    What are the benefits of this jack? More secure? Better tone?

    more secure , it pushes on both side of the jack so it is always in contact ,and there is a satisfying click when you plug your guitar , now the tone the only reason it affect tone is because it made me happy :D,

    I have a couple of these and I took them off after I had installed them for a week. They work mostly as advertised, but I found (and didn't like) that this method more than doubles the force required to plug and unplug the cable..

    EDIT: Two pairs of contact prongs (one set for ground, one set for signal) very firmly hug the plug.. But no TRS option, only TS.

    I found them a little hard to push , but I tested them before installing , and I opened a little the action of the tip clip , I just calibrated the force a litle bit , it helped ,

    Good point! I can probably open up the plugs a bit, I still have them, though I use TRS (aka stereo) plugs almost exclusively now due to switching between active and passive pickups frequently. I would get another from them if they came out with a TRS version.

    Yep, been using them for a couple of years now.
    Sigler/920D uses them on their prewired PGs.
    But I don't think they're available in stereo for guitars with active systems or stereo output.
