OK

AdamM, 15.05.2015
OK but a bit tricky to fit to the extent of it becomgin annoying. I'd suggest looking into the simpler methods of capoing the top string as this is quite a permanent measure to take to enable you to play wacky tunings on your banjo without retuning it.

Mounting difficult

Philipp497, 17.02.2011
The capo is quite difficult to assemble, on a higher quality banjo I would only advise people with a complete set of watchmaker tools. In the long version is a bit tricky that three screws are needed. In the middle of the Capo comes the screw with countersunk head, at the two ends of the screws with round head, which then act as a stopper for the sliding Capo part. If the screw with countersunk head protrudes even beyond the edge of the rail, Capo will not move over it.

You should anyway pre-drill the holes for the screws (requires wafer-thin drills!). This is only possible if the neck of the banjo is completely disassembled and clamped in a workbench. If you dare, you will get a perfect assembly. Otherwise, scratches and possibly skewed mounting are unavoidable, so you better have the capo mounted by a specialist.

Okay, you have to know everything, but why only 3 out of 5 stars? Quite simply: the set screw, with which one fixes the Capo and loosely, can in the open position (5th string free) snore. In contrast, a small tension spring is provided, which can easily be lost, however, because the screw has no lock and can be accidentally completely unscrew when loosening the capo from the Capo. The Capo would be perfect if the adjusting screw does not unscrew from the thread, but only screwed back and forth within the thread.

To the colleague with the tip to tune the fifth string to a f # and then simply clamp the capo to the 6th fret: how should you then include the 5th string in the normal play and pick up notes on it? Then you would have to grab all the notes on the 5th string a bunch higher ...

Another addendum: the Capo splint makes it very difficult to grasp notes on the 5th string with the thumb, because the thumb has to make the extra way around the rather edgy splint. This is essential for the "melodic style" or "Keith style". If you do not just want to play traditional Scruggs style or Clawhammer, you should look for another Capo solution.
