Rockler, Auto-Lock T-Track Hold Down ClampMedina, MN – Rockler Woodworking and Hardware is expanding its T-Track System of work-holding innovations by introducing a hold-down clamp that automatically adjusts to the workpiece thickness to provide quick, consistent clamping.

The Auto-Lock T-Track Hold Down Clamp is an essential accessory for the Rockler T-Track Table (46654, sold separately), which features a grid of T-tracks across the table surface, or for any other application involving standard T-tracks. It sets up fast, sliding easily onto the track, and rotates 360° to deliver downward clamping pressure wherever needed. A locking wheel secures the base in the T-track.

The clamp foot has a non-marring pad and pivots to adapt to different clamping angles, and the clamp's auto-adjust feature eliminates the need for recalibrating when working with stock of different thicknesses. A push on the clamp handle delivers consistent pressure on workpieces up to 2-3/4" thick, and the force can be adjusted via an onboard set screw.

"Auto-Lock Hold Down Clamps are a key addition to the T-Track Table System," says Steve Krohmer, Vice President of Product Marketing at Rockler. "Having more options to secure workpieces and jigs gives do-it-yourselfers maximum freedom when they are using tools to further their projects."

By clamping from above, Auto-Lock Hold Down Clamps leave most of the piece open for sanding and other work. They also can be used to hold sacrificial pieces and to construct countless T-track jig setups. The clamps can also be used outside of T-track applications by affixing a mounting bracket (57940, sold separately) to the work surface and securing the clamp to the bracket.

Auto-Lock T-Track Hold Down Clamps (54280) are priced at $29.99 each and can be purchased at Rockler Woodworking and Hardware stores nationwide,, or from the Rockler catalog. For store locations or a free catalog, please visit or call 1-877-ROCKLER FREE.
