Power-Loc™ Bench Connector Dogs
Simply the best all-in-one solution for connecting 20mm worktops
Watch this video to see how easily you can extend and connect your 20mm worktops with Bench Connecting Dogs.
The latest addition to our growing line of Bench Connectors, Power‑Loc Dogs feature a patent-pending innovative cam action and swiveling locking lug that eliminates the need to use a clamping knob from beneath your workbench. Simply insert the Power-Loc Dog through the top of a chamfered 20mm dog hole, turn the socket head cap screw clockwise, and watch as the locking lug rotates outward and secures your worktops together. Power-Loc Bench Connector Dogs feature a total stock thickness capacity range from 30mm (1-3/16") to 40mm (1-9/16").
Picking the Right Bench Connector
While simple clamps can be used to layer and secure 20mm work surfaces, we're partial to Bench Connector Dogs for two main reasons: they provide precision registration and alignment of your work surfaces, and they apply strong clamping pressure without taking up valuable space on your worktop. Power-Loc Dogs, similar to our Smart Connect Dogs, are designed with a chamfered lip to sit flush or slightly below your work surface.
The advantage of Power-Loc Dogs come in their self-contained clamping method. Rather than requiring an M8x1.25 clamping knob be attached and secured from underneath the table, Power-Loc Dogs are secured from the top of the table by way of an 5mm hex key or 5mm hex driver. This above-table clamping action may be preferred if the underside of your table is obscured, or if you don't wish to purchase or store additional clamping knobs.
Avoid over-torquing the Power-Loc Dog; a "snug fit" of the locking lug against the bottom work surface is all that is required.
To flush mount Power-Loc Dogs, you will need to chamfer the 20mm holes on your work surface. We recommend using a trim router with a quality 45˚ chamfer bit, as this allows you to perfectly adjust the depth of the chamfer to match these bench dogs for sale. We do not recommend using the fixed-cut-depth of the UJK Chamfer Tool which is not suitable for plywood.

Warranty & Returns
Precision parts work well with my project.
These dogs are amazing. Now dreaming of all the jigs that I can attach to my table with these. Pocket hole jig is first.
These are not cheap but they are also not cheaply made. Very high quality and work even better than expected. I would not hesitate to buy them again
precisely machined and fits like a glove
These are smart! I’ve used one set of 3 for an undermount vise that I attached to a plywood box. Because I have no access from underneath, these dogs are the only solution. The other set I used for a jig with a track that takes clamps to hold work pieces vertical. Because the holes line up with the first row (not too bulky), there is no space for a knob to tighten underneath the worktop. These dogs expand the versatility of my Walko Pro 4 enormously and I can highly recommend these, well worth the investment.
