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.

Gripper Truss Rod Wrench

By
(Customer's Reviews)


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...

By

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.

I can't believe how well this worked.

I've had a bass sitting with a stripped truss rod nut and no strings in my closet for the last 3 years. It was unplayable due to severe back bow. I ordered the gripper. With minimal effort it to seconds to fix a problem which otherwise would have been a costly and invasive repair. Thank you so much Stewmac!

Worked for me

A customer brought in a strat with a stripped rod. I was a bit skeptical but thought I'd give the gripper a try. I ordered it, and it arrived in three days. I gave it a couple light taps to make sure it was well seated, and it worked! Thanks Stew-Mac!

As Advertised - Not Particularly Effective

The offset wrench works pretty well but the straight wrench is too long for any in-hole application. My old long Allen wrenches seem to work better of maybe I just am used to them.

Was expecting more from Stew Mac!

I purchased 3 for my shop but the first test use the coating started coming off in metal shards. It wasn't even a stripped truss end. I was hoping for a textured coating that would grip not just black paint. Not worth the money. Poor quality for Stew Mac.

I was sick when I stripped out my truss rod nut, saw this puppy, ordered it, and it worked like a charm!
