    Put a D'Addario CinchFit Acoustic Jack Lock on my Oscar Schmidt late last evening, gave it a tune and practiced some chords.
    Must say I am quite happy with the CinchFit.

    Got a new concert Flea on Wednesday, today I put a low g Aguila string on it. I was worried about how it would fit, but no problem at all. I've downloaded several tab pieces for low g from several sites. The low g sounds really nice. (not that I'd ever want to give up my high g)

    I know, it works on some songs, but I guess I prefer to play songs that sound good in high G, like islandy songs and old time tin pan alley type stuff.

    It is a device to enable strap fitment on an acoustic endpin jack such as a MISI, LR Baggs or K&K pickup.
    Has small pads on it that let it swivel quite easily on the endpin jack without marring the finish on your uke.
    Attached to your strap in a similar fashion as a cord that attaches a strap on the headstock.

    But, I just cut the hole in the end of the strap a little bigger...

    I bought a Sarah Maisel strap which I'm breaking in, it's a cool strap and adds a little pizazz to my setup.
