The DiMarzio Clip Lock Strap is one of the straps that you see often on both Ibanez and Musicman guitars. It’s a unique take on straps and locking systems in that it uses a quick release buckle that stays attached to the guitar. This guarantees that the strap will stay on your guitar, and you can always guarantee you have a secure connection, unlike certain other guitar straps.

This strap fixes a few things about strap locks currently on the market. Schaller strap locks have an issue with both squeaking during heavy usage and the nut coming loose. The nut issue can be fixed with loctite, but you need to buy the strap lock system again to fix the squeaking. The biggest issue with Dunlop strap locks is that the ball bearings might not fully engage inside the lip. This can cause the guitar to come apart from the strap.

The DiMarzio strap system prevents this, for the most part. There are a few issues with this system, however. The biggest is that the piece that stays attached to the guitar tends to scratch it up. Despite the ends always staying very secure, you should always make sure the screws are tight, and this goes for all strap systems out there. The other issue I personally had was that this strap moved around a lot for me. It’s because of the “seat belt” material they use. I just couldn’t deal with it moving around all the time. The part that says “DiMarzio” would also kinda dig into my shoulder.

Overall, this is a really good strap locking system. In fact, I think this is the most secure strap locking system on the market. However, I just couldn’t make it work for me. I’d like to try the Cordura system they offer, but I just haven’t gotten around to doing it.
