    Default EVH 5150 strap locks - rols?

    I remember reading a few years ago on these forums on the exact hardware needed to install the EVH style strap locks (the big eye bolts) and the clips you needed for your straps.

    Now that I have my own 5150 replica, I want to complete it with the same strap lock system, however after doing a few searches, I can't find the thread.

    I believe it was rols who had the information.

    Can anyone help me find the thread, or post the info again?

    Thanks!

    -Dan-

    I bought a luggage strap. Now be careful...the eye bolts will mean that, depending on your case, the guitar may not fit in the case properly. If you have a Gator case, this will be true...

    I believe it went something like this:

    goto www.musicyo.com order a leather strap ($10)
    and then use #6 eyescrews in your guitar, goto the hardware store get 1\8" quicklinks and swivel snap hooks for use with 3\8" straps , run the quicklinks thru the eyeholes in the strap then connect them to the swivel hooks, it literally takes 1 minute to do and costs $5 in hardware.
    As for still fitting in your case it depends what case\guitar you have I know the wolfgangs still fit just fine and the 1984's or 5150's work in the tkl cases just fine.
    Rol.

    I've got (2) Black Ernie Ball Leather straps like Ed used during the F.U.C.K tour. One is 2 1/2" wide, the other is 3" wide. If you're needing one/both let me know. Both are new.

    actually belive it or not I found you can just use banjo straps, they make them the same as guitars straps only they already have the snap hooks on the end of them
    they are all over ebay. I got a yellow and black "police line do not cross" for 15$
    a while ago, but they have black leather yadda yadda all the same as the guitar straps
    Rol.
