    I had the same vibrations complaint with Dunlops, which would rattle above the strap button all the time. I find the EB locks don't rattle when the guitar's weight is on the strap.

    The rattling is from the fact that the Dunlop system is held together by a spring clip, so if the strap is thin, the washers can have room to rattle around.

    No mystery what it was from, but I still found it bothersome.

    Any chance of buying the buttons themselves? I have 4 other basses I want to put these on,but dont need the strap protion.

    I've got this horrible problem...

    they are becoming more difficult to find in my area and I have to order online. Soo I try to pick up a few sets when i can find them.

    Every guitar I own gets the following post purchase treatment.
    1) It's own Jacquard Strap (EBMM only)
    2) it's own set of SuperLocks

    I was a Schaller user for years swore by them uand then i tried a set of the superlocks. I traded them all out almost immediately.
    The design is perfect and the security is perfect. I wish i could buy just the strap button side so i can hang my straps up next to my guitars
    Enjoy the Journey - Enjoy the Process

    Iíve got them on all of my basses and guitars. 5 in total. Only have two straps thought (my wireless is permanently attached to one and the second is spair) great for easy changing of basses mid set. Also means I have three sets of the locks still new.
    For future reference are there any plans on selling the parts separately (preferably just the buttons to attach to instrument) ?
