Our guild rail protection caps provide many protection benefits.
The harsh and sharp edges of guide rails are inconvenient, and they can catch on many things such as clothing or ribbed hoses. Using our protection caps, you will prevent the guide rail from snagging on you (or other things you don’t want them catching on). It will also help protect the guide rail from random bumps from your tools or workpiece.
Guide rails can be expensive, so protecting them is crucial for prolonging their life. The cost of the protection caps is much cheaper than having to replace a guide rail with bent edges.
Splinter Guard Support
All modern guide rails come with a splinter guard attached to the edge to help with tear out. Sometimes the adhesion can sometimes come off on the ends of the rail. Our guide rail protection caps will help keep the splinter guard snug to the rail and reduce movement.
Our protection caps will help mildly with hose deflection, but they are not designed to fully prevent the snagging of hoses on the end of the guide rail. If you're looking to specifically prevent hoses from snagging on the guide rail, then look at our options for hose deflectors.
The protection caps make a great addition for safely storing the guide rails, whether you're on the move or you're storing them on the wall. They easily fit onto the guide rail without needing any tools with a friction fit.
