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.

A Tool completely useless

A Tool completely useless, difficult to use, poorly built. I prefer the traditional method.

Good Idea, Junk Tool!

It takes awhile to intonate and set up a Floyd. This looks like a great idea. The tool has a little plastic knob which is impossible to turn under tension, so whats the point huh. It also applies pressure on the bolt which is your fine tuner so you really cant keep your hand off the thing. As I said, looks great on paper but when in use, toss it. I can work faster the old fashioned way. I'm out $20. Been tweaking Floyd's since my 1st in 85.

Great Idea but Junk Tool!  Lynnwood Wa.

The Key

This tool is a sanity saver. I absolutely can not stand it when intonation is off. Adjusting a Floyd's intonation is really a test of one's patience. Having this tool simplifies the process a great deal. There's still a learning curve to deal with when using this as tilting it up can knock your intonation off or if you aren't careful, this tool can slip off. That's not a design flaw in the tool as much as the tool maker trying to deal with the Floyd's design.
If you love your Floyd and can't stand having your intonation off, The Key is really money well-spent. Jmho.

This tool is great for intonating original floyd rose guitars. I had to tune in C standard and without this tool I don't think I would have gotten the job done.
