Snugs up the trem as well as one might expect from any spring. If you keep your bar in on a, more or less, permanent basis you may want to try tape, etc., but these springs work as intended. Personally, I rarely use the trem-bar (I keep the hole taped) preferring instead to use the heel of my hand or my finger tips. Still, I always manage to lose the originals and just like to keep 'em around. If your original spring worked well enough for you, these certainly will, too.

Trem arm springs .. Would be good But..

I have had my strats for decades, and I like to use the trem bar, BUT, on the Made In Mexico Strats, the springs slide right through the hole down into the body of the guitar, rendering the spring useless. On the MIA American strats, they catch and hold where you can turn the bar round and round until the spring starts working. In the Made in Mex Strats, there is no chance for the spring to work because there is no chance for the spring to do its stuff. I have read about this and some users suggest using a piece of plumber's Teflon tape in advance of placing the spring in the guitar trem hole, but that doesn't work either, if there is no place for the spring to be supported. the trem bar spring and the tape both slide through if there is no support point. Sounds like this needs a manufacturer retro fix of some kind.

Tremolo Arm Springs

By Ed

from Rochester, NY

Comments about Fender Tremolo Arm Tension Springs (12):

Somewhat stiff, can be difficult to break in. Otherwise though, a genuine Fender replacement part is a genuine Fender replacement part. They do their job perfectly and there are twelve of them. They also work well in other, non Fender guitars

      expected these springs to actually have some spring... instead they just fully compressed and stayed there.

        Comments about Fender Tremolo Arm Tension Springs (12):

        The spring is necessary and works very well. I use these in all my original American Strats. They do however have a tendency to fall out and get lost. In fact most players don't even know that they exist. I use a round magnetic cover over the trem hole when the arm is removed so that the spring is stored safely. I sell these kits at many popular on-line sites. :)
