The Knob Puller is a simple solution for stubborn knobs. Just slide it under the knob, push the tension ring down for a firm grip, and carefully pull the knob off. It works with standard speed knobs, bell knobs, and Strat® knobs. The smooth durable plastic helps protect pickguards and guitar finishes.

Guitar repair shops will use this everyday, but if you're pulling bushings too, consider the Knob and Bushing Puller.

Does the job

This puller works very well, even on crusty old pedal knobs. However, the way it flexes I'm always worried it will break - hasn't yet, though.

Bought it specifically for my American made Strat

Terrible on my Strat, will not fit under the knob of my start, seems like it will get under Gibson knobs no problem.

Very good value.

I chose this over the more fancy/expensive model. It is a very good value. It worked great for my difficult job. Buy one for your tool kit.

Broke on first try

To be fair, I bought this to pull a very stubborn knob off of a Hofner. The tool managed to separate the knob from the brass insert but snapped in two at the top of the horseshoe once the knob parted with the insert. I tried to glue it with CA but had more distortion of material than adherence. The clamping horseshoe should be made out of more ductile plastic or a stop molded at the top of the horseshoe to prevent exceeding the travel limits.

Works very well

This worked so well that I actually pulled the shafts out of their pots when I had an issue with much too tight bell knobs on a Gibson Les Paul. And yes, I ordered the correct sized spline - knobs need correcting. But you'll notice that no marks were left on finish due to this awesome knob puller and it's lifting strength!

Works great with ALL knobs.

The day I received it I didn't have a guitar handy to try it out on. Instead I decided to test the knob puller on the "manual" button on my MXR EVH117 flanger pedal. It did take a tug but the knob popped off with no damage. It will work on anything you can fit in its "jaws." Comes in a box with no instructions so you have to be smarter than the tool. :)

Looks like a flimsy toy, works like a pro tool!

There's not much to say about this product other than it works great. I had stubborn bell knobs on my Epiphone Les Paul and were almost impossible to remove without scratching the finish. It worked perfectly. It also looks sturdy enough to last even though it is just plastic. All in all, if you are worried it's a flimsy tool and won't work, it does =)

Safe & Easy

Works safer and easier than all other crude methods I've tried. Spend the few bucks and get yourself a nice little tool.

Another Must Have

I truly hate trying to pull a stubborn knob off. And nothing is worse than having a knob crack or break then having to replace it. Money and time down the drain. Save yourself a lot of potential hassle and buy this. It's quick, safe, cheap and easy to use.
