: It keeps falling off!I have a Hamer Slammer Blitz,I just got this bass last December.It's my first.I don't think it's a particularlly good bass either(read:it kinda sucks),because my mother bought it for me for Christmas as a surprise and she has no knowledge of bass guitars at all.She says she got it for like $500 or something and it's new.So,anyways,someone help me on how to fix this strap knob because it's annoying to be into some song then all of a sudden have the thing fall!Thanks alot.

Hey Stephanie,
Changing to straplocks by Jim Dunlop or similar is a really good idea, but you can still fix the problem and keep the strap holders on your bass by just replacing the screws that hold them. I would try bigger, longer screws and see what happens.
Buena suerte and keep your bass up front in the mix,
