Fret Puller

About This Item

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. 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.

Handy, easy, effective

(Customer's Reviews)

Does what it says, with no hassle. A bit loose tension retainer, and for some reason, i have marked a favorite side that seems to work better on that initial edge pull...


Two thumbs up!

This little rascal is a pleasure to work with! You can actually "walk" the fret out of the slot in practically no time or effort!



(Customer's Reviews)

I used these pullers on a VERY vintage and fragile fretboard. The frets were filed almost flat, but this little gem snuck them out with very little chip out!!! A specialty tool for a specialty job!!!
