    I have Dunlop style straplocks on my bass. The one on the top horn will not release. I can push the button in, but it will not release. Thanks in advance for any help.

    try using a little WD-40 with the little red tube to get down in there. and just keep working it maybe use something to pry at it or pound it off. just be careful and remember that it you won't get it off with out the button depressed.

    lol, remember that episode of the simpsons where the firemen were about to amputate Homer's arm inside the coke machine?

    fireman : " wait a minute , are you just holding on to the can ?"

    Homer : "your point being ? "

    you ' re not trapped with the bass still on i hope :D
