    I've had many conversations about this subject here. Do a search on Dunlop Straplocks in all open forums and put my name (cb56) in the user name and you'll get plenty of info:

    Bottom line, After replacing the Dunlops 3 times, I yanked my Dunlops out, filled the holes with toothpicks and installed Schallers.

    so...what's wrong with them? mine stick open sometimes, but i just tap it and it locks. i just figured that it was because they were almost 4 years old and get used all the time.


    so...if i complain they'll send me new ones? considering how no one in madison sells dunlop straplocks maybe i should ;)

    Was it the strap portion of the straplock that you had problems with or the portion inside the body of the bass?

    Don't really know for sure. At first someone told me to lubricate the little ball bearings. I did that and it seemed to help but only temporarily. I replaced the entire unit 3 times, each times I would see improvement but eventually would have the same problem. Keep in mind that these are the flush mount (recessed) straplocks that fit down inside the bass. They were on my warwick thumb bass and I think the strap pulled at the straplocks at a wierd angle causing this problem (just guessing) I have the regular ones that look just like any strap button on my Ibanez and never have had a problem with them, but I want all of my basses to use the same straplocks.
