    I have a set on a guitar. It's made by Schaller w/ Fender stamped on them. Schaller also makes tuners w/ Fender logos. No issues, quality is exactly the same. I have both Schaller and Fender stamped straplocks.

    Exactly the same as Schaller's as far as I can tell, mine came from MF...

    I got a bunch of those Shallers but I am converting back to the Dunlop Straplocks. Shaller screws come loose, fall off and can't easily be found. That happens in real life action. Dunlops do not do that. Dunlops require drilling though which might require removal of a neck of the guitar or bass, depending on the drill tool.

    I just ordered a set, I'm just hoping these fender ones and my schallers are compatible with each other

    They are...my strap is loaded with schallers and I put the Fender's on my new tele - perfect fit.

    As far as the nut coming off the schaller, use a dab of non-permanent loctite...they won't budge until you need them to.

    Mine doesn't have any Fender stamp on them except the packaging. Just like any other Schaller. But mine says "Made in W.Germany", not sure if that's common but my friend's set plainly says "Made in Germany" instead. Anyway it fits on any Schaller buttons.

    Sounds like yours were made before German reunification in the early 90's. Before that there was East Germany and West Germany.

    Just a heads up to anyone looking at these, they are identical to Schafer strap locks, but don't include the extra long screws, but you can always just use the screws already on your guitar
