What makes our Monkey Locks - Locking Tuners so special?

We currently offer our Monkey Locks in the three colors Chrome, Black and Gold and with 11 different button versions. Both in metal and wood (ebony and tamarind wood) or as our extremely light and non-slip Megalight Monkey Grip Buttons. With our Monkey Locks with Megalight Monkey Grip Buttons or Wooden Buttons, the weight of the mechanics can be reduced by up to 20% compared to our Metal Buttons - excellent for top-heavy guitars. Our Megalight Monkey Grip Buttons or Wooden Buttons also give your guitar an elegant look and feel great!

And the best thing: For every set of monkey locks with wooden buttons sold, we plant a tree in India in order to give something back to nature. You don't need to do anything, we'll take care of it.

Our Monkey Locks - Locking Tuners are not only suitable for electric guitars, but also for acoustic guitars or lap steel/pedal steel guitars. They fit any guitar with a 9.9mm to 10mm hole diameter in the headstock and screw tab holes at 135 degrees, although you can of course also drill new screw holes for your monkey locks.

Our Monkey Locks are characterized by their compact design and low weight. The gear ratio of 18:1 guarantees excellent handling and precise tuning. Guitar tuners with an open design are often susceptible to dirt and wear, but not our monkey locks. Because of their closed design, the Monkey Locks are maintenance-free (no oiling required) and are not susceptible to contamination. We call the clamping wheel of our Monkey Locks the Snapping Wheel because it automatically snaps into place when screwed on and can therefore never fall off, so that you can always rely 100% on your Monkey Locks when changing strings, even in live situations. The clamping wheel is made of lightweight aluminum and therefore also contributes to weight reduction.

For 6-string and 12-string sets we offer 1.8 mm (0.070 inch) string holes. In our sets for 7 to 10-string guitars, the 7th to 10th strings even have 2.3 mm (0.090 inch) string holes - for really thick strings!
