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.

Ideal Tool for the Job

Installing tremolo springs can be tricky, of course, but it's an easy job if you have the right tool. This is the right tool. I added two springs to my Strat to deck the tremolo. It was a piece of cake with this handy tool. I would never want to attempt spring installation or removal without it. Highly recommended.

easy spring changes

gotta have this for trem spring changes or re-situating the springs for balance. Will save the finish on your guitar from dings from using the wrong tools or springs flying off against the backside. StewMac's customer service is the best too and you'll get it super fast.

Very helpful thing

It's so simply to install the springs on my floyd guitars now! I used to remove floyd without unlocking the nut while clearing my fretboard or doing something with frets. This hook helps me a lot to return my floyd and springs back quickly and guitar always stays in tune. Thanks for this great invention.

Real time saver

This is something someone should have made a long time ago! The very tip did break off on the first use, but it had no impact on how the tool works. I'd be lost without this thing.

We're sorry the Spring Installer broke on the first use. We're adding a free replacement to your next order. Thank you.

Another small 'must have' tool

For tremolo spring installs these work very well. For spring removal I still use a pair of needle nose pliars.
