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.

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.

Great Tool!!!

All the reviews here are correct. Yes a tad pricey but the value of being able to fix a problem input (especially on a Strat style input) make it a great purchase. Highly recommended.

I just received this tool today and it works great! It appears to be well made and arrived very quickly. Seems a little costly, but you always pay a little more for a good tool. I'm sure this will last a lifetime as long as you don't loan it out to your friends!

Best Tool in My box

The Gripper tool works just how it was made to do...it stops the jack from twisting on the inside, when tightening down the jack and jack plate nut..It holds the jack on the inside, stops the pulling against wires that can loosen and break off the soldered connections joints from the jack making Your electric guitar useless....Its the best tool for the money for the all the guitarist out there ..it can save You time, and money, and it can even save the show so it can start on time because Your guitar is working right....

No more loose Tele sockets

By

Verified Buyer


This tool is just fantastic. With it sockets can be really tightened, more than with just holding by hand. As a piece of kit it's kind of pricey but if you work for a living fixing guitars or amps, it will be a time saver and a life saver...
