ストラップピンの高さ比較

Famous manufacturer's strap lock pin. They are also solidly built, Once you set it up and detach it is one touch. Although it is a convenient product, does not it think that it is too heavy. Above all, I'm also worried that the position where the strap takes is away from the body of the guitar. The stress that the body receives from the strap pin increases as the position at which the strap is applied is away from the body.
Since "Flap Latch" can use the standard strap pin as it is, it hangs the weight of the guitar in the position of about 3 mm from the body surface.

This product is currently sold only in Japan.
