Putting a strap over the endpin jack can be a little tricky. Here are some tips to make sure it goes on securely.

Many Taylor guitars with onboard electronics use a specially designed endpin jack that also serves as the strap holder. Since we need enough room for a 1/4" cable to plug in through the hole at the end of your leather strap, it may need to be slightly enlarged. Taylor branded straps are designed with these holes enlarged to 3/8" (9.5mm) so no modification is necessary.

1. Line the strap end up with the jack. Note there is a slit going up from the strap pin hole opening.

2. Starting at the slit, push the corner of the strap under the flanged strap holder.

3. Using your thumb nail, follow the circle tucking the edge of the strap opening under the flanged strap holder along the way.

4. Half way there!

5. Follow through to the end, tucking the last corner by the slit under the flanged strap holder.

6. Give the strap a little tug to make sure it's properly seated, and you're all done!

Note:Taylor branded straps are available through authorized Taylor dealers, and on our website
