A no-brainer for Floyd users!
Bockwurst 18.08.2017
If you like to swap different string gauges or are searching which brand/type/gauge set you like the most, you will definitely LOVE the sure claw made by Schaller! Why? because there is nothing worse than to screw both screws a quarter of an eighth millimeter to the left to adjust the spring tension of a floating Floyd Rose system while leveling the bridge with the body. In comes this nifty item, with the turn of one allen wrench (hex key) you can adjust it very precise to get the desired tension on all springs at once ànd keep the sustain block level. Some back covers (the ones with open slots) will even let you adjust it without unscrewing the backplate! The claw also adds a little more sustain. The only downside is that there is no spot to properly solder/screw the ground wire, but this can be done by bending the wire around the screw when you install the claw (if your wire is long enough).
Pro : Much more easy to adjust spring tension, adds little more sustain, rock solid installation.
Con : too bad there isn't a proper way to fasten the ground wire

Excellent solution to the constant tweaking of tremolo spring claws
HalfManHalfGear 08.02.2020
This is a very well made and designed solution to make adjustments to the spring claw in guitars with a trem system. Just one screw, adjustable with a hex key / allen key, adjusts the tension of the springs without fuss and if a small access hole is drilled in your guitar's trem backplate, can also be performed in seconds without the prior removal of screws and foresaid panel! Just be careful that when you fit it, the mounting screws don't poke through into the guitars pickups / pickup cavities.

More German ingenuity!

Leo Fender got the spring claw right, when he designed the synchronised vibrato.

Schaller have made it much easier to install and adjust. So much so, that tremolo springs can be adjusted up and down using an allen key through a small hole in the the back plate, without removing it.

This is very clever.

Be aware though that the mounting screws will come through a middle pickup cavity in a Strat style guitar. Be aware of this before ordering.

Over all, a fantastic product.

Bit pricey but worth it

If you got tired with the "quarter turn left screw, quarter turn right screw" style of spring tension settings with that wobbly metal plate, this is the solution for you.
I hesitated a lot to buy it, as it is not cheap, but in the end, I'm very very pleased with it. I've installed into an Ibanez RG with 2 Goldo backboxes, all my issues with the tremolo has gone.
Quality is top-notch, a massive piece of metal, probably justifies the price.
A small issue is that the ground wire doesn't really have a place to connect, but I wrapped around one of the screws under its head before screwing it in, seems to do the job.
