The Shubb Fifth String Capo was the first gadget that put Shubb on the map all the way back in 1974. Operated using an intelligent lever instead of a spring it delivers the ideal level of pressure to fret the string without muting the sound.
The 5th String Capo for Banjos is attached using a slim, dovetailed bar which mounts flush to the neck. This part of the design is to ensure that it remains sturdy and does not obstruct other strings or the players fingers.
The Fifth String Capo may require fitting by a luthier or tech, however if you wish to work on your Banjo yourself this is also straightforward as this updated design only uses 2 mounting screws.
