Makes the job so much easier.
Jimey 09.11.2017
I am one of those rare soles who changes tuning on their floyd equipped guitar a lot.
Since I purchased the guitar in 2014, I don't think I have kept a tuning consistent for more than three sets of strings.

BEFORE I purchased the Key, intonation was rather annoying to set up. You need to block off the trem and take off all the string tension before you open the saddle, then tune up, check and repeat until you are in the clear.

The key makes it so much easier. Sure, you still need to drop the tension when you insert the key, but once in and back up to tension you can keep the floyd floating, open the saddle, adjust, check, adjust etc until intonated. The trem stays floating, the tension stays.
Repeat for all the strings and you are done.

I would estimate it easily shaves a quarter to half of the time needed.

If forced for a NEGATIVE: No instructions in the pack. I had to watch a couple of videos to check I understood how to use the device correctly. (Ahem, I actually prefer this, as it produces less waste - I did say if I was *forced* for a negative =) )

Could've been made better

Yes, intonation on a floating bridge can be a pain in the ***.
This piece should make the job a lot easier, unfortunately it did not.
I own an Original Floyd Rose and a Recessed Floyd Rose Original, alas with neither one it worked better than without "the key".
The idea is fantastic but it could've been manufactured better (maybe there is a german counterpart? :P). The little "clamps" that suppose to hook on the Floyd unit seem to be too narrow so when you screw it into place it visually moves down with the result that you "fine-tune" your string. So when you intonate to perfection and release the "the key", your string it slightly out of tune because you've been fine-tuning it while intonating.
Also, when screwing it in place, it gets more difficult to turn the knob when the tension increases and you cannot have low tension because it will flip off.
Conclusion : It did not do the job faster than when securing the bridge and intonate the old fashioned way and the piece should have been made a lot better like a good clean solid fit to the back of the floating unit.

Perfect

Does what it says. Takes a bit of hassle out of the job saves time. Does not fit a lot of Ibanez is the only downside. Floyd Rose and similar specc with saddle screws to the rear no problem.
