    In 2018 Schaller presents the new facelift of security locks:
    The S-Locks.
    S for save, S for silent and S for Schaller strap locks!

    What is new:

    The lock thread was extended for thick leather straps (a problem I have with a Richter strap, still the washer doesn't fit on it).
    The bolt was angled for an easier slideing and reconstructed, that it won't make noise anymore while using it.

    The washer and the nut were replaced by the lock wheel. The biggest change.
    Instead of using locktite for the nuts, this version should be 100% fixed.


    The strap button+screw is now solid and will be fixed with a metric hex.
    The thread should now fit also for gibson instruments ( but anyway they bust :p).
    The only point where i see problems, when you need a longer screw. E.g. the old Fortress basses which had Dunlop Flush Mounts and i used longer screws to use Schallers on them.

    But the locks will be 100% compatible with the old pins. So no problem in using older ones.

    I will get a S-Lock set for free from Schaller and will do a review comparing the old Schaller Security Locks, HB plagiats and the Dunlop system ;)

    Awesome. I thought a product named S-lock was already around. I believe Warwick manufactured Schaller style locks with that name.
