Why Monkey Locks - Locking Tuners with Wooden Buttons?
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, whereby you can of course also drill new screw holes for your monkey locks.
With our wooden buttons, the weight of the machine heads can even be reduced by up to 20% compared to our metal buttons - excellent for top-heavy guitars. The wooden buttons also give your guitar a noble look and feel great!

And best of all: 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 for it, 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 machine heads 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 light aluminum and thus also contributes to weight reduction.
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!
