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.

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.

not much other choice for removal

This seemed to be the only solution to removing the knurled nut on a pedal steel end plate aluminum casting without leaving cosmetic gouging on it.

Don't waste your money...

I never have any complaints about Stew Mac stuff save a couple of things and this is one of them. I gotta be honest, this has marred every single nut that I've used it on. The jaws are really too sharp and it doesn't provide any grip on standard nut as it only seems to fit metric nuts. It will totally destroy Switchcraft flat nuts.
Very disappointed.

Can't live without this tool.

If you have a Les Paul and don't have one of these tools, it's just a matter of time before you will get one. It can be adjusted to fit, and perfectly grabs that annoying switch nut and tightens it to torque---yes, I said "torque". The wrench is torqued so that you don't over-tighten it and ruin your nut or switch. Amazing and HIGHLY recommended!!

Pretty good...a few issues

So, like many others I have usually used a pliers - very carefully - and Blue tape to tighten the loose pickup selector on my Gibsons. Recently, I became aware of this tool and figured -Why Not!. So it arrived and I set about to tighten the perpetually loose knurled retainer nut. Right away there was a minor issue. My LP has no "chip" (treble/bass label), so I was pretty sure the tool was going to scratch the top. First I put a bunch of Blue tape on, but this was not very helpful as it required lots of tape and then the tool would not grab the retainer nut located on the sloped top of the LP. Next, i made a little "shroud" - see pic - out of a file card by making an impression of the tool on the file card and cutting out the disc. This worked fine. But still the tool, was very stiff to turn...the threads are rather poorly cut and it was hard to turn while holding on the nut. I opened and closed it a few times & it loosened up a bit, but it was still tricky to get the tool completely around the nut and make sure it sat as flat as possible. I found the best position to do this is with the guitar vertical in a stand, so I can hold the switch in back, place the tool, and turn it without it slipping. The tool is a good improvement and the whole process took only 10-15min -next time 5min. I have lots of other SM tools and would say this one is not up to the traditional quality I expected. But it worked.....so it was a success.
