I use these locking steel studs for both wraparound bridges and for the stop bar on a traditional Tune-O-Matic. I first used them as replacements for the stock bridge posts on a Gibson Les Paul Jr. The immediate effect was an increase in clarity, punch and sustain. I was amazed that this simple parts swap would have sunch a noticeable effect on the guitar. I prefer the steel studs myself as they also add a bith of brightness to a dark sounding guitar. I like that first experience so much that these studs are standard issue on wraparound bridges and on TOM stop bars on every custom guitar I build!
