Simply slip the Key into place over the string lock screw, loosen the saddle mounting screw, and enjoy fingertip control of the saddle position for accurate intonation.

The Key works with Original Floyd Rose design tremolos only. It won't work on Ibanez Edge, Ibanez Lo-Profile, or Schaller locking tremolos.

Easy to use

Makes intonation on a Floyd dead easy. Must have device for people who are confused about intonation.

Useful, but could be much better

I finally got a key after a long period of procrastination. This does what it is advertised to do. However, there are a few little things that I would love to see: Make it compatible with ibanez edge trems. A larger thumbscrew would make small adjustments much easier. Add an Allen key socket to the thumb screw. Use the same size as the Allen key used to lock and unlock the saddles on a Floyd. This way you can use the Allen key to adjust the position which works if you have large sausage fingers.

Must have for Floyd Rose trems

this is a must have for any Floyd Rose trem guitar as it takes the guess work out of intonating saddle movements. StewMac's customer service is 2nd to none also and you'll get it pronto.

Good but there are a few tricks to using

I had trouble using at first but when I realized that I could push down on the socket head screw to put it in and get it out, that made the rest easy. Chris

This is an outstanding little gadget, saves tons of time and frustration. It really takes the guess work out of intonating a Floyd rose bridge. I also purchased one for my friend he was astounded at how a simple tool could save him so much time.
Thank you Stewmac

Great tool with a little logic

...the proper way to use the tool is to loosen the string and move the saddle in small increments, it usually don't take more than two times to get it right. The people that are having problems are the ones that don't loosen the string before the adjustment is made. If in doubt watch a "How TO" video on "You Tube" and you will master this.....

Although I could just loosen the saddle and adjust by hand, this little gem will hold everything in place perfectly. It saves a ton of time! I'm glad I invested in one!

Very Useful Tool

Simple and does what it is supposed to do. If you have any problems with this tool, perhaps you should just let someone with patience do your adjustments. Makes things a lot easier. Worth it to get it.
