Post Re: New (to me) NS/Stick and Straplok Solution
Here it is folks!

And here's the close up off the straplok solution that my friend and previous owner Gary Tompkins came up with.

Image

The Nylock nut

Image

The Dunlop Straplok is through bolted and sandwiches the extension bar between the Nylock and strap pin.Make sure you get a bolt with a small enough head to fit into the pin and that it is a Phillips type (or Allen,security,etc) as a hex socket type would be impossible to tighten down since you would have to use a socket wrench. I suppose this will work on Schaller and other strap security systems as long as the bolt head sits firmly inside the strap pin so as not the interfere with the locking mechanism.

Notice that the strap pin is oriented so that it faces the player instead of away. So,when you affix the locking mechanism to the strap make sure that it is reversed (on the back side) so that the strap lays correctly against your shoulder. I suppose you can affix the Straplok onto the bar facing away from you as well, in which case the locking mechanism can be attached to the strap's top side.

Any of the above type of bolts will work..even a slotted type. Just size it right with regards to how much will stick out beyond the Nylock once it wrenched down. Keep in mind also that there is a thread count variance in the bolts and also fine vs coarse (your local hardware store staff should know the difference). This will insure a proper and working fit. Bring the strap pin with you to the hardware store just to make sure the bolt head fits down into the strap pin opening.

Don't use this type..a hex socket head, as you will not be able to get a socket into the strap pin to tighten it down.

Well there ya have it. I hope this helps. Let me know if ya use this strap pin method on your NS/Stick and how it works out.
Maybe I should move this part of the thread over to a NS/Stick Tech thread....

ADDENDUM: Further observation on strap pin placement.

Having thought about why my friend had placed the strap pin facing the player, I realized that affixing it on the opposite side of the extension bar would place the strap pin and strap too close to the neck at about the 9th position,which would get in the way of the player's hands.
