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.

Must Have

Before the spring installer I'd say installing a trem spring was like trying to fix a loaded rat trap... not fun. This tool is simple, inexpensive, there's no more springs bouncing off the walls. A true time saver and finger saver.

Ridiculously easy

Having wrestled with enough trem springs to dread the task, this tool makes it ridiculously easy. The first time I used it, I ended up saving loads of time (and sore fingers) when I found myself removing/replacing a couple sets of springs.

OMG! No more scaring the cat

I have shot so many springs around the shop using needlenose plyers that the cat will not come out from under the workbench. This nifty little hook tool made life so much easier. I had no problems with it and I didn't worry about marring the paint. This is the only tool I will use for changing out springs now. It is worth every penny!

No more ripped fingers for me!

I used to use a pair of pliers and try to pull the spring to the claw with my hand, but I had to help the spring along with my finger because my hand and the pliers were not strong enough. This resulted in cutted fingers, and a lot of pain. I was finally so sick of it I believe I ordered it Saturday night and got it the following Wednesday.

It took me about a minute to get the spring in, and I floated my Floyd Rose Special Tremolo on my ESP LTD M103FM. I have four springs in now, two on the left and two on the right, leaving the middle one open. I needed this tool because my guitar came set up with a set of 9's, and I changed the strings to all 10's. This is an incredible tool, and I use it by pulling it toward the claw and I find that easier than what is in the picture. Thank you Stew Mac!

i dont miss the spring snap finger trap!!!

I used to use a flathead in the circle end of the spring to attach to the claw. That worked ok 90% of the time if your not constantly working on guitars or adding or subtracting springs. I work on to many guitars not to have this in my toolbox i finaly said one day.

I was actualy waiting for the old one you guys sold in the early 90's to return but never had. (The screwdriver style handle) Oh well....i dont miss the spring snap finger trap!!! - 1 star for the appearance

Ingenious Tool!

I bought this tool in the event the guitar tech I was using needed it to install a brass block on my Jackson Soloist, he declined.
I used this tool for the first time without any issues, although I tried the way it is pictured, and discovered if you use it to remove the spring at the claw, instead of the block, it is less troubling. This is a keeper!!
