Gripper Truss Rod Wrenches

About This Item

Dang! Somebody used the wrong size wrench, and now you can't adjust that worn Allen truss rod nut. Fear not, our Gripper wrenches can save the day!

Each wrench has a 3/8"-long end that tapers from slightly undersize to slightly oversize, giving you a snug fit to turn the nut and avoid a costly replacement job.

Our veteran guitar technicians developed these high quality steel truss rod wrenches. The length, comfortable rubberized handles, durability and variety of sizes let you perform formerly difficult truss rod adjustments with ease. The straight wrenches are 12-1/2" long, keeping your knuckles safely away from the peghead.

#6210-G Gripper wrench has a special angled handle for tuner clearance on 6-in-line pegheads. For 1/8" Allen nut; 2" reach.

Special notes for the soundhole wrenches
4mm is for Hot Rod truss rods. #6110-G is for pre-August 2007 Martins; #6114-G and #6212-G are for later Martins. Triple-bend wrenches provide clearance under the guitar's braces.

Ok, the neck on my used Fender Precision Bass had some truss rod nut issues. Whoever owned the bass before was careless when adjusting the truss rod and had rounded out the 5mm truss rod adjustment socket. I would have to loosen the strings whenever I wanted to adjust the neck because of the stripped socket. Since buying this tool I can now adjust the neck with full string tension on it. Very pleased with this purchase.

Using other tools and methods I almost ruined the neck. This Gripper Truss Rod made the task so easy. Now the neck is usable again.

Very good tool. I had to file down the tip to get it to fit snugly into nut. It certainly did the job but may now be too loose for the next job and will have to start fresh with a new tool.

Great product; one real annoyance...

This group of 'Gripper' truss-rod wrenches has worked very well for me. Gently tapping the wrench into the truss-rod adjusting-nut with a dead-blow hammer or mallet, really helps 'set' the tool into the nut, to create a solid 'bite' on badly damaged adjusting-nuts.

The only problem with this product, is that none of the wrenches' bright-red handles are marked with their size! Some of them have a tiny, stamped-in label in the steel shaft, such as you would find on a standard Allen wrench, but since the wrenches' steel shafts are hardened, they are jet black, which makes the embossings very difficult to see. To make matters even more amusing, these wrenches are all tapered (a key feature), which makes them a bit more complicated to measure...

So, the first thing you'll be doing, is using a Sharpie (or similar) pen, to label your new collection of wrenches. Otherwise, it's a fine product.

Exactly what I needed!

I was struggling to adjust my truss rod with a smaller allen wrench running into the strings. This allows me enough straight clearance do do my tweaking without interference.
