      The arm on my Strat's 6-point tremolo, not surprisingly, became wobbly and loose in the block. Making it impossible to position and difficult to use accurately.

      I bought these springs on a whim, and now my trem arm is PERFECT. It stays where I need it to, and no wobble whatsoever.

      This is a no-brainer purchase for any Strat player with a vintage style tremolo.

      According to most sources these are made specifically for Fender tremolos, not Squier or any other brand, but if you have some heavy duty wire cutters you can cut these to size to fit the arm cavity on your tremolo.

      I have a Squier strat with a 2-point tremolo that the arm was feeling really loose even though it was screwed in all the way. These springs by themselves were a little too tall to fit the hole and I couldn't get the bar to screw in, so I trimmed it down just enough so the arm would go in and tighten down a bit.

      Bottom line, it does stabilize the arm a lot more, and doesn't kill the note when you use it aggressively. The arm feels more stable now, though it does still rock in the hole a bit.

      When I do get a Fender strat, I'll write a follow up review.

        It's a bag of springs. They work. They are easy to lose, which is why the bundle a bunch together in one packet.

          I've been playing Strats since the 60s, and I NEVER NEW about the tension spring ... EVER! That's crazy, but I bought a bunch of them for my Strats, Jazzmaster and Jaguar. They work GREAT!!! NOTE: A lot of guitars, I have bought off the wall and the spring was never there! Get yourself some!

              Does it exactly what it should! Just pop the spring in the arm hole, it falls in deep. Screw in the arm (Don't over tighten) and you'll be set. I don't find them easy to lose personally, as long as you're careful of not holding your guitar facing down parallel to the ground. One pack of 12 will suffice.

                    This is what you need to tighten up that Tremolo arm. With this spring in place it stays right where you want it.

                        Unscrew the tremolo arm, drop in a tension spring, and your whammy bar stays put until you swing it out of the way. Fantastic!!

                                    Its just a spring in a packet of springs. But its the right sized spring to insert into the tremolo arm hole that will keep your tremolo arm where ya want it.
                                    Does exactly what its supposed to.
                                    Insert,Screw & position. snug it up gently and enjoy
