Split-ring stop collars clamp around drill bits and hold securely in place. When tightened, they clamp over the complete diameter of the drill bit shaft without marring. The set includes collars for 1/8", 3/16", 1/4", 5/16", 3/8", 7/16" and 1/2" size bits. A 3mm (1/9") hex key for adjustments is also included with the set. Select the proper collar diameter, slide it onto the drill bit, and tighten the single 3mm hex screw. The split ring design tightens fully around the drill bit securing it in place. No damage to the drill's side edges or flutes will occur! Stop Collars allow you to set precise cutting depths on any countersink or drill bit with a corresponding diameter.

Can't believe I did not purchase a set years ago. Much better than tape. Easier on the drills than collars with set screws.

7-Piece Split Collar Set
An excellent buy. It much superior to my older set that had a set screw. it was less accurate and would fall out if you took the set screw out too far. This one grips the entire bit and holds fast to the bit.

Great tool set
These stop collars have allowed me to make multiple holes and have stopped the drill to the exact depth I need. My only complaint is that I wish Rockler would make many of their small sets of tools with small cases or pouches, to help keep them organized and in a safe place..

Drill bit stop set
I like these as they pinch the drill bit rather then rely on a set screw into the side of the bit.

You're going to need pliers, but they work.
I came to look at the reviews _after_ I bought them and got them home - brilliant, huh? - because I couldn't get it to actually grab. I'd tighten it as far as I could by hand, and it'd just slip right off.

But, I saw all the reviews saying you really had to crank them down, so I put the short arm of the hex wrench in place and turned it with some pliers. Eventually, it grabbed.

So, unless your hands are a -lot- stronger than mine, you'll need pliers, and it'll feel like you might break something, but once it grabs, it grabs.

Split Drill Bit Collar Set
Split collars are much better than the standard set screw collars because they don't damage the bit flutes as set screws do and can be easily adjusted to any depth. It is a great design.

Another good choice
Never owned a set before. Much more accurate than blue tape
and more convenient a block of wood slipped over the bit.

I'm always using tape to provide a stop for drilling holes, so these collars will be a big help.

Tape is great for setting depth, but you can't compare to the accuracy and reliability of a split collar!

A means is needed to get the correct depth when drilling holes for dowel pins with a hand drill. Tape was used on the drill bit, the bottom edge of the tape gets frayed when the tape is close to the drill guide.
