Bullet Guitar Jack Tightener

About This Item

Tighten jacks on guitars or amps without taking anything apart!

The Bullet™ Jack Tightener works from the outside to prevent twisting and shorting the wires on the inside. Simple and inexpensive, it's a pocket-size fix for loose jacks in guitars and amps.

    Tighten (or loosen) your guitar's jack in three easy steps:
  • Put the socket head over the 1/2" nut.
  • Press the rubbery Grip-Tip™ into the jack to hold it.
  • Turn the tightening handle. Easy!

Fits US-sized 1/2" inch nuts for 1/4" inch jacks.

The Bullet is smooth molded plastic, so it won't scratch your guitar or amp hardware.

Patent pending.

Ineffective for LP copy

By

Verified Buyer


The tip is impossible to insert into the jack on my Tokai Love Rock Les Paul. I haven't yet tried it in any other guitars, but since I bought it specifically to help repair my LP jack, it is basically useless to me.

Great concept but measure your gear first!!!

The product description is very correct--this tool fits 1/2" nuts. As others have said, not all jacks use 1/2" nuts! Of my 5 guitars and 1 amp, only ONE guitar uses a 1/2" nut. The other guitars (a Cort, Squire, Korean knock-off, and Ibanez) use 7/16" nuts or a specialty nut (on the Ibanez, which doesn't have any problems anyways). My Fender amp seems to use 9/16" nuts... I'm also not sure how well the plug part of the tool actually holds onto the jack. If this tool had changable sockets, it would be worth 5 times as much!

How did I get by without this tool?

One of my students mentioned this device to me - she knew her guitar tech used one to snug the jack on her electric guitar. I'd been using a dowel or hook tool to hold the jack while I got a wrench on the nut. This tool does the job simply and quickly.

Keep in your case

I have a 339 and the jack wants to loosen up. This tool works great to keep it tight without having to over tighten and accidentally twist wires.

I bought this to tighten input jacks and it works well, worth the money!

Bullet guitar Jack Tightener

This is a great little inexpensive tool that saves a lot of time in my repair shop and with my own personal guitars and students' guitars. No more removing access plates to enable me to hold the jack in place and keep it from spinning while I tighten the nut on the jack. My only reservation is that some brands of guitars (some Epiphones and various Asian imports) have a smaller jack nut that this tool does not fit. I wish there were 2 sizes to accommodate these smaller nuts.

Less than versatile

The product feels insubstantial (like many budget string winders, feels like it could snap too easily). In addition, does not work well on all amp jacks (particularly those with dome-topped nuts).
