Trem-Arm Tension Spring

About This Item

Your tremolo arm stays put—no more flopping around. A quick, simple solution to a problem that can drive you crazy!

Screw the tremolo arm out of your bridge and drop the ball bearing in the hole. Drop the spring in next, and screw the arm back in place. That's all there is to it.

Turning against the ball bearing keeps the spring from binding as it compresses under the tremolo arm. With the added spring tension, the trem-arm stays wherever you leave it.

Works for traditional Strat tremolos, like our #1264 Gotoh Tremolo. Doesn’t work for our other models.

Dimensions
Spring: 0.5" long x 0.150" diameter (12.7mm x 3.81mm)
Ball Bearing: 0.158" diameter (4mm)

I used this on my mij squier strat. Took some pressure to get the threads started once in it works well.

not for Squier II without shorter spring if first threads are loose

It was cheap but so was the piece of electrical tape I used instead of trying to dissect of small hard spring. I put it away for perhaps a rainy day and a trem it fits

This product had the spring and bearing. I had been using just a spring which did not work well. The ball bearing is a critical part of this device. Very pleased with the results. I can put the tremolo arm where i want and it stays put. I do not use it much but do for a couple of old surf songs. Ventures type stuff. I’ve been trying to learn some David Gilmore’s style and use it then as well. But he is hard to cover. I’m giving it a bit of a break. His tone is difficult to replicate but still fun and a challenge.

Should work (sometimes).

It seems to be twice as long as needed. Ordered 2 so I can experiment with one with various spring lengths. We'll see how it goes.

Too long

I dropped the ball and spring into my import Squier Bullet Strat (COB), and it wouldn't allow the first thread on the tremolo arm to start. I shortened the spring a bit, and got the tree to start, but only a few threads before the arm was tight and not move at all. So I took the cutoff end of the spring, dropped it into the tremolo, and it was still showing a lot of threads on the arm. So I removed the ball, and dropped the spring back in the tremolo, and it works good enough for me.
