Kreg Jig® K5 Pocket Hole System

Item #
96% of 100

The Kreg Jig®K5 incorporates the best features of every Kreg Jig®that came before, with upgrades you've never seen. That starts with a convenient front-mounted clamping mechanism that you can adjust without tools or adjusting nuts to match your workpiece thickness. Just slide the clamp into place, "click" the large clamp handle, and your jig is set to hold your workpiece tight every time. Plus, you'll get large support wings to hold your workpiece steady - and they have storage compartments inside. Add in a batch of other great features like a standard swiveling dust-collection port, spring-loaded stop for the Drill Guide Block, and, of course, the ability to remove the Guide Block for portable use, and you have, quite simply, the most advanced Kreg Jig® yet.


  • Front-mounted clamp handle makes clamping easy - no need to reach around the workpiece to close the clamp
  • Ratcheting clamp mechanism adjusts without tools
  • Quick-release pin holds drill block in place, and can't get lost
  • Storage wings provide built-in storage for bits, screws, accessories
  • Stop-collar setting block makes drill bit setup easy
  • Swiveling dust collection port accepts standard 1-1/4" vacuum hose
  • Adjustable workpiece stop mounts on either side for easy, repeatable drilling
  • Comes fully assembled - ready to set up and use

Big improvement over the original jig. Moving the clamping lever to to the front was a no brainer.

Love the k5 pocket hole jig. Have a k4 master kit but found it harder to use because of adjusting for different thickness of material. Love all Kreg products that I have.

Glad I upgraded!!
I have a Kreg K3 that gets the job done but wanted to step up the pace. When Kreg offered a rebate and Rockler a gift card, I bought the K5 system. It not only speeds up my productivity but also creates a cleaner work environment when I attach my shopvac. K5 is well worth the money!!

Love this tool
I love this tool. It has come in hand with many of my projects. I used the heavy-duty hole cutter and screws to build a workbench that collapses and hangs on my garage wall.

I also used sawhorse supports from Rocker for the cross supports.

A great step up from the Kreg R3
I started out with the Kreg R3 pocket hole jig and it has been a good tool for me, but its size limited what I could do. The K5 solves that problem and then some!! It supports larger pieces of wood and has the vacuum attachment which is a fantastic addition.

easiest joinery system for cabinetry. Simple, fast and if you want more durability, add a bead of glue. use it for all my cabinetry. combine this tool with sketchup, and you'll get very clever at hiding the pocket joinery.

James R on Sep 11, 2016
Best thing I have ever bought. Saves time and takes the work out of making joints for furniture. Makes a very strong joint. Should have bought one years ago.

I have the last model and I just wanted to step up to the K5 with the clamping lever on the front where it is much more convenient when drilling panels.

Thomas L Kirchmeyer J on Nov 27, 2015
I looked at the Porter Cable jig but figured PC would discontinue it since they have never spent a dime advertising it and it's not available in stores around here. Kreg is pricey but has decent quality. Rockler matched Amazons price but threw in a $25 gift card - Black Friday!
James B on Nov 27, 2015
I have a project that this item should help me complete much faster than the way I would be approaching it otherwise.
