Pliers slip and the spring goes flying off to ding the guitar's finish or scrape your knuckles. Here's a better way: a simple, inexpensive 6" steel hook that's the right length to make stubborn spring installation remarkably easy. It gives you a straight non-slip pull—you'll wonder how you got along without it! It helps protect your fingers as well as your guitar.

Perfect tool for the job

The tremolo spring installer is the perfect tool for the job. Simple, but gives you the leverage you need to pull back trem springs without damaging the springs or finish on the back of the guitar. Highly recommended for any guitar project.

Spring installer.

Avoid scratches and use this tool! For the price, speed of use and avoiding accidents, it is nearly mandatory to get one of these.

works Great!

This was awesome to use, I would like to see the handle at a 90 degree angle to the hook on future models

Tremolo Spring Installer

I've used the tremolo spring installer in the past and it has worked quite well. Today I was amazed by the quality of this little tool. I was doing a brake job on my truck and couldn't get a very heavy spring to go back on. I decided to try the Stew Mac Tremolo Spring Installer knowing that I would probably destroy it, or at least bend it out of shape in the process and have to buy a new one. To my surprise I was able to pull the heavy spring into place without ANY damage to the tool. Keep up the good work Stew Mac! (And no, I don't usually use my Luthier tools on my truck).

Five Stars

Hey Guys, Love everything at your store. I have gone from a tinkering in the garage on my guitar to a Repair Tech coming in demand. It is all because of everything you offer and this spring installer is a perfect example of your great equipment and guidance (I.E. Dan's DVDs). Keep up the FIVE STAR work.

Great... Amazing... etc...

I've had about a year of dealing with guitars that have trem systems... and I already NEEDED this desperately. I can only imagine how happy others are about a tool like this being invented.
Thanks for having this.

Great Item!

This spring installer really works when your tremolo is stopped or if you can't pull up enough to remove the spring by hand. However, take out and put in THE MIDDLE SPRING FIRST to avoid more complications.
