How To Put A Strap On A Ukulele

It is not always easy to hold your ukulele in your hand. Whichever way you hold the instrument, there will come a time when your arms or leg start to protest. In these cases, you have only one solution: equip your ukulele with a strap. This article will show you how to put a strap on a ukulele (applicable to both electric and acoustic models).

Choose The Right Strap

Choose The Right Strap

There are dozens of different designs for a strap. You will find straps in a sober and classic design, straps in bright colors, straps with a crazy style, etc. It all comes down to the question of taste and you will be spoiled for choice.

There are also thin, thick or padded straps. We advise you to choose the padded models because they will hurt your shoulder the least. You can also opt for the thin straps if you do not plan to play for a long time.

Material is also very important. Indeed, while most of the straps are designed in synthetic, there are high-end models designed in leather.

However, beyond the stylistic aspect, the practical side of the strap must take precedence over everything else. Don't be blinded by the aesthetics of a strap to buy a poor quality model. The important thing is to be able to take better control of your ukulele.

Choose The Bindings For Your Ukulele

When you want to attach a strap to your ukulele, the first thing to do is to choose your bindings. They are available online and in all stores specializing in musical instruments. The strap attachment is actually a small piece of plastic or metal that is fixed on the button of the ukulele straps after having passed the latter through the holes provided for this purpose.

Choose The Bindings For Your Ukulele

It is a very practical device to solidify the strap and thus prevent your ukulele from falling. This also minimizes the damages to your ukulele and saves you the cost of repairing or replacing the instrument. In addition, fixings are available at very affordable costs.

How To Install A Strap With Plastic Fasteners?

A plastic fastener is a kind of small plastic circle with a turning top. It’s also the cheapest binding in the market. So, how to put a strap on a ukulele using these fasteners? It's pretty simple for installation. Pass a button of the belts via the circle of the fastener. Then, you block it by tightening it with a small device located at the top of the binding. Then move on to the second edge and repeat the same process.

Now your ukulele is ready to use with a strap, and say goodbye to the risk of falling. However, once the strap is installed, you should know that you need to adjust its length in order to secure your ukulele at the right height. Your musical instrument that is now hanging from your shoulders doesn't mean it never hangs down to your knees.

Final Thoughts

You can't enjoy playing for hours with a ukulele without a strap because it will make you tired of having to hold it constantly. Putting the strap on it can make the instrument easier to control.
