A whole new take on capo design that works beautifully and now comes in gold.
The G7th 405 Performance Capo Limited Edition in Gold is designed for enhanced performance and it's simple to use. Not only that, it looks and feels great! Push the lever to release the arms. The G7th Capo fits snugly behind the fret. Squeeze to tighten it from above or below. Simply press the lever to release the capo.
The wrap spring clutch consists of just 3 elements: a fixed hub, a moving hub, and a spring whose inside diameter is just slightly smaller than the outside diameter of the 2 hubs. When the spring is forced over the 2 hubs, attempting to rotate in the direction which opens the capo wraps it down tightly on the hubs, positively engaging them.
Rotation in the other direction, to tighten the G7th Capo onto the strings, is not restricted. To release the capo, the control tang is moved in the direction to unwind the spring, thus releasing the clutch.
The beauty of this type of clutch for use in a guitar capo is that it can be adjusted in tiny increments. The clutch mechanism is a modified tried-and-tested design used in printers and copiers to provide a simple decoupling and overrun device.

Comments about G7th 405 Performance Capo Limited Edition Gold:
Overall, it's a great capo worthy of owning.
This creative capo is absolutely wonderful. You can acquire replacement rubber inserts. The warranty is lifetime. It's a joy to use. It applies even pressure is placed across the fret. Easy placement and removal; and it can be placed on either side of the neck.
Don't be fooled by people who trash G7th products. Example: a Classical version capo is only offered in some catalogs, and some people say it's not tight enough. That version is meant for nylon stringed classical guitars with less neck tension. G7th offers 12 string models too. A shorter banjo model is also offered. The G7th limited capo also comes in black, or with Swavorski crystals for an outlandish price. I believe that more care is taken to build the limited version capo. It's flawless. The release lever is very smooth; and the amount of pressure applied on the fret is controlable with the push of a finger for one hand usage.
The cost is more than double for this limited version which works the same as the G7th regular capo.
