    If you are referring to the Hipshot detuner it is a device usually attached to the bottom E machine head ( although some people like Michael Manring use it on all the strings) and enables you to detune at the flip of a switch. It basically turns the cog of the machine head. It means,if set up right, you can get to the note i.e. Low D without having to spend time retuning. I hope this helps, somebody else may be able to explain better but this will show you......
