These are much easier to install on your strap compared to the Dunlop system. Where these are annoying is when removing the strap from your guitar. On the dunlops you push a button to release the strap, on these you pull the pin and slide the strap off. It catches several times and it can be annoying to remove. The good news is that means your strap isn't going anywhere unless you want it to. The overall hardware is robust and doesn't come loose. The buttons/pins are large enough to use a normal strap and don't protrude very far from the guitar the way the dunlops do. If you have a guitar with the button location on the back of the neck or back of the horn, then I recommend these for sure.
