Jack The Gripper

About This Item

Ingenious! Holds the jack steady so you can tighten/loosen the nut without disassembling your instrument or amp.

A loose nut on a 1/4" jack is trouble. It's no fun to watch the jack disappear into your guitar or amp as the nut falls off, or to break a solder connection when you tighten the nut and the jack turns with it.

Designed by veteran repairman Frank Ford, Jack The Gripper is a smart tool that can save you a lot of time and work. Insert it into the jack, and the knurled cam locks in either direction, to hold the jack firmly while you tighten or loosen the nut.

Recessed jack? No problem—the tool also includes a clever adapter for use with your 3/8" square drive socket.

Instructions included.

I have no idea how this works, but it worked the first time I tried it. It is wonderful how you folks create purpose-specific tools for things like this. Thank you.

This IS the one you are looking for...

Rhythm Guitarist had a chronically pesky jack. I loaned this to him, as soon as I received it. Three days later, he had disassembled his pedal board, tightened ALL the jacks, checked the rest of his guitars, and checked the jacks on his wife's keyboard.

Thanks for bringing this tool to market!

If you own a Tele or a Strat, get one! No more taking the guitar apart to remedy loose jacks. Wish I owned one of these puppies decades ago. Works on all guitars and pedal jacks too. If I lost it I would get another. Thought price was a little high but would buy it again.

You will use this for a few seconds at a time and it will save you an untold amount of frustration. Yes there are other ways to make due, but why risk your gear. I only wish it wasn’t so expensive so that I could buy a couple more.
