Adjustable Toggle Switch Wrench

About This Item

Here's a special wrench that's ideal for the round knurled mounting nuts on Gibson® pickup selector switches.

Your pliers WILL mar the nut — this is a much safer tool, with adjustable chuck-style jaws for a good non-slip grip. Thanks to the deep socket, you won't even have to remove the switch knob. Made of sturdy steel with durable plastic handle.

Adjustable Toggle Switch Wrench

By

This is a tool that may only see use once in a while but it works well when you do need it to remove or install round knurled ring nuts from guitar or bass switches. I used it to replace the 3 way switch on a Rickenbacker 4003 and it worked great. The tool was not very expensive and did not cause any damage to my valued Rickenbacker. I hope you will also find this tool as useful as I have if you decide to purchase it .

Awful

the tool was poorly manufactured, the screw action is stiff and actually grinds tightening the collet. To tighten it while on a switch nut, its effectively useless... the $5 plastic tool i bought online works better and no chance of stripping the knurl.

Not as easy to use as it looks like it should be, but it does the job properly.

Specific tool for a specific purpose

Yes, it is a specific tool for effortlessly loosening/tightening the mounting nut on a Gibson toggle switch without having to remove the switch knob. It does exactly that.

Takes a little getting accustomed to.

The tightening/loosening technique seems a little counterintuitive to me, but once you get the hang of it, it works pretty well. Just be careful to keep the tool from touching the surface as it can scratch it you're a little careless. Other than that, it does a great job gripping the knurled nut on the toggle switch and is better than anything else I've used.

Toggle switch wrench to the rescue

By

Verified Buyer


This tool was used to remove the round locknut on a toggle switch on an overhead switch panel in a helicopter. The overhead switch panel was finished in a black matt finish. I tried to loosen the round locknut around the toggle switch with pliers. I didn't scratch the finished surface but I was lucky. The locknut was on to tight for the pliers. I ordered and received the "toggle switch wrench" and was able to loosen the nut successfully without damage to the matt finish. It worked great!

So much better than pliers

Bought this for my guitar repairs, and since I have an affinity for Les Paul guitars, this toggle wrench is almost necessary for the constant pickup swapping I'm fond of doing. A great tool, and a great idea!

Slick Tool!

The right tool for a sometimes tricky job. When fingers aren't tight enough, pliers tend to squeeze and jam the nut, not to mention the risk of scratches with pliers. Wish I had known of this tool years ago!

I had no problems with this tool. Works great and I did not find it made any makes on the guitars.
