A lightweight, locking-action capo for 12-string guitars that won't bend your strings or pull them off center.
The Shubb Lite lightweight aluminum capo is for you if you're into removing mass and reducing the weight of your 12-string guitar.
What makes the lightweight Shubb capo so special? For one thing it has an ingenious design: its patented locking action provides unrivaled power, speed, accuracy, and ease of use. One smooth flip of the lever locks the Shubb Lite capo securely in place and removes it just as quickly.
Additionally, the Shubb capo doesn't create tuning problems. Its soft, resilient rubber is specially designed to work just like a fingertip, so the capo doesn't bend the strings over the frets. Its closing action is just like your hand, so the Lite capo doesn't pull the string off center. As a result, no retuning is necessary!
Is a lightweight capo for you? Maybe, or maybe not. Some people associate a certain amount of heft with quality, and feel that weight is necessary to properly do the job. If that describes you, then a lightweight capo isn't your style. But for years, Shubb has been aware of another school of thought wherein guitarists have been removing mass from their Shubb capos in an attempt to reduce their weight.
One thing is certain: if you often carry your capo around in your pocket, your trousers will prefer the Shubb Lite! The Shubb Lite capo for nylon-string guitars is made from aerospace-quality aluminum and is nickel plated. It weighs less than one ounce.
Since 1980, Shubb capos have set the standard against which all others can be measured. Shubb capos are the first choice of more than a million musicians worldwide. Serious guitarists will settle for no less.
Precisely machined and carefully hand assembled, the Shubb Lite capo is manufactured without compromise. Snapping it solidly onto a guitar neck and then removing it will instantly confirm the capo's reputation of excellence.

Comments about Shubb Lightweight Aluminum Capo for 12 String Guitar:
I needed a good capo for my Alvarez Yari 12 string. The neck on this guitar is not much wider or thicker than on most 6 strings, and I could use just about any capo, but wanted one specifically designed for a 12. It worked great when I first got it, but then I could have sworn that it opened up a little becuase it all of a sudden did not seem to clamp as tight as it had before. In fact, I have been running it with the lock positioned halfway, which is tricky to get it at, but I've never had it slip from there. This is for any fret above the 1st. On the 1st and hardest fret to capo on, it does not hold down the thinner low E and A strings without muting out of tune. And this is with it locked at the halfway mark. Needless to say, I will be looking for another capo with an adjustable clamping mechaninsm. It could also be that the neck of my 12 is generally smaller than average, which may also explain the tolerance points being off here.
Not too many features on a capo.
The build quality is decent on this device, however I thought it opened up a little after few clampings, in other words, slightly changed it shape in the negative direction so not to clamp as tight.
Not a great value for my guitar anyway. A 12 string with a fatter thicker neck might benefit better.
