Why Monkey Locks - individual mechanics with wooden buttons

Here you can buy our monkey locks individually. The tuners have 1.8mm string holes as standard. If you would like the tuners with 2.3mm string holes, please send us an email shortly before ordering with the number of tuners you want with larger string holes. Attention: We only recommend the 2.3mm holes for tuners for wound strings!

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.

With our wooden buttons, the weight of the mechanics can be reduced by up to 20% compared to our metal buttons - excellent for top-heavy guitars. The 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 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.
