Put the Strap on Your Ukulele Without Drilling

- Mar 01, 2017 -

Many ukulele athletes like to play ukulele while standing. There are also many players who will perform on the stage of their Ukulele. Although you can play a ukulele while standing (hold your body with your elbows), it is much easier to install the harness.


You can drill a whole in your ukulele and install a belt button that allows the use of guitar straps, but creating a permanent hole in your precious ukulele is not something everyone wants to do eagerly Things. Fortunately, there are enough no drill options.

Hanging on the sound hole

These are the most popular pitfalls and are very easy to install (because they are not installed at all). These straps hang from the bottom of the sound hole, then down to the bottom of the body, and finally around the neck or chest. You still need to hold the ukulele, otherwise it will flip. Therefore it only provides support. However it is very useful, there are many (many) different models, from very basic black nylon straps to some more beautiful necklace straps.


Ukulele Loop Ukulele strap system

This is a strap system that fully supports your ukulele. It can be used with all types of ukulele because it comes with two metal brackets that need to be attached to the instrument via an adhesive pad. However, it is possible to use only one bracket. Although the metal pieces are semi-permanently connected to your ukulele, they can be removed if needed. Do not use on high-end ukuleles on expensive shiny surfaces.

Uke Leash is a relatively new (2010) ukulele strap support system developed by Lori Apthorp for ukulele. No drilling, adhesive or hooks are required. You still need to hold it tightly between your body and your arms because it only keeps the ukulele on the headgear. This can be very difficult, but according to the creator, it can even enhance the ukulele sound compared to other belts
