As a full time professional guitar maker for 44 years, I have tried every “jack tightener” device to appear in the marketplace.   The new JackTight tools are, hands down, the best I have ever used!  Perfectly machined and packaged with a perfect companion wrench, the JackTight is THE tool for any guitar repair person, builder, road tech or player.   I cannot recommend the JackTight highly enough!   Don’t wait until you need one….get one now and have it when you need it!

Herman Eng, Guitar ER West, Los Angeles“I’m a backline technician and guitar tech for the Paul Simon and Sting international tour 2015. I’m taking my JackTight with me because jacks come loose all the time on tour and nothing works faster or better than a JackTight. Truly an innovative and useful tool.”

As for the JackTight, I would say that every guitar player who plays through an amplifier needs one of these things (every sound engineer and guitar tech too). I won’t leave for a gig without it.

Mason Razavi TestimonialThis is a great tool that I highly recommend to any working guitarist. Time is at a premium when setting up for a concert, and the last thing you want to deal with is finding the right tools to fix a loose jack on a guitar or pedal. The Jacktight is innovative in that it provides a quick and easy solution to a common problem without having to open up your instrument or risk damaging the finish.

JackTight Product review by Adam LevyI’m not the handiest of fellows. I’ll usually take even the simplest repair to a professional. But when the input jack started to come loose on one of my favorite pedals, I figured I could probably fix it myself with a JackTight tool kit. Lo and behold—in under two minutes, the jack was fixed and my pedal was back in action. Now I know I can keep the jacks tight on all of my gear—pedals, guitars, and amps. Fantastic.

I have played guitar professionally for almost fifty years now and can’t remember how many times I had the loose jack problem. It always happens when on a gig and no music repair shop is around. Lots of frustration. Recently searching the web, I found “JackTight,” it looked great on the video. So for the totally reasonable price, I ordered the tool with the wrench. What testimonial can I better give than this. The tool works as advertised. It’s just great. I have gone to all my guitars today and tightened the jacks, just cause I can. I am confident that I am prepared for that next loose jack. Thanks Chris for a great product.

The JackTight tool is an essential addition to my arsenal of guitar-helpers in my case. I don’t need to fret about a loose jack ever again…which always seems to happen at the most inopportune times. Easy to use, super compact and handy…how did I ever make it without one?

Joe "Handyman" NegriJust received my brand new JackTight. I’m somewhat of an unhandy “Handyman” but, I found the JackTight functional and easy to use. My luthier and guitar technician is also big fan of the JackTight. Many thanks.

Beans Sousa, GuitaristI gig and travel a lot, and a loose input jack before a show is a total inconvenience.  I stumbled across the JackTight while searching the Internet for a solution on how to fix loose input jacks on my guitars. I’ve needed JackTight for years and it’s going on the road with me. Love it!!

As owner of a guitar company, we can certainly use the best tools available for our techs. Thank you for bringing such a great little tool to the guitar industry!

Jamie Holka MusicI just wanted to turn all my guitar head friends on to a new product called JackTight. We’ve all had our input jacks on our guitars come loose from time to time.The proper way to tighten it has always been to un-screw the entire jack as not to disconnect the wires inside by twisting the whole unit. This device allows you to stablize the inner jack so you can tighten without taking the whole thing apart. My friend Chris Shahin from San Jose has developed a real time saver here. Great for all players and especially guitar techs.Go to and check it out.

Frank MarkovichThis tool works great!  I have now placed it in my tool kit that I take to gigs.  I have used it on two guitars and it solved the loose jack problem on both of them.  Some guitars are very difficult to tighten the nut any other way.  My Gibson L5CES is particularly a problem guitar.  The jack is constantly coming loose but now I do have a solution.  I was able to tighten up the jack with no problems.  Last week at a gig the guitar started acting up due to the loose jack.  Today I used the JackTight and it now is fine.
