Gripper Truss Rod Wrenches

About This Item

Dang! Somebody used the wrong size wrench, and now you can't adjust that worn Allen truss rod nut. Fear not, our Gripper wrenches can save the day!

Each wrench has a 3/8"-long end that tapers from slightly undersize to slightly oversize, giving you a snug fit to turn the nut and avoid a costly replacement job.

Our veteran guitar technicians developed these high quality steel truss rod wrenches. The length, comfortable rubberized handles, durability and variety of sizes let you perform formerly difficult truss rod adjustments with ease. The straight wrenches are 12-1/2" long, keeping your knuckles safely away from the peghead.

#6210-G Gripper wrench has a special angled handle for tuner clearance on 6-in-line pegheads. For 1/8" Allen nut; 2" reach.

Special notes for the soundhole wrenches
4mm is for Hot Rod truss rods. #6110-G is for pre-August 2007 Martins; #6114-G and #6212-G are for later Martins. Triple-bend wrenches provide clearance under the guitar's braces.

Professional Quality Luthier Tools

These gripper truss rod wrenches are extremely well made. As a luthier shop, we rely on vendors like StewMac for the specialty tools we can rely on to get optimal results.

I doubted, I was wrong

I really really rounded my truss rod nut badly, trying to get them out with creative attempts that all failed. I thought I messed up to get them out with the gripper wrenches because they were round AF (just want to emphasize it :D). Well, I got the gripper, put it in, applied some kind of pressure and the nut INSTANTLY loosened and I could extract it. I am impressed, these things just work properly and solve the headache of removing freaking truss rod nuts!

Yes!

I was so worried that I would never be able to adjust the truss rod of my beloved old guitar because it was stripped. An Internet search came up with this tool, I bought it, and it worked like a charm. May guitar and this ranch are now good buddies.

Works but why aren't the sizes labelled

By

Verified Buyer


I bought a few of these because I work on different guitars. They do the job. But why in the world didn't Stewmac label the size on the handle? It is a simple thing to do and would make it easy to grab the size I know I need for the guitar in hand.

It's okay but I would not buy another one!

By

Verified Buyer


I have been adjusting truss rods for well over ten years and bought this to work on a vintage Japanese Epiphone guitar. It did not work very well but my expectations were not all that high to begin with since the fitting seemed worn out. There are so many options for these tools that it would be more helpful to list guitar compatibility since Stew Mac likely has much more knowledge on the correct types to use. Measured the nut with a caliper to make sure of size but still seemed to loose to work correctly.

I had a stripped truss rod and a bowed neck. Now i only have a stripped truss rod, it works perfectly.
Amazing product and great customer service as well!

Works like magic!

The neck on my MIM strat was sooooo bowed, it thought the guitar was trash. But the gripper did everything it said it does, the 3/16 wrench took care of the bow in about 5 seconds! A major thank you!!!!

Life saver for stripped out truss rod nuts (or any other hex head screw).

By

Verified Buyer


There isn't much to say other than these work as advertised. I bought one to use on a bi-flex rod that was stripped so badly it appeared round. There were literally no flats visible. For anyone unfamiliar with this truss rod design, it is incredibly hard and time consuming to replace the adjustment nut. The gripper wrench saved me hours of work. For anyone thinking that they have an Allen head too far gone for one of these to work, I'll reiterate what I said above: the nut I used it on was round for all intents and purposes. It was so rounded I wasn't even sure it was a hex head at first. The gripper wrench turned it without a problem. Enough said.
