Overview

The “Jack Hack Avionics Tool” is used to prevent headphone jacks from spinning while you tighten the nut—conveniently without the need to reach behind the panel to hold the back side.

This a “must have” tool set for avionics and radio technicians. It has the potential to pay for itself on those jobs that you would otherwise spend half a day pulling the panel just to tighten the jack.

The Jack Hack includes two expanding post tools: one for standard 0.25 (¼ inch) diameter jack used for stereo GA headphones and one for the smaller (0.205 inch) jack used for the PTT connection.

Excellent tool. Would suggest changing to a ball end allen key to facilitate access when a 90 degree approach to the installed tool is obstructed.

Handy tool for tightening headphone and mic jacks without needing behind-panel access. Works with both 0.250 and 0.206 jacks. Handy storage block included.

I love this Jack Hack. Best little tool for my panel installation. Really saves on contortionist moves to get to the back of the panel to hold the jacks so I can tighten the jack nuts. This makes it soooooooo easy!

This is one of the coolest tools I’ve seen in a while, this tool can potentially save you hours of trying to reach the backside of a phone jack to tighten without twisting the wires off.
