Work great
Can’t beat these for cost. They are plastic and don’t look cool but they do work.

They fit a 3/4" hole.
They fit my DeWalt express folding workbench, Black+Decker Workmate 225 and my shop built work benches.

Good replacement part
Worked well as a replacement for some broken dogs on an old (& well used) Sears Workmate portable work bench. Fits the holes in the bench.

Woodworking Experience:
Work as expected
I replaced the worn out plywood boards on an old Black & Decker WorkMate with white oak 5/4 boards. I drilled the bench dog holes for standard size rather than the larger size for the bench dogs that came with B&D WM. The Rockler bench dogs fit and work very well with the new work surfaces.

Bench Dogs
Work like a charm. This is just a deliberate low profile snag. Does the job perfectly without getting in the way.

Woodworking Experience:
Great for my old workmate.
I didn't know Rockler had these so I made some out of oak. They worked well but deteriorated by being used outside. The Rockler replacements are inexpensive and work very well.

Something to get me started. I just finished making a bench and now have to place the dog holes, so I needed something so I could get going until I either buy more of these (which might be what I do) or end up making some.

How do bench dogs work?
A shopper on Sep 1, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I use the pictured bench dogs in a Stanley Workmate, with clamping work surfaces.
The bench dogs are inserted into holes in the Workmate surface. The work piece is placed between opposing bench dogs, bridging the opposing Workmate clamping surfaces. The Workmate surfaces are then tightened to hold the work piece in place, between the bench dogs.
What material are these dogs made from? Metal? Plastic???
Brian H on Oct 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: They are made from plastic.
How deep does the hole have to be?
Vinay K on Dec 23, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The length of the shaft on the bench dog is 1 1/2"
Will these fit my Sjoberg workbench?
tom h on Apr 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: if your holes are 3/4" they will work.
