Why Monkey Locks - single 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 machine heads with 2.3mm string holes, please send us an email shortly before ordering with the number of machine heads with larger string holes you want. Warning: We only recommend the 2.3mm holes for machine heads 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 lug holes with 135 degrees, although you can of course also drill new screw holes for your monkey locks.
With our wooden buttons, the weight of the tuners 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!

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.
