Trem-Arm Tension Spring

About This Item

Your tremolo arm stays put—no more flopping around. A quick, simple solution to a problem that can drive you crazy!

Screw the tremolo arm out of your bridge and drop the ball bearing in the hole. Drop the spring in next, and screw the arm back in place. That's all there is to it.

Turning against the ball bearing keeps the spring from binding as it compresses under the tremolo arm. With the added spring tension, the trem-arm stays wherever you leave it.

Works for traditional Strat tremolos, like our #1264 Gotoh Tremolo. Doesn’t work for our other models.

Dimensions
Spring: 0.5" long x 0.150" diameter (12.7mm x 3.81mm)
Ball Bearing: 0.158" diameter (4mm)

Great service from Stewmac too.

Hated the way my vibrato arm would just flop around. This fixed the problem, works great, keeps the arm where you leave it. Very satisfied.

I bought this for a squier and had to shorten the spring. Works great though.

The little ball and spring work exactly as advertised. I put them in the bar hole of the plain 6 bolt vintage style MIM Fender Blacktop and I can now dial in arm position and tension to just about anything I like. I wonder if it would also work as well on my CP 60's Strat.

I installed the Trem-Arm Tension Spring on my Mexican Stratocaster 4 days ago and it does exactly what the description says it will do. It holds my tremolo arm in any position I place it. This is a great solution to a problem that was always occurring. I never could count on the trem-arm being where I wanted to reach for it and use, then put it out of the way in the location I needed it to stay. A tip for others using this device: I like to remove the tremolo arm before putting it in my hard-shell case to prevent it from being activated and making an indent in the case padding. After removing the tremolo while in a horizontal position, place a small piece of gaffers tape over the hole to keep the spring and bearing from being dislodged in transit. Then remove the tape and reinsert to trem-arm when ready to play again.

Trem-Arm Tension Spring works good on my stratocaster. The ball is a new device that was not available when I bought my last spring. I'm wondering if it works ok with a Fender Squire?
