Clear bit guard offers good visibility, yet keeps your fingers safely away from the spinning bit. Purchase as an add-on to an older table or as a replacement for a lost or broken bit guard. Mounts easily into a T-slot in the fence face. Includes two knurled knobs and a 5-pack of 1'' T-bolts. Use the extras for jigs and fixtures around your shop.

(1) Clear Bit Guard (59736)
(5) 1'' 5/16-18 T-Bolts (38791)
(2) 1'' Round Knobs (34121)

Just As Good As the Others
This clear guard is every bit as good (quality) as the same one in "blue", but costs less. Therefore, I would highly recommend it.

The barcode sticker gave me a hard time to pill it off.
The barcode sticker gave me a really hard time to pill it off. They should have just place it on the bag or something.

Doesn't fit.
Unfortunately this doesn't fit with my router table (an older craftman).

Just purchased a ryobi router table and the current guard interferes too much with processing the work. I removed it and wanted to replace it with this to protect my fingers.

Same as the one that came with my Bench Dog ProFence router table fence except this one is clear which I liked a lot more than the orange color one the Bench Dog came with. Was a drop in replacement and build quality was exactly the same.

I damaged my other one by raising the router bit to high on my router table. I am hoping it fits my trim router table.

What are the size specs. I can't seem to find them online. Thx
barry on Mar 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi Barry, I had ordered the clear router bit guard to replace the guard on my Rockler Trim router table order#43550 which had been damaged. I don't have the dimensions of the replacement guard but it is larger than the guard on the Rockler Trim Router table. I will have to modify the attachment holes to get it to fit the fence on my table. I am sorry that this isn't much help.
