I learned to play acoustic guitar in my late forties and I started with a fairly cheap guitar. As I progressed, I started to experiment with different brands and diameters of strings. Being a diesel mechanic, I owned lots of different hand tools. I tried all sizes and types of screwdrivers, picks, & pliers imagineable but none of them worked very well to remove those pesky little pins without marring the heads of them.
One day when I was online drooling over Martin, Taylor, and Gibson guitars I decided to buy this little "doohickey", as we call them in the south, that fit nicely into my budget.
Using this pin puller made changing strings a snap without any damage to the pins. I was so impressed that I bought a second one to keep as a spare.
This thing actually made my music sound better too because after the string change I use the other end to open several bottles of my favorite adult beverage. As the saying goes "the more you drink, the better we sound"....lol.
Seriously, buy yourself one, you won't regret it.

This is a simple, brilliant, indispensable device for pulling bridge pins. I've been using them for years and own several. Small and light enough to carry anywhere - the ones I've bought in the past were usable as a keychain, with a small ball chain looped through for that purpose. You simply put the slot behind your pins, slide it forwoard onto the pin and gently but firmly lift up. Effortless, and you will never harm your bridge and/or pins.

My ONLY beef is with the absurd price of this thing. I've purchased many identical but un-branded versions of this guy in the past for a buck apiece. One look at this thing will tell you, although it is of fine quality and plenty sturdy to last forever, that it costs pennies to produce. Granted, molds for plastic bits like this are expensive. But still... Sheesh.

    Some Fixable Issues...

    By Jean

    from Prescott, Arizona

    Comments about Dunlop Bridge Pin Puller/Bottle Opener:

    Fills a need, quite inexpensively.
    This thing does work well, but you have to remember that pulling up on the bridge pins can place stress on the bridge to body glue joint, so you need to use your thumb to hold down the bridge, while the rest of your fingers pull upward. That's point one. Next, there are 2 minor problems that can be corrected pretty easy, if you're clever. First, the tip area has multiple sharp edges which can scratch your bridge... the plastic is soft so use a very fine file to round off the edges, then finish up with some ultra fine sandpaper. I used 2000 grit, which smoothed it up beautifully. Finally, the plastic obviously contains silicone, which I think helps with getting the object out of the mold, but it's really unpleasant because it continues to come out of the plastic forever, so that whenever you touch it you get this slippery stuff all over your fingers and it's really hard to wash off. This seems to be a problem with a lot of molded plastic items from China. The fix I have found it to bake the thing for a while, and since I live in Arizona I just put it on the dashboard of my car for a month or two, and that seems to get all the nasty silicone out of it, or seal it up some way or other so that the problem is greatly reduced or eliminated. Otherwise you can wipe it off with a damp paper towel just before you use it, and it will stay clean for a short time... but several hours later, it's all slippery and siliconed up again. Ah, the pleasures of Chinese manufacturing.
    Not the greatest, but easily fixed up.
    For the price, I would recommend it.

    It costs less than one of those soy-chino-latte things at the gig you were at last week...

    Comments about Dunlop Bridge Pin Puller/Bottle Opener:

    Simply put, this device is to bridge pins what the can opener was to cans. You wonder how people got along before them. If you have an acoustic with bridge pins (ie 99.9% of acoustics on the market), you need one of these.
    Even if all this did was pull bridge pins, it'd be perfect. The fact that it is also a bottle opener makes it indispensable...
    I'm sure you can break it, but I haven't, and I'm a ham-fisted drummer.
    Like the title says, it's cheaper than a fufu coffee drink.

No more butter knives and plyers for getting the pins out!! The bottle opener...? Well ya never know when ya might need one.

              It's small and getting a good grip can be a challenge. If you have a pin that is set tight this is not the tool for you. But for the normal situation, it does the job nicely.

                          I don't normally get so excited over little gizmos, but this is a miracle product. Come on, admit it, how many of you have used a flathead screwdriver as a lever to remove your bridgepins, despite the fact that it obviously causes damage to the pins, and risks damage to the top of the guitar!This device does exactly what it says - it PULLS the pins, without exerting any leveraging force on the guitar. Don't even bother with those other devices, like the one that has the pin puller and string winder combo. That one requires leveraging force to be exerted on the guitar. Gives me the heebie-jeebies. Spend an extra buck or two and get this pin puller! It's the perfect tool for the job!

                          This will work for all but the most stubborn of bridge pins. Well made. Bottle opener is great double duty. Perfect.
                          Does what it is supposed to do. It will also pop a beer for you if the pins are too stubborn. I can't see much use for the key chain, but it is removable.
                          Well made.
                          Properly priced.

                          I don't like it due to having to pull straight up on the bridge pin puller..It's small and getting a good grip is difficult..If you have a pin that is set tight this is not the way to go.
                          The Dunlop is sturdy and will probably last a long time, being used only as a bottle opener. It's not as effective as a bridge pin puller
