A banjo capo allows the banjo player to play in many different keys while still playing rolls and patterns out of the open g-tuning. Many banjo licks and patterns to not transfer well to other chord positions, so the capo allows the player to use familiar open tuning licks. The 5-string banjo also needs a mechanism to cap the fifth string. A sliding fifth string capo is the quickest and most accurate method, but many players feel the fifth string capo gets in their way instead install spikes in the frets under which the 5th string are placed to raise the pitch.
