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.

Worth twice the price

I purchased the adjustable toggle switch wrench from StewMac after having used the black plastic version for a while. The black plastic wrench stripped out pretty quickly and didn't accommodate several of the sizes of toggle switch "nuts" I've come across...

This one is just the ticket: heavy-duty, made of good stuff, adjustable, and always easy to use.

Since this has a metal edge that can/does touch the guitar, I'm always careful to seat the wrench and tighten it - with care of the instrument's finish in mind. With a few seconds of forethought, I've never damaged any of my instruments (or those of my "customer" guitar players... often for free, yes?)

It is a common condition to have a guitar with a "spinny" ring nut on a switch. Just pop open the cavity, grab the back of the switch with one paw and turn the wrench with the other paw - voila! A super-tight grip that won't spin any more.

Another thing this wrench is useful for? Getting rusted/corroded switch ring nuts/retainers loose. I've done more than a few 80s instruments with pig metal rings sealed to pig-metal switch shafts. This wrench has freed every one...

Buy one of these! They're worth it!

The only tool for the job

This is the best tool for removing and tightening Gibson-style pickup toggle switches.

Finally, one that works !!

" Always use the right tool for the right job ", and this IS the right tool !! I had purchased two of these from other suppliers over the years, and each claimed theirs to be the correct size, they weren't. Stew Mac's IS the correct size.

I had a Gibson S1 for a wire mod sitting on the bench just waiting for this to arrive. When it did, I immediately ran it to the shop, and when it fit, I nearly cried. That was about 4 weeks ago, and I've used it several times since, always with the same care and pride that I give all my repairs. Thanks StewMac, my life has been a whole lot simpler since I got this wrench.

The Right Tool for the Job

I really like this tool. I also have the plastic one because StewMac didn't have this one when I was looking for a tool like this. The plastic one does not have the grip or work anywhere near like this one!

File Under "Must Have"

Put down the pliers and step away from your bench!

This tool is miles better than the old plastic tube "socket" and does a pesky job correctly.

Now whenever I need to fix my Les Pauls I have this at home and I don't need to drive all the way to GC to get them fixed:)

This is the only toggle switch wrench I've ever used that was worth a darn. High quality and should last forever.
