D’Addario Launches Pad Lock Guitar Straps

D’Addario Launches Pad Lock Guitar Straps

D’Addario introduces a line of straps designed to offer hassle-free security.


Inserting a rubber washer over a guitar strap and onto the end pin of a guitar is an old trick to getting some extra strap security. The Pad Lock Strap is designed to improve this technique by making the rubber washer part of the strap end itself. No need to find rubber washers, replace end pins, or add any extra parts. It’s as easy as putting on the strap and pulling the rubber tab over the endpin.

Woven Pad Lock Straps offer designs for players of all styles. Available beginning in April, D’Addario has four new Pad Lock prints to choose from, including Phoenix Dream, ParallelFlowers, Monterey Black, and Lightning Black. From iconic themes to unique patterns and artwork, these durable straps provide distinct style along with hassle-free security.

MSRP $24.99
