If you use a strap at all with your acoustic guitar this item is for you!!!
Before I share with you a product that could potentially save your guitar’s life let me offer up three important tips:
Tip #1 – Always make sure your guitar is hanging correctly from your strap. Sometimes the ends can flip and when the guitar tries to hang it literally can just fall out of the strap.
Tip #2 – When using a cord with your acoustic guitar, always wrap the chord in the strap so if for any reason you step on the cord it will pull the strap and not your input jack.
Tip #3 – Never leave your strap on your guitar when it is resting in a stand. It can catch on a passerby and pull your guitar right off the stand.
Now on to the product that will really help when using a strap, plastic strap locks. These slip over the strap buttons on your guitar and create a barrier so the strap won’t fall off. There are two here that I like; one is the Dunlop product that are two plastic discs that spin and the other is a rubber gasket type material that is good for oddly shaped strap buttons or bulky straps.
