Product Review: LOXX

I just picked up strap locks from a lesser known company named Loxx. Made in Germany, Loxx straplocks are basic and to the point. With a claimed 220 lb. of pull out force, these German engineered strap locks took me about 2 minutes to install with a screw gun. As said in my previous post, I’ve been faithful to Dimarzio Clip Lock straps. When I got my Betty strap, I needed strap locks. Now, although the Loxx strap locks won’t quit fit on the Betty strap unless I ream or punch out the hole a bit on the strap, these locks are quite nice. I like that they are very low profile and that the flat bolt has teeth that mount on the strap from behind. Its funny because the only other strap locks I’ve ever used were Schallers and I quit using them because the nut came loose and so did my strap. So I never used strap locks again. Loxx happens to have a nice comparison on their website between their product and Schaller’s. I can’t speak for other companies. Since I’m not really wanting to make the strap hole bigger on my Betty strap, I may try Ernie Ball strap locks and see how they compare. For the price and the quality, I would recommend Loxx. By the way, check out the Loxx history of how they came to be. Its actually kinda cool.
