Strap Jack Unveils Endpin Locking System

A way to keep your acoustic-electric guitar securely strapped on when playing unplugged.

Los Angeles, CA (August 17, 2017) -- Strap Jack is the best way to keep your acoustic-electric guitar securely strapped on when playing unplugged—preventing your strap from slipping off and protecting your guitar from falling.

If you play an acoustic-electric guitar, you know that putting your strap on is difficult because the endpin jack is bigger than the strap hole. And since the strap fits poorly, it can slip off—dangerous when you’re playing unplugged and there’s no instrument cable to catch your guitar. Strap Jack solves this problem and protects your guitar by keeping your strap securely in place.

And unlike other strap locks out there, you don’t have to make any modifications to your guitar to use Strap Jack. It’s not permanently attached to either your guitar or your strap, and it’s easy to install and remove.

Simply attach your guitar strap to the endpin jack of your acoustic-electric guitar and plug Strap Jack in. Strap Jack is a system designed to keep your strap securely in place while you play your guitar unplugged. For guitars with a strap button on the neck heel area, we also include a specially made, durable rubber washer—sometimes called a "guitar saver" — to keep the other end of your strap secured.

Strap Jack is simple, inexpensive, works with all acoustic-electric guitars, requires no modification to your instrument and—best of all—it really works!

Purchase Strap Jack individually ($8.95), or save on a 2-pack ($12.95), or 3-pack ($16.95).

While Annie Clark was named the 26th greatest guitarist of all time by Rolling Stone in 2023, she couldn’t care less about impressing an athletic stamp on either her sound or her image.

On her eighth studio release, the electroacoustic art-rock guitarist and producer animates an extension of the strange and singular voice she’s been honing since her debut in 2007.

“Did you grow up Unitarian?” Annie Clark asks me. We’re sitting in a control room at Electric Lady Studios in New York’s West Village, and I’ve just explained my personal belief system to her, to see if Clark, aka St. Vincent, might relate and return the favor. After all, does she not possess a kind of sainthood worth inquiring about?

On the Tuareg band’s Funeral for Justice, they light a fiery, mournful pyre of razor-sharp desert-blues riffs and political calls to arms.

Mdou Moctar, the performing moniker of Tuareg guitar icon Mahamadou “Mdou” Souleymane, has played some pretty big gigs. Alongside guitarist Ahmoudou Madassane, drummer Souleymane Ibrahim, and bassist Mikey Coltun, Moctar has led his band’s kinetic blend of rock, psych, and Tuareg cultural traditions like assouf and takamba to Newport Folk Festival, Pitchfork Music Festival, and, just this past April, to the luxe fields of Indio, California, for Coachella. Off-kilter indie-rock darlings Parquet Courts brought them across the United States in 2022, after which they hit Europe for a run of headline dates.
