This tool is just for pulling, not cutting, frets. Its spring-loaded flush-ground 1/2" jaws are small enough for a better bite.

It helps reduce wood chip-out, and does a better job of getting under frets and lifting them than wider cutters. Comfortable rubber-coated handles.

Chip-free fret jobs: try the Fret Puller with our Chip Stoppers, and forever change the way you remove frets.

Works on stainless frets, too!
All of our tools are suitable for use on stainless-steel fretwire, with the exception of our Fret Tang Nippers and Fret Cutters. Modern stainless-steel fretwire is known to be harder than the traditional nickel-silver blends, but our own shop experience indicates the wire does not cause premature wear of files or sandpapers.

The right tool for the job

By James Murphy from Plymouth England

Hardware store snips are not ground to the right shape to get under a fret. This tool is right for the job. It has been effective for me.

I graduated from a Luthier school and they provided a fret puller that was big and bulky. I was very frustrated using them in school. Then I bought this pair of Fret pullers and they are worth their weight in gold. Don't rush it and you can pull frets without denting the FB with minimal tear out. Dont waste your time trying to grind your own pair. These work flawlessly. Small and also they spring back open.

I have just received and used the Fret Puller. It is the easiest tool I have used for this job and I would highly recommend it to anyone.

Far better than the bigger one for removing the frets. It is true that minimizes the wood chipping.

Excellent tool!

This is an excellent tool for pulling frets that have been worn down to the fretboard. Great grip; works great for me. Aloha!

I can't imagine removing frets using any other tool or method. Made short work of fret removal and pulled the frets out as clean as could be expected.

works great

2nd time's a charm

The first set I received had slightly mis-ground jaws, which is why I couldn't give them a 5-star rating. But the replacement set was sent out to me as soon as I mentioned the problem to customer service, and those were flawless. Great tool. Not cheap, but I don't need to spend my time hunting down the right pair of cutters to modify. To me, they're worth the money.

Great Fret Puller!

Just purchased the Fret Puller. It works. Took the first few frets to really get the hang of it, learning the whole "walking the fret out" thing. After those first few, I blew past the others. Seemed very well built, nothing flimsy or weak about it. It's pricey, and shipping aint cheap either, but I figure I'll use this constantly when I have my own repair/custom shop so it's a worthwhile investment!
