Woodworking Experience:
Appropriate uses
These types of knobs/nuts work best when the threaded stud/rod is held perpendicular to the surface against which the knob/nut is tightened. Otherwise, a tilted surface can cause the knob to tilt, and quick-release on its own, or fail to engage altogether. In the right applications, these work absolutely wonderfully.

I needed a quick release knob that allowed immediate access. This was perfect in function and size.

We bought a few of these to test on some of our air filter access doors. We needed some knobs that would not rust and could be decontaminated with wet solutions. They save a lot of time on long studs. We have many air filters to change. We ordered 232 of them. Thanks!

These quick-release knobs are welcome advance. I replaced all of the old star knobs (8) in my panel clamping press (to be featured in an upcoming issue of WoodWorker's Journal magazine) with your quick-release version -- what a difference! Greatly speeds the operation. Thank you.

Works very well
Works great. Only drawback, which can't be avoided, is your bolt needs about ½" extra length to engage both ends of the threads.

I used the quick-release knobs to replace the regular threaded knobs on my router table fence - really speeds up the process of positioning the fence. Good product!

Instructions would help
It took a long time to figure out the trick to make these work. I know the concept, but a mark on the top showing how to angle the knob would help a lot of wasted time.

Good idea. Bad result.
I have a hard time getting it to grip. Can’t recommend it.

I chose these knobs for my new project work stand. The projects I'll be working on are different sizes and the clamp system will work better with theses quick release knobs.

I am building a table saw slide with adjustable fences to cut segments for making of segmented bowls and vessels. I think these will make fence adjustment quick and easy
Monty R. H on Mar 14, 2016
Bought 1 of each just to check them out. Then a shop clamping project came up where the 5/16 will work perfectly.
Steven C on Feb 4, 2016
Bought the Rockler Fence Feather Board, comes with 5/8" T bolts. I have a Bosch 4100-09 table saw. The side T track on its rip fence is 1/4", thus I needed to buy 2 sets of 1/4" T bolts and knobs. Interestingly the T track on the top of the rip fence is 5/8"...go figger.

I've always kept an eye on these knobs, and now that they're on sale, thought I would give them a try for securing my drill press table.

What is the "quick release" aspect of this knob? Is there an inner sleeve? Or just a Knob? Thanks
chris r on Oct 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The threaded insert is not entirely round. It allows for the knob to be tilted to the side to disengage the threads. As the face of the knob needs to be perpendicular to the bolt to engage the threads, these knobs require the item being secured to be perpendicular to the bolt.
What are the knobs made from?
kyle m on Nov 12, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hard plastic. They are a good size, comfortable to use. The quick-release feature works pretty well, but I would be careful to use them only where an inadvertent release would not cause a safety hazard, or to secure something really heavy. Also, if the bolt you are screwing the knob onto is really wiggly, and you can't easily steady it, the knob can be difficult to attach, because you have to be able to hold the knob exactly square to the bolt, or it won't catch. In other words, you need two hands: one to steady the bolt, and one to screw on the knob (if the bolt were permanently fixed rigidly in place, you could attach the knob with one hand easily).I use mine to secure my Porter Cable dovetail jig to my workbench. They are perfect for this: it takes only seconds to secure the jig, and seconds to remove it.
What is the largest diameter of the knob?
A shopper on Apr 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: 1.125 inch radius from center of threaded hole to tip of finger lobe. If there were a lobe directly across the center point from each lobe, the diameter would be 2.25 inches.
