    Thanks for the pointer, I haven't seen the S-Locks to this, but I've only put them on two guitars so far.

    My 594 DC had the problem you describe, though I think on that guitar I used Dunlops with the stock screw.

    My first PRS I installed the Schallers on. Used the original PRS screws, but had to trim the heads down to fit into them.

    The new S locks are all one piece. Screw and button are one.

    Oh, interesting. Not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing.

    The first strap locks I used, back in the late 70s or early 80s, was a lot like that. It was a leather piece that screwed to the guitar, and had a screw that went through the strap on the other end. You needed a screwdriver if you wanted to take the strap off.

    I much prefer being able to easily remove or add the strap when needed. Seems the strap always ends up in my way when sitting.
