shoelace to your strap. The ability to quickly disconnect the strap for storage (or when you don't need the strap hanging from your guitar, e.g., sitting in a chair) works exactly as advertised. I've purchased several of these and can't say enough good things about the product and company!

First let me say I'm an absolute beginner, so take my word with a grain of salt. When I bought my Yamaha guitar and asked the salesman where the other end of the strap goes, I was surprised when he said you tie it to the headstock with laces. Just sounds pretty shoddy and undependable. This item is so much better than trusting your knots. Easy to install and remove, and seems very sturdy. I haven't had much use for it yet, but I'm glad I have it available. I've been impressed with everything I've bought from Planet Waves.
