#5 Guitar Pick Strap Lock

 

As straps get older, often time the ends become so pliable that they can easily slip off the endpin.  At this point, it is either time to get a new strap or buy some commercial strap locks.

 

Or, you can use this slick trick and turn a guitar pick into a strap lock.  A Nylon pick seems to be the material of choice for this project.

 

While I wouldn’t trust this for stage antics such as swinging the guitar around your shoulders (be sure to check out our bonus video)
