Dog Rail Clips
A simpler, easier to use, and more affordable method to mount your guide rail
Ingeniously simple and effective, these Dog Rail Clips from UJK Technology® work by sliding into the top-facing extrusion in your Festool guide rail and encircling 20mm bench dogs to form a secure, square attachment to your Festool MFT/3 or similar 20mm perforated worktop. Featuring a clip that is under moderate tension, these Dog Rail Clips can be easily inserted onto dogs at a slight angle and, once the guide rail has been placed flat on top of your workpiece, form a strong connection with your dogs to ensure accurate, repeatable cuts.
Dog Rail Clips can be used with a wide variety of 20mm bench dogs, but they work best with our DoubleGroove™ Tall Dogs thanks to a slight, "easy-on taper" we've engineered into the top of our dogs. That feature makes it easier to initially engage the clips around the dog as you're placing the guide rail on your workpiece.

These clips keep the rail against the dogs without fail. It gives you one less thing to worry about and really expands the functionality of the MFT. Foolproof right angles every time.
Very helpful response to my inquiries and fast delivery.
The dog rail clips work wonderfully. They really do keep the rail tight and secure against the dogs. However, when I received the clips, one of them was very loose in the rail track and the other was so tight in the rail track that I could barely move it. The closer fitting piece took me about 5-10 min to get into the rail in the first place.
I'm wondering if one is too big or one is too small... it seems to me that having excess play in the track allows for movement, which could throw off square when making cuts.
These clips are awesome and make it much easier to keep your track against the tall dogs.
A good addition to help keep rail and tracksaw synched
When making cuts using a tracksaw, one of the most important considerations is holding the edge of your track firmly against your bench dogs so that you will get absolutely square ends when cutting. Even the smallest amount of drift is unacceptable. This is where these little beauties come into play. They wrap around elevated bench dogs and hold your track rigidly against the dogs so that no gap (hence no error) will be induced. As an added bonus, the spring clips are rigid enough to actually hold your track up against the top of the elevated dogs so that you can slide your cut material beneath the track. Then, you just push down on the track and the clip slide down with it holding the track firmly against the material to be cut.
These will help with all my track saw cuts by holding the track against the Parf Dogs. These are a little pricey, the shipping was quick, would do business again.
I use these with Parf dogs on my MFT to keep the rail snugged up. One thing: slip these into the rail, then drop the rail over the dogs. the clips do not have enough spring action to snap over the dogs.
