The Banjo Hooks Guard

Comfortable banjo playing has always been a problem as long as banjos have been around.

In 1918 Albert D. Grover invented and designed a “Clothes Guard for Banjo”, which consisted of two metal snap clips and a loop of heavy webbing.  It was only on the market for a short time.

It was a great idea but had a few areas that needed improvement.

The Banjo Hooks Guard is a new and improved version of this old idea.  A banjo accessory that has long been needed!

  • Provides a secure surface to prevent the banjo from slipping.
  • Prevents the metal hooks and brackets from snagging and catching on pants or skirts.
