    Easy Peasy 02/22/2023
    By David Roselius
    My wife had long had a southwestern styled craft wall clock, which recently stopped running. Your catalog, which was amazingly easy to use, appeared to have a direct replacement part. That turned out to be true, even to accepting her existing hanger. The clock is now up and running, and installation took only minutes. We are extremely satisfied. Even the new hands are a plus, being easier to see. Not sure about the "free hands" part, though; ours cost a couple of dollars.

    Best Customer Service! 07/10/2019
    By Lauren J.
    I'd made a mistake with my order and, after realizing it, frantically emailed the company in the middle of the night knowing they ship in a day. First thing, someone fixed my error and sent my package out immediately. My project was time sensitive, so she really saved me! Package came quickly and the clock works great. Would highly recommend this company!

    Exactly what I was looking for 02/26/2022
    By Munish Taneja
    Ordered 3 clocks to replace one i made when I was much younger
    After researching the size and type i needed, I ordered them, they got perfect! Didn't end up using the hands or minute hand because my old ones fit. Would have been nice if there was a way to figure out of the old hands would fit the new clock

    Perfect for my clock. 08/01/2018
    By Amanda Fraser
    When I purchased this mechanism I wasn't sure if it was going to fit the clock I was fixing. But the measurements displayed were absolutely dead on. Was super easy to set up and uses a double A battery. So happy with this product, if I ever fix another clock, I will be buying from here again!

    Easy to put together. Happy with the results. 01/21/2021
    By Katrina Anderson
    I was pleased to find that the package came quicker than I expected.
    The clock mechanism was easy to install. The hands trimmed easily and I used a black sharpie to blacken the edges after I filed the ends.
    Very pleased with everything overall.

    My first attempt to fix a clock and the people were VERY HELPFUL. When I received the products I ordered the instructions to install were easy to follow. My 13 year old granddaughter actually put it together and it works great. Would do it again.

    So So 10/08/2018
    By Mel Clench
    The mechanism I ordered was great, the problem was that there should have been a replacement mechanism from a previous order that did not work, the invoice shows it as shipped but it was not in the box. First time I have ever had a problem.

    Review of mini quartz clock 01/12/2019
    By Terrell Rodefer
    This quartz movement unit worked perfectly in the wooden clock I needed it for. But I think I could've use just a little longer shaft. The clock hands just barely escape being tightened against the clock face.

    By Lee Potzler
    On my second try I finally got the motor with the correct shaft length ordered. From the US it is impossible to return a motor in an efficient way. So make sure you know the correct shaft length before ordering.

    By Radek Kucera
    The clock pieces I order were exactly what I wanted and they work perfectly!!

    Install a FRESH Duracell or Energizer Battery (But not a rechargeable type).  In our experience, these are the only batteries that are reliable for clock mechanisms. Sometimes you will even try a separate pack as not all new packs have perfect batteries.

    Choose hands - the options here will fit your clock motor. We recommend our new, balanced hands.

    Click the tab "Choose Hands" to see hands that go with this clock motor.

    Optional Accessories

    Closed End Caps - This movement ships with an open end nut so you can also attach a second hand.  For a different look, choose a closed end cap - we have options in black and brass color.

    brass end caps for clock motors quartz

    Brass End Cap

    black end cap for quartz clock motors

    Black End Cap

    Hanger - Choose a hanger that slides over the clock motor if needed for your clock design.

    We also sell regular picture hanging hardware at great discount prices!  Shop here for versatile ways to hang your clocks and pictures.
