Tremolo Spring Installer

About This Item

Makes tricky tremolo spring installation easy. A word of advice: pliers are NOT the right tool for installing tremolo springs!

Pliers slip and the spring goes flying off to ding the guitar's finish or scrape your knuckles. Here's a better way: a simple, inexpensive 6" steel hook that's the right length to make stubborn spring installation remarkably easy. It gives you a straight non-slip pull—you'll wonder how you got along without it! It helps protect your fingers as well as your guitar.

Great and useful tool. I had broken one, left a mediocre review, and realized that it was due to pilot error!! So, I have come to update my review. This is great and works well...when used correctly! Sometimes I amaze myself ...haha

Works well.

It works well. Wasn't able to use it as directed but it still works. It didn't work to insert th right angle of the spring to the block but works fine using it on the loop end of the spring to the claw.

Makes installing springs child's play.

I don't know how I got along without this tool. It makes changing and adding springs to a floating trem. bridge a snap. No more flying springs when your hand slips.......

In-expensive addition that will more then pay for itself.

The right tool for the job

By

There is no substitute for a sub par tool, much less a tool not made to do a delicate job.

The risk of the springs slipping out of, say, a pliers are high. (Don't ask how I "came to believe" this fact. Ouch.)

It works but it isn't the best way to install the springs.

I have mixed feelings about this tool. On the one hand, it does what it is supposed to do. On the other hand, it isn't the best tool for the job.

A better approach is to use a simple philips head screwdriver to loosen the screws that hold the tremolo claw in place. Once the screws are loosened, the springs can be easily and safely installed by hand. The same philips head screwdriver should then be used to tighten the screws. These screws generally need to be adjusted to make certain that the tremolo bridge is properly installed so there isn't any extra work involved.

In my experience, this is the safer way to install the springs. No sharp, hooked tool is needed which means there is no chance that the tool will come loose and damage the finish on the guitar or injure the skin on my hands. The springs aren't installed under a great deal of tension which makes them far less likely to become rogue projectiles flying around the room.

Tool is easy to use. The little finger is a lot stronger than it looks.

No sweating installing additional springs!

I bought the tremolo spring installer just for the sake of trying something that would avoid my sweating when trying to put an additional spring in the tremolo... I was not very convinced it would work... I just tried it in a FR tremolo installation and went like a breeze! Love it!
