About This Item

Fixes the nastiest cracks!
A cracked guitar side is a difficult fix, especially when the sides of the split are uneven. Here's how to pull a crack together and glue it neatly and permanently.

1. Close the crack
Our Crack Clamp uses a guitar tuner on a smooth polyethylene base. With strong thin wire, it winches the crack shut. The polyethylene won't scratch guitars, and glue doesn't stick to it.

2. Glue a perfect wooden cleat
Something new to the world of lutherie is our hardened steel Cleat Cutter. It creates perfectly round patching cleats from any wood you choose. Each cleat has a center hole for the Crack Clamp's wire. Put glue on the cleat and tighten the crack closed for a neat, professional repair.

Pump glue into the crack
Send glue deep into the crack by using the air gun with your compressor. Gentle pressure (about 10psi) does the trick.

For very long cracks, use more than one Crack Clamp at the same time.

Complete set includes:
Crack Clamp
Cleat Cutter
Air Gun (standard 1/4" NPT thread for air hose)
Suction Cup
Pin Vise
Wire
Clamp Tie Block

Just What I Needed

By

Verified Buyer


A customer brought in a brand new Bouzouki that got damaged in shipping from Greece. The round back that was cracked and uneven presented a challenge as far as how to clamp it. The crack clamp in combination with the other tools pulled the crack closed and the seam glued evenly. With a little wood filler and some finish touchup, it turned out great. My customer was amazed at how I was able to make the crack disappear with hardly any visible signs of the damage. Making customers happy is what this business is all about and this tool made it happen. - Alan Morrison, AM Guitar Works

I just used this on 2 back repairs and it worked perfect at 10 PSI. Much easier than trying to massage/pump the glue into the crack my old way.
