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.

Lifesaver!

Rewiring an ES-335-type guitar is hard enough before you get to the last step of re-seating the output jack. Jack the Gripper makes this the easiest part of the process

I don't truly understand how it works?
I really grips the jack, don't know how, but it works!

I bought this tool however, I didn't imagine how indispensable it was going to become. One of the best first purchases I made.

Jack The Gripper Rocks!

I gotta admit that after using this tool I still don't quite understand how it works, but it works very well. Just push it into the jack, and use your guitar tech wrench to loosen or tighten the jack. Jack The Gripper locks in place until you pull it out.

Very useful little tool

Received the tool, tightened the offending output jack, problem solved.
I know exactly what I’ll reach for the next time a jack comes loose.

It grips

A must have if you ask me. My only gripe, the knurled cam needs some sanding. :D

Have always had the need, not the tool

Used this the day it arrived. So comforting to tighten the nut on the jack hole knowing I am not doing internal harm. Perfect tool. I wish I had thought of it first.

It just plain works - Excellent for a busy shop

I have used it with and without the socket wrench and it worked nicely every time. Good tool, worth the money if you do a lot of guitar work.
