    Small Vibration dampener made by a Japanese company. It looks like you must insert it when stringing...running the string through one hole, over the bulbous part where there is a slight groove to hold the string, and then through the 2nd hole.

    They would also be handy for tightening a line whose tension must be adjusted...like a tent guy wire...for those too lazy to learn a taught-line hitch. Depending on how big they are.

    I was hoping for something like the original Fischer dampener

    You may also be able to install these after stringing by placing (and locking) the holes at string intersections.
