The original LOXX straplock system was invented in 1924 by an english inventor Mr Thomas Morton, The mechanism was applied to the automotive industry to secure & lock cabriolets convertible soft tops.
Nowadays the LOXX guitar and bass strap lock system has found its way into the music industry purely by chance at a gig when the inventors son was playing. His sone dropped his bass mid song - he so happened to have the lock mechanism in his pocket - secured the strap back onto his sons bass and the LOXX was born!
They now come with a all purpose tool included, is available in a number of different colours and versions for electric,acoustic and bass guitars. And also has a 6 screw extender set in case the original strap hole is worn.
