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 20mm 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 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!

Dave is an Australian DIY enthusiast who does a weekly hour of YouTube and FaceBook videos. Viewers saw him demonstrate a homemade plywood prototype of these MFT guide rail clips, and, within weeks, he had produced a CNC version for the Australian markets. He now has imported them to the American market, and they are well worth the money.
These Log Locks are just what I needed for my homemade MFT table. It does precisely as it is intended to do and does it well. They hold my track securely and do not move, but you are able to slide the track up when needed to change out lumber. Well thought out. Glad I bought them. Highly recommended. Thank you Mr. Stanton.
Purchased their production of the Stanton bench dog locks. Very nice workmanship, everything was supplied and fit perfectly even the color matched “festool” green. Very pleased with purchase.
Excellent built and very useful
