Gripper Truss Rod Wrenches

About This Item

Dang! Somebody used the wrong size wrench, and now you can't adjust that worn Allen truss rod nut. Fear not, our Gripper wrenches can save the day!

Each wrench has a 3/8"-long end that tapers from slightly undersize to slightly oversize, giving you a snug fit to turn the nut and avoid a costly replacement job.

Our veteran guitar technicians developed these high quality steel truss rod wrenches. The length, comfortable rubberized handles, durability and variety of sizes let you perform formerly difficult truss rod adjustments with ease. The straight wrenches are 12-1/2" long, keeping your knuckles safely away from the peghead.

#6210-G Gripper wrench has a special angled handle for tuner clearance on 6-in-line pegheads. For 1/8" Allen nut; 2" reach.

Special notes for the soundhole wrenches
4mm is for Hot Rod truss rods. #6110-G is for pre-August 2007 Martins; #6114-G and #6212-G are for later Martins. Triple-bend wrenches provide clearance under the guitar's braces.

Didn't work for me.

I'm sure for some, it's a quick fix. For me however, it did nothing but make the situation worse.

Review of the Gripper Truss Rod Wrenches

By

Verified Buyer


The gripper did not work it all on my Warwick Bass with a stripped nut. No grip at all, completely useless. It just spins without turning the nut.

Good tool.

By

Verified Buyer


This tool worked, the truss rod turned and all was well. For the price, even if it didn't work, it wasn't a huge investment, and it would have been worth the try.

Great tool!

The tool did exactly as advertised ! Wonderful idea, and will not damage my stripped nut on my very expensive 5 string Ken Smith bass any further! Overjoyed !

Yep - just BUY IT!

Works great and beats the heck out of those little allan wrenches that sometimes don't quite work. And it's affordable too!

5.0

Yay, it works!!! 

By

My other Allen wrenches were worn and slipping which, I thought, was going to lead to an expensive job to replace the truss-rod nut on my Strat - but this tool really does the job.

Here's one for the Gripper!

By

Verified Buyer


Like most guitar repair guys, I see the results of amateur guitar repair all the time. I find sloppy soldering jobs, ugly headstock repairs and a TON of stripped out truss rod nuts. A Fender Tele Deluxe came in for a refret and the inside of the truss rod nut had been wallowed out by something other than an 1/8" allen wrench. I grabbed my trusty Gripper and it gripped what was left of the nut and allowed me to adjust the neck. I think I'll buy all of them!
