What buyers say about DAddario Elliptical End Pins, Black
The uke has a piece of wood that meets at the bottom, which is an added benefit to the safety factor.
I believe they will be good for securing the strap to the guitar, as long as they hold. they are smaller than I thought they would be, but would have been harder to get on if much bigger.
I am trying this for the first time, and I thought I would use it with the Lokk-it straps for an ultra secure strap locking system.
These elliptical end pins are a happy medium between old school end pins and modern strap locks, and they will secure your guitars strap very well if you get them at the right angle.
The quality of these things is great and they hold terrific, so they're better than having a bulky strap lock set on your guitars.
The video under the product pics seems to show a different design than the pics.
The product you're asking about is fixed in place and does not change. You mount them to the instrument the same way, then just attach the strap and assure that the long part of the ellipse is across.
Is the black buttons powder coated, or a flat black finish?
I took them off after almost dropping my axe, it rotates and good luck getting it tight enough to trust.
I bought a set of planet waves end pins, but there were no plastic or felt washers in the pack. Can someone tell?
It's easy to make from a neoprene washer, and if you slit the hole in your strap it's a little easier to get on and off.
Is it possible to install these on a ukulele or are the screws too long?
I know that uke straps are done differently than guitar straps, but I don't know the answer to that.
I had an endpin hole drilled into my acoustic dreadnought, do I need any other hardware to attach a guitar strap to it?
It's enough. Some people attach one to the back of the neck, but that's not necessary.
