What is a HexHider® you ask? It is a new tool designed for guitars with locking trems. It allows you to keep a 3mm hex wrench handy on all your locking trem guitars. (a.k.a. Floyds)
Why do I want a guitar specific hex tool? When your fine tuners are out of turns, or when you break a string, it's great to have a hex wrench right where it needs to be, with your guitar.
So how is it different? Our patented design, with its powerful magnet and unique shape, allows it to attach securely to the back of your guitar's tuners. Not only does the magnet hold the tool on the guitar when you're not using it, it also holds the wrench in the bolt magnetically when you ARE using the tool. Cool.
"L" is for losing. Standard "L" shaped hex wrenches fall out too easily, so they get set aside, left in your case, or just misplaced. "L" wrenches are perfect tools for a lot of things ... but guitars isn't one of them.
I love my Floyd-equipped guitars. EVH got me excited to play guitar and I've always loved the tone and tuning stability of Floyd-equipped guitars. And who doesn't love a dive bomb every now and then?
However, I used to get sooooo frustrated when I'd need to tune up just a tiny bit I'd run out of fine tuner turns. Ugh! Where the HECK did I leave my hex? Don't I own a bunch of them? Where are they right now?
Of course, they are always "somewhere else." Maybe in a guitar case or a drawer ... but not with me. You don't need the hex often, but when you need it, you NEED IT!
So I started working on a better solution. I knew I didn't want to drill holes in my guitars, and I don't need the intonation wrench handy, so I focused on an easy to use and always with the guitar 3mm hex. That's how HexHider came to life.
The "ah ha" moment was when I tried using a powerful Neodymium magnet to keep the hex attached to the tuners. BOOM! Problem solved!!! So after testing many diameters, lengths and grades of magnet, I found the right size and power to keep it securely on the guitar.
HexHider is a 3mm hex, so it turns the bolts on your nut, your bridge and the bridge posts for nearly all Floyds. I used mine for over a year before bringing it to you. It's solid. It's simple. And that's exactly what I wanted.
My goal was to make my Floyd-equipped guitars as easy to tune and play as my non-Floyd guitars, without sacraficing the stability and tone that the Floyd Rose system is known and loved for. I think I did it.
I hope you dig your HexHider. I think it's one of those product that after you see it you say, "Wow, that's going to make me play my Floyd-equipped guitars even more." I know that's what has happened for me.
If you're like most, you'll find that once you start using it, you’ll never go back to a Floyd guitar without a HexHider. Check out the reviews online. People love it (and we appreciate them tell the world).
I love you fine tuners, and you'll never frustrate me again.
PS We back all HexHiders with a lifetime warranty, so you know we've always got your back.
When not in use, the HexHider's magnet will hold it firmly on your tuner ... even through dizzying headbanging session.
We use a powerful Neodymium (rare earth) magnet to enable the HexHider to stay in place, both when it's hidden away and when it's in use.
The magnet is connected to the hex shaft, so the HexHider stays connected and won't fall out of the nut. This patent pending design means that while one hand is turning and tuning, the other hand is still free to rock the crowd. \m/
Use it to unlock faster string changes, even a with a recessed bridge.
Need to change a string? Step 1: dive-bomb the bridge. Step 2: insert the HexHider. Step 3: turn.
Whether you have a floating bridge or a body contact bridge, there is plenty of room to turn.
Lastly, return the HexHider to where you found it, behind the headstock. Done.
HexHiders come with a LIFETIME WARRANTY. If you find a way to break it, we'll replace it. It's built to last. (But if you saw it in half, or melt it down with a blow torch, that doesn't count, okay? That's only fair, right? )
The patent pending HexHider is made of 4 strong parts that make it virtually indestructible. Top to bottom: A powerful Nd magnet, an ABS case, a hex reiforcment bar, and a carbon steel 3mm hex shaft.
During our research, we went all the way back to '77, when Floyds were launching, and what we found was that all Floyds use a 3mm hex and a 2.5mm hex, and some use a 2.0mm hex (Speedloader and Pro). If you want to be doubly sure, check out your model at FloydRose.com. We know some Kahler systems use 3/32 wrenches. The Ibanez Edge trem uses a 3mm hex for the nut and bridge, and a 2.5mm for intonation, like a Floyd. So the HexHider is a great match for those guitars as well.
Like what we're doing? Wish you could help out? Well ... maybe you can. Sometimes Floyd guitars get a bad wrap as being "hard to use" and we think HexHider changes that by making it fast and convenient to unlock the nut and tune. Let's get the word out there.

The best thing for a Floyd equipped guitar since the fine tuner.

My "L" shaped hex wrench was so awful I decided to sell all my Floyd equipped guitars.
