I know the title seems very scary but allow me to explain. I bought this with my tailor because it's a very cheap capo and honestly I wanted to try something different than the ones I have now. I figured it's extremely inexpensive and it can live in my Taylors case.

Be warned.
This capo can scratch your neck in two different ways.

1. If you use the first hole on the capo which you will be inclined to do. You may scratch your neck because the metal on the capo is coming in contact with your guitar neck. So no matter how tight the elastic is or how thick your guitar neck is you must I repeat must use the second hole for the metal on the first one will be covered by elastic.

2. Taking the cable off the capo can be tricky. As soon as you unhook the elastic the metal rings on the elastic can scrape your guitar neck. Now I've scratched my tailor when I first tried to escape on it and I've also decided to order another one for my Martin backpacker.

You wonder why there's two ways it can scratch your guitar because I scratch to separate guitars.

As a side note I've used the old walnut trick to get rid of the scratches. If you do not know this trick be sure to look it up.

Also another side note to take this cable off properly I would push to keep up against the strings so that when you touch the elastic it does not scratch your guitar neck.

I have to say I'm shocked that no one else on this forum has had this problem that I've had but I felt that you needed to be warrant. Now that all that is out of the way. I really love this capo even if it only lasts a year or two it holds on tightly to my guitar strap. And also went on the guitar body the capo takes up little to no room allowing you full use around the capo. I hope this helped and heed my warning.

Better than a pencil with a rubberband

It's not a 'G7' but it worked in the 60's and it works today!

    Comments about Dunlop Elastic Heavy Single Capo:

    I was looking for a capo that I could give as a gift to a couple friends just learning guitar but not spend a lot of money and this fit the bill. I also bought one for myself and use it all the time so I'm very happy with my purchase and so are my friends !

      it ok and works. the little grommets will scratch your neck if you're not careful. I reversed my strap as the finished side of the grommets is much smoother.

              Using on a Ric 12, works great on lower frets, but on the higher frets, you have to use the 2nd hole.

                  Comments about Dunlop Elastic Heavy Single Capo:

                  I bought this for two reasons. First, obviously, the price was too good to pass up. Second, though - I've used a similar item on my ukulele for quite a while now, and I love the little thing.

                  The elastic on this is a bit stiff, but should loosen up and be easier to work with after it gets some use, and the little metal bar inside slides to make it easier to use without scratching your guitar.

                    Comments about Dunlop Elastic Heavy Single Capo:

                    Yes, it is old school. Yes, it is not flashy like some of the newer styles. But, it works and works well. The clip-ons are quick and a bit easier. But, they tend to get in my way. This one does not. For those concerned about it scratching your guitar neck, no worries if you do it right. The elastic strap does a fine job of protecting. I had one of these many years ago and it worked brilliantly. Saw this at a very good price and bought four. (I lose stuff!) Give it a try. I use it in this little cantina on the beach in Baja California where I gig regularly. Works like a charm.

                      Dunlop has been making capos for a very long time. The bigger ones are easier to use, and have 2 layers of strap on both sides. I used them on a Gibson Super 400. Never a problem, other than having to replace one once in awhile when it wore out. These are smaller and lighter. You have to be more careful when putting them on to avoid buzzes. But you get used to it. The price is a bargain.
