We're sorry, this product is no longer available.
New capo designed by Nick Campling for use on most banjos or mandolins. Just squeeze it onto the strings and you are ready to go. Release with a flick of your thumb. Unique spring clutch allows precise operation with less pressure on neck and fingerboard. Very simple one hand operation.
The wrap spring clutch consists of just three elements: a fixed hub, a moving hub, and a spring whose inside diameter is just slightly smaller than the outside diameter of the two hubs. When the spring is forced over the two 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 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 this application 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.
