M5 Star Grip Knob Set for TPG Adapters (Pair)

(5 reviews) Write a Review
  • Enable tool-free connection between your TPG Adapters and guide rails.
  • The M5 Star Grip Knobs are short enough to avoid interference with the track saw motor housing and battery, so long as you don't need to cut more than 1.5" deep.
  • Here you can see the two additional M5 Star Grip Knobs in place of the standard flathead screws that usually attach the TPG Adapter to the guide rail.


Star Grip Knobs are sold in pairs (purchase "1" quantity and you will receive two knobs).

An Easy, Tool-Free Way to Attach Your TPG Adapter

If a tool-less attachment of TPG Adapters to your guide rails is preferred, as some customers have told us, these optional M5 Star Grip Knobs can be used in most situations. Note that if you are using a TS55 track saw with these knobs, plunge cuts deeper than 1.5 inches (38mm) will require switching back to the standard M5 flathead screws to avoid interference with the TS55 track saw motor housing and/or batteries. We have tested these knobs with the TS75 EQ and have confirmed these knobs don't interfere, even on full plunge cuts. A friendly customer also confirmed that his Makita XPS01PTJ cordless track saw achieved nearly 46mm of cut depth before touching the knobs; a loss of 5mm in total cut depth. If you are using another track saw, verify you have at least 11/16" (~18mm) of clearance between the top of the TPG Adapter and the bottom of your track saw motor housing when fully plunged.

These optional M5 knobs are compatible with the Slide-on TPG Adapters and Drop-on TPG Adapters only.

    This product is great but would be better if the head is flat with a flip handle that way when you need to adjust you flip the handle turn and flip down that way no interference

    Excellent addition to TPG Adapters

    Posted by Chris Laskey on 27th Dec 2022

    These are a worthwhile upgrade if you use the TSO TPG Parallel Guide system frequently. Being able to adjust the entire setup without the need for an allen wrench is great. Faster adjustments and one less tool to keep track of. I have a 18v Makita track saw (XPS01PTJ) and Powertec rails. With the knobs installed, the Makita track saw will hit the knobs at the very deepest plunge depth - you can only plunge to 45mm with these installed instead of the normal maximum of 50mm. For me, that lost 5mm of extra depth is worth the added convenience. Not to mention in the rare case I actually need that extra 5mm, it's easy to swap back to the original screws.

    I purchased these knobs to go with the TPG adapters to do away with needing to use a screwdriver to put the adapters on my guide rails. These knobs worked well and made applying the TPG to the rails quick.
