As soon as I got my Les Paul I immediately put these on both it and my
Tele. I wasn't gonna take any chances with a 2 grand guitar and these
have been great. I'd definitely recommend you put some kind of strap
locks (doesn't have to be these) on any expensive guitar. These are a bit
pricey but they're a LOT cheaper than fixing a broken headstock!!

Made in Germany so they're probably pretty good quality. They feel pretty
solid and should last a long time.
Well worth the money. Prevents involuntary strap releases. Also prevents post "pulling" when installing and removing heavy leather straps with tight holes. On the down side; release knob can be a bit difficult to grasp and pull, components only available as full sets (would like to see posts sold seperately).
