Works as advertised but pricey
basadam, 27.09.2019
This is specifically for Fender American basses that use threaded nuts but I'm told it works equally well with Hipshot Ultralites. It works as advertised to increase the break angle between nut and tuner. It seems sturdy enough not to break or bend under pressure.

With the old style tapered (not fluted-shaft) tuners the improvement was marginal at best, carefully winding the string around the post will fix most (if not all) problems without needing this piece of gadget.

But the fluted-shaft tuners seem to have an inherent problem, in which the string sits higher than desired no matter what. Stealth retainer really helps with these tuners, which brings the question: Should Fender charge separately for something that fixes their design problem?

In summary, this is a quality product which does what it's supposed to do but it should be available at a lot less price.

A nice stealthy Fender drop-in solution
Jernej V., 06.02.2021
I ordered this product for my Fender USA Standard 2005 Bass.

It was a direct replacement for the washer on the tuner. The product works well enough, it corrects the string angle making it closer to other strings. The angle could be a bit steeper but the functionality is not compromised.

CON: The angle could be a bit steeper.
PRO: It works nontheless.

Works as advised.

I put it on the A string of my Fender Jazz Bass and make the string sit a bit more firmly in the nut slut.

This little thing s grate mod to your bass if your string goes out of nut or buzzes. With this retainer you are enabling grater force to be applied to the nut of the guitar.
