    Lightbulb How about a UU uke strap?

    I'm lazy and tend to play sitting in a comfy chair or swinging in a hammock but I've seen a lot of questions about uke straps for those who stand up. There are quite a few nice lanyard type straps now that go into the sound hole and if there was one with Ukulele Underground written on it it might be cool enough for me to get one and get up off my simian behind.

    Nice idea, I might actually buy one! I would have to see what they look like first...

    You don't actually need a strap if you stand up.

    Just pointing that little tidbit out. Carry on...

    Depends on how you play. If you are a classical guitarist type, and like to play melodic, you really need a strap.

    I don't like the sound hole hooks though. I would rather have a button/ tie strap system.

    Oh man I would so buy one right now for my Tenor, but not one of those cheap ones that connects to the inside of the sound hole, the ones that connect to a strap button at the bottom of the body and have a sliding "lasso" string that goes on the top of the neck. Ukulele Underground all over the strap ::drools::

    pics?

    Do uke's even have a button on the bottom for a strap? I know mine doesn't.

    I would go with a shower type suction cup. Those hold pretty well and wouldn't require any damage to the uke body. I'm sure this has been thought of before though.

    i think even lanyards themselves would be a great idea too.

    i would even want one to have my car keys attached to. of course i would rep it everywhere because i bring my keys with me.

    i vote yes on this one too.
