    Those strap buttons are so dang big. Do you unscrew them, attach your strap, put them back on, and leave the strap on full time?

    I just answered his question. He is certainly free to do whatever he wants to. I have no special powers to forbid anyone on this forum from doing anything.:rotflmao

    Strap locks are the first things that go on my new PRS's. Don't want any chance to ding her up!

    No. You pull, stretch, expand, yank, mistreat the holes in your straps till they beg for mercy, and work them on. Takes a while the first few times but eventually gets somewhat easier. Then of course you can only use the abused straps on your PRS, but they hold like crazy.

    That's pretty much what I do.:D

    I love the Prs strap buttons. I even bought more Bass string trees for my other guitars.:NUTS

    Put Dunlop Strap Locks on.....at least PRS doesnt put the smallest buttons on like Gibson. Never understood that?? Gibson buttons are ridiculously small...like they want you stap to come undone????

    I agree - only other option really is to leave the strap on in the case....

    actually, the PRS straplocks work great and are not hard difficult to use with a strap at all... IF... you do one simple thing...

    (carefully, of course) take a box cutter and lengthen the slit in the strap above the hole... just about 1/4" (do this on each end of the strap).

    after that, the strap goes on as easily on a PRS as it does any other guitar... and, most importantly, it stays on. >>> plus, the same strap will still work for all your other instruments.
