    perhaps the knurled part has to be retracted or twisted? never heard of 'em either

    I guess I'm dense, but I don't understand that at all.
    If anyone can find a install pdf on the net, that'd be great...I couldn't...

    Thangfish ...overly qualified for janitorical deployment...

    It appears that the knurled part should push or pull... is that part spring loaded?

    I found this:
    The Marvel lock system is designed to easily be put on and taken off the guitars without the need of - Any special tool -. By lightly squeezing the cap on the lower part of it, the system can be easily locked and unlocked.

    Not much help I know.

    However, I believe them to be the same as these Zeppelinn ZSL600 strap locks, which I think I read are made by Marvel:

    They have a website but it is under construction. There is, however an email address and a phone number that may offer some assistance.

    Good luck

    Thangfish; thanks!
    ZZounds actually talked me thru it.
    The button that goes on the bass is a really tight fit to the quick release. It needed some persuasion to come out, but functions fine with the weight of the instrument behind it...
