    And you can market it as an advertisement space to companies. "I'm playing this uke with this strap all over town, want your name here?"

    Daddario makes something similar to Jake's, with a small rubber 'hook' at half the the price, or the Fremont at half that...or there are really cheap ones off Ali or ebay

    Installing strap buttons does not break the ukulele or ruin the sound. Just about every steel-string acoustic guitar has strap buttons installed at the factory and no one complains about them.

    I will recommend buying a strap pin and installing it. It is not that difficult, I have done it on a couple of my ukes. It should be an very high end uke before I would worry about the button would damage the value. I am hesitant about my vintage kamaka, but on low and mid range ukes I believe it will only add value.

    Find an online toturial. You should check first that the ukes has a small wood block on the inside that the screw can connect to when going through the outer wood.
    Pre drill with a small size drill. Place a piece of making tape at the base before drilling to protect the finish around the actual hole. Then screw in the strap button. It is recommended to use a small felt washer between the button and the uke to protect tee finish. I dont know where to get those, I cut one from some material I had lying around.
