quick fix


Quick fix for guitar strap



Would buy again


I needed a way to get a strap on my brand new F335 and thus worked out great!



I would buy this again


Used it on my acoustic guitar, absolutely fantastic. Easy to put on and works great





Reliable and tight 👌



Simple, Effective AND SAFE!!!!


Gets the job done! I've used these on many of my instruments for years. They may take a slight loosening of the strings to install, but from then on you're good to go.... never, ever have harmed the finish on any of my instruments, keeps the strap well away from my fretting hand, and no strap button to bump into on the higher register!!!!! New straps might take some wrangling to get on and off for a while until the strap leather softens, but at least you can rest assured that strap is staying on until you tell it otherwise!!!!! Never in 30 years have I had a strap come undone from mine. No clips to fail here!



Martin headstock strap ties


Excellent quality! But needs a better button fastener for their own Martin straps



Great product!


I was looking for something exactly like this and easily found it at Sam Ash. Thanks.



Good Headstock Strap Tie


This is a very basic piece of gear. It works for its designed purpose. Typically, guitar straps attach to flanged metal buttons on the instrument. For guitars having only one strap button, this item permits attaching one strap end to the headstock area without modifying the guitar in a possibly detrimental way. I would have rated this product five stars if the strap button hardware had been made of metal. Relying on a cheap plastic button to secure a valuable guitar is a bit unsettling. Martin should reconsider their decision to cut costs in this area. Plastic, while not a deal breaker for me, was disappointing. I expected better from Martin.

Very cool product for those without a strap button.


I bought the Martin headstock tie for my 1965 Martin 000-18 as I didn't want to alter it in any permanent way. It worked perfectly and allowed me to use a guitar strap with my cool vintage Martin. I recommend this product to anyone who wishes to use a strap with your vintage acoustic or any instrument you don't wish to alter. Thanks, Sam!
