We noticed a problem with the solutions on the market for securing the guide rail against bench dogs. They never really felt secure so we wanted to come up with a better solution for locking the guide rail into place against the bench dogs.

That is when we noticed that Dave Stanton has been looking for the same solution, so we teamed up with Dave Stanton to sell his Stanton Dog Locks in America. Dave Stanton created the Stanton Dog Locks to secure the guide rail up against our long bench dogs. Check out his YouTube channel to get a more in-depth view of the Stanton Dog Locks.

The new v2 version was redesigned to allow a full length cut. One side of the dog locks will come with button screws, and the other will come with thumb screws. The thumb screws can be unfastened easily allowing you to move or remove the guide rail from the bench without needing any tools.

We've also included in an option to purchase our 20mm or 3/4" diameter long bench dogs which were designed specifically to work with the Stanton dog locks. Our long bench dogs are a full 70mm in length and allow the full length to be used. If you purchase them together, you will save 20% on the long bench dogs!

Great Dog Products!

I ordered the 3/4"to20mm convert-a-dogs, with knobs, & the Stanton dog locks. I use the Bora Centipede table tops with 3/4" dog holes.
I absolutely LOVE cross-cutting with my Makita track saw now!!!
Thanks! :-)

I love the simplicity of this rail accessory.

Do what they should do

They do what I expect them to do. Nothing more, nothing less

Another precise cross cut option for those with an MFT style work bench

Unlike a hinged style cross cut rail the use of these "dog locks" allows you an accurate cross cut placement anywhere within the bench dog matrix. Thus providing balanced support for cross cuts on longer boards. The brain child of woodwork innovator Dave Stanton offers this accurate,cost effective method for crosscuts on an MFT style table. I'm happy to see this accessory now available in the US. If you have an MFT style work bench I find this to be a must have device.
