Trem-Arm Tension Spring

About This Item

Your tremolo arm stays put—no more flopping around. A quick, simple solution to a problem that can drive you crazy!

Screw the tremolo arm out of your bridge and drop the ball bearing in the hole. Drop the spring in next, and screw the arm back in place. That's all there is to it.

Turning against the ball bearing keeps the spring from binding as it compresses under the tremolo arm. With the added spring tension, the trem-arm stays wherever you leave it.

Works for traditional Strat tremolos, like our #1264 Gotoh Tremolo. Doesn’t work for our other models.

Dimensions
Spring: 0.5" long x 0.150" diameter (12.7mm x 3.81mm)
Ball Bearing: 0.158" diameter (4mm)

No difference on a 60th Anniversary Fender Stratocaster

By

Verified Buyer


Unfortunately, this didn’t make any difference on a 60th Anniversary Fender Stratocaster. I’ve swapped this out with the original spring and replacement Fender spring several times, but it works exactly the same as both other options: there’s still a lot of wiggle in the tremolo bar unless you tighten it almost completely.

Used this with a Cheap Strat Clone.

By

The trem on the clone, Rokstark, is a six screw trem and the hole in the trem block is not deep enough to accept both the spring and ball. The spring by itself worked perfectly and solved the floppy arm problem.

What the Dr. ordered. So far so good. We'll see how long this works with use.

Bar too high now

By

Verified Buyer


It works perfectly as it is intended but takes up too much space in the hole causing the bar to sit way too high for my liking.

Great idea for the tremolo bar

By

Verified Buyer


The spring itself was too long to allow the bar to thread in even with a lot of pressure. So I cut the spring in half with wire cutters and now it fits and works wonderfully. Tried it with the ball on the bottom and the ball on top. On the top worked very good allowing the arm to stay in any position required for playing.

NICE FEATURE

Keeps your tremolo arm where you want it. Just make sure to remember it's in there when/if you remove your arm.

Tremolo Tension spring.

By

Verified Buyer


Works well as stated. An improvement suggestion however would be two ball bearings. One on bottom one on top of spring. It would make the arm smoother I think. The arm being threaded has a tendency to screw into the spring I think. I should investigate further as it works well as is. Just a thought.

Easy fix for annoying the tremolo arm rattle and sloppiness.

By

Verified Buyer


Does the job, perfectly. Now the tremolo arm stays in place without binding or rattling.
