<tc>8 good reasons for our Monkey Locks</tc>
<tc>Aluminum snapping wheel</tc>
Our clamping wheel snaps into place when unscrewed and can therefore never fall off. So that you can always rely 100% on your Monkey Locks, even in live situations. The clamping wheel is made of light aluminum and thus also contributes to the low weight of our locking tuners.
Save up to 20% weight with our wooden buttons compared to our metal buttons.
We also plant a tree in India for each sold set of monkey locks with wooden buttons.
<tc>Bigger string holes</tc>
Our Monkey Locks on the 1st to 6th strings offer 0.70 strings (1.8mm) hold.
Monkey locks on the 7th to 10th strings even up to 0.90 strings (2.3mm)!
<tc>18:1 Gear ratio</tc>
Our 18:1 gear ratio guarantees an exact tuning of your guitar - exactly the right gear ratio.
We offer our Monkey Locks in sets for 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 and 12 string guitars. Likewise for all possible arrangements of the machine heads on the headstock. With us you are guaranteed to find what you are looking for - for each of your guitars!
<tc>Lightweight, compact and closed design</tc>
Our Monkey Locks are characterized by their compact design and low weight. Due to the closed design, they are completely maintenance-free (no oiling necessary) and insensitive to dirt.
<tc>Suitable for almost all guitars</tc>
The majority of all guitars have 135 degree screw holes for the machine heads, which is why our monkey locks also fit a large number of guitars. Of course you can also drill new holes if your guitar has different screw holes.
<tc>Quality and packaging</tc>
Each individual tuner and button is checked again before shipping and the result is recorded on your quality card!
For us, the most sustainable packaging is also the one that can be reused, which is why we only use our premium packaging Doypacks.
What makes our Monkey Locks - Locking Tuners so special?
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 lug holes with 135 degrees, although you can of course also drill new screw holes for your monkey locks.
We currently offer our Monkey Locks in the three colors Chrome, Black and Gold and with 8 different button variants. Both in metal and in wood (ebony and tamarind). With our monkey locks with wooden buttons, the weight of the mechanics can even be reduced by up to 20% compared to our metal buttons - excellent for top-heavy guitars. Likewise, the wooden buttons give your guitar a noble look and feel great!
And the best: For each set of Monkey Locks with wooden buttons sold, we plant a tree in India to give something back to nature. You don't have to do anything, we'll take care of it.
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 our monkey locks are not. Because of the closed design, the Monkey Locks are maintenance-free (no oiling required) and not susceptible to dirt. We call the clamping wheel of our Monkey Locks the Snapping Wheel, because it automatically engages when unscrewed and can therefore never fall off, so that you can always rely 100% on your Monkey Locks even in live situations when changing strings. The clamping wheel is made of lightweight aluminium, which also helps to reduce weight.
For 6-string and 12-string sets we offer 1.8mm (0.070 inch) string holes. In our sets for 7 to 10-string guitars, the 7th to 10th strings even have 2.3mm (0.090 inch) string holes - for the really thick strings!
