Schaller has expanded their strap lock options with the S-Locks Strap Lock system. The new design is comprised of three components: the strap button, a lock, and a lock-wheel.
While there are several updates to the set, the lock-wheel is the most obvious. It screws down onto your strap to ensure a secure hold without the need for tools. However, if you want a tighter fit, a hole for a 2mm Allen wrench or screwdriver can give you more torque. Finally, a threaded pin with a cone point keeps the lock wheel in place. Other upgrades include a new ball design, a new bolt design, a larger lock thread to hold up to 6mm straps, and silent use.

The new Schaller S-Lock system is expected to ship in May with a starting price of $24.30.
