Instructions


Headstock Strap:
1.Undo the loop and lay the strap flat under the headstock between the two rows of tuners. 
2. Bring the strap around the headstock, under the strings and back toward the plastic slide. 
3. Thread the strap back through the plastic slide: up, over and down.
4. Tighten strap around headstock.
5. For geared tuners, rotate the buckle to the back of the headstock.
For friction tuners, position the buckle on the near side of the headstock.



Position #1 - Arm Loop : A natural first choice for many, this position is quick to go on and come off. 
1. Adjust the loop on the main strap to be approximately a 9-11” long closed loop.
2. With the loop buckled, put your strumming arm through the loop with the buckle going on your back, toward the neck.
3. Check the position of the buckle verses your neck. Adjust strap if necessary to keep buckle away from the neck.
4. Take the free end of strap, and put it behind your neck and over to your opposite shoulder.
5. Buckle ukulele onto the end of the strap.
6. Adjust length as necessary.
7. For easy removal, use quick release buckles.



Postition #2 - Arm Band: Good for sitting or standing, this position brings strap lower on the back, reducing stress on the neck. Slightly restrictive on strumming arm movement but many people have chosen this position as their favorite.
1. Adjust the loop on the main strap to be approximately a 6-8” long closed loop. 
2. With the loop buckled, put your strumming arm through the loop and position around the mid point of your upper arm. Don’t make the loop too tight.
3. Rotate the buckle to the back of your arm.
4. Take the free end of the strap, and put it over your head, across your back and over your opposite shoulder.
5. Buckle ukulele onto the end of the strap.
6. Adjust length as necessary.
7. For easy removal, use quick release buckles.

Postition #3 -Belt/ Belt Loop position: Transfers most of the weight to the waistband and avoids involving the neck. Good for standing or sitting.
1. Adjust the loop on the main strap to be a 2-3” long closed loop. 
2. Buckle loop around a belt or belt loop. Best results are from rear (strumming) side of body.
3. Take the free end of the strap, pass it diagonally across your back and up and over your opposite shoulder.
4. Buckle ukulele onto the end of the strap.
5. Adjust length as necessary.
6. For easy removal, use quick release buckles.

Postition #4 -Leg Strap position: Similar to Belt/ Belt Loop position. Good for using with pants without belt loops, or if you want to avoid bunching your untucked shirt. Works best for sitting and playing. OK for standing if you don’t move around too much.
1. Adjust the loop on the main strap to be a 2-3” long closed loop.
2. Buckle leg strap onto your thigh (strumming side).  
3. Buckle main strap loop around leg strap. Position strap toward the outside rear.
4. Take the free end of the strap, pass it diagonally across your back and up and over your opposite shoulder.
5. Buckle ukulele onto the end of the strap.
6. Adjust length as necessary.
7. For easy removal, use quick release buckles.
