Tri-Flow Pin Point Lubricator

About This Item

Lubes tuners, tools and hardware! A drop of Tri-Flow® is all it takes to lubricate tuning gears, tremolos, roller bridges, truss rod nuts, and more.

A luthiers favorite, this light viscosity penetrating lube contains super-slick Teflon®, plus additives to help displace old gunk and prevent corrosion. It won't congeal and attract dirt like household oils. A little lasts a long time, and the handy pinpoint metal applicator puts it right where you want it.

Supplied in 0.25-ounce size.

Apply Tri-Flow sparingly to the bearing surfaces of open-back tuning machines: a small drop at each worm gear post, and where the worm and crown gears meet. Don't overdo it! Unlike WD40® and household oils that can collect dirt (which eventually impairs tuner operation), Tri-Flow contains Teflon®, so frequent and excessive lubrication isn't necessary.

How to clean and lube dirty old guitar tuners

Dirty tuners filled with dried gunk: Dan Erlewine's working on a guitar that's been sitting untouched for over fifty years. The tuners are too stiff to use, but he gets them going again by using heat, naphtha and an injection of lubricant. He makes a nifty little tuner-holder jig, too.

Lubricating guitar tuners

This week, we're in Dan's Guitar Garage for a Tune-up Special: how to clean and lube old guitar tuners, and get them working smoothly again.

Used on my 1960 Gibson EJ50's Kluson tuning gears

By

Verified Buyer


I have an old 1960 Gibson acoustic guitar my Grandfather left me. The Kluson gears were a little stiff so I watched a you tube video and stumac had a video where he took them off the guitar and first cleaned them (I used lighter fluid per his recommendation) and then applied triflow to the gears through the little hole on the back of the tuners and worked them loose. It worked very well, and definitely do not put the oil on the tuners while on the guitar.

Tight tuners

I tried graphite and a few other things but they didn't work. The Pin Point Teflon lubricator worked like a charm. It immediately fixed the problem. The tuners are now like new.

It didn't help my 63 Telecaster much, the keys that needed to be freed up still need to be freed up.

Works as advertised

I have a 2006 National Style O-14 and the open tuners were getting a bit stiff. I applied the Tri-Flow with the Pin Point Lubricator and the tuners started working great again. I love the needle like applicator to reach hard places. Highly recommend.

Really gets the spot!!!!

By

Verified Buyer


I love the size and design of the container. There's a small metal mixer ball like in paint cans to help blend the solvent to insure quality. A very slight squeeze thru a sturdy syringe type applicator is all it takes to apply. Great for nuts, saddles and machine heads. Peace

Great for lubing-up the ol' Floyd Rose...

By

Verified Buyer


Great for lubing-up the ol' Floyd Rose and other "pinch-point" spots on a guitar's hardware, especially a tiny bit on the fine-tuner threads. Also, useful to drop little down into the saddle-screws where they meet and thread or point of impact.
