Jack Installation Tool

About This Item

No fumbling, no fishing!
Quickly install a 1/4" jack in a hollowbody guitar when you can't reach inside.

Resoldering a 1/4" jack in a hollowbody guitar is a common job. The problem is reinstalling the jack when you can't reach inside. Guitar techs devise lots of methods, but we like this simple no-fuss solution: feed the Jack Installation Tool through the guitar, plug it into the jack, and pull the jack snugly into place. No fumbling, no strings, no misalignment.

The slim brass tool is bendable and 18" long (457.2mm), to work in practically any f-hole or round-hole guitar. A capture ring prevents the plug from pushing too far into the jack.

Quickly installs 1/4" endpin jacks, too.

Thanks to Julyan Wallis (The Guitar Doctor in the UK) for this idea!

TIP: Before retightening the jack nut, protect your solder connections with Frank Ford's ingenious Jack The Gripper tool.

Build your own

Many of the tools that Stew-Mac comes up with are genuinely great, but this is a tool that you can make yourself. I guess no one remembers that once upon a time you had to fabricate your own tools.

This is an ABSOLUTE MUST if you work on hollow body electrics and install endpin pre-amps in acoustics.

So SImple But So Valuable

This is one of those super simple tools that provides value far beyond its cost. Anyone who has tried to install a pickup jack in a hollow or semi-hollow body electric guitar, or in an acoustic guitar knows how difficult it can be to get the jack in the proper position, then thread the nuts on. Forget the old fishing line trick...this tool makes the job super simple and quick. Well for the $12.95.

I like that it's easy to flex the shaft to fish things around to where I need them to be.
