Strap Installation Intro

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.

Strap Installation 1

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