So I just started using Schaller straplocks on my AmStd J, and it wasn't long (maybe a month) before the strap button on the upper horn started working itself out of the bass. Now the whole thing is stripped, and pulled out in a cloud of sawdust. I did some searching around on here, and got a few good ideas on how to fix the strap button itself, so that's not the problem. What I want is suggestions on is how to keep this from happening again. The way I see it, I have a couple of options: 1) try a different brand of strap lock - which I considered, but since the J came with Schaller-ready buttons, that was the most logical type of strap lock to use 2) try moving the button to another spot to change the angle at which the strap hangs and pulls on the button - is this a good idea? should I move it up or down? 3) try a different strap - ?? logically it doesn't sound like it should have been the strap's fault, but you never know. Normally I use a Comfort Strapp, which has a lot a give to it anyway. Anybody had this same problem and know a good fix for this? Is there something I can do with the strap lock itself, like bending the washer so it doesn't pull so hard at a weird angle to the horn, or something like that? I don't want to have to keep regluing the strap button all the time, or worry about my bass suddenly taking a dive during a gig. Your help would be appreciated.
