For woodworkers looking for an affordable mid-sized router lift with solid performance and features, the Rockler Snap-Lock Router Lift rises to the top. It satisfies the basic requirements of a good router lift: a flat, low-friction plate and smooth lifting action for comfortable, aboveboard bit height adjustments. Add to that our much-loved Snap-Lock insert ring system, which lets you change rings with the push of a button. This means you can quickly raise the router to its highest point for easy, above-table bit changes, without having to search for tools or remove screws to get the insert ring out.


  • Adjust bit height and change bits easily and comfortably from above the router table
  • Rigid 3/8'' thick phenolic plate for flatness and low-friction sliding
  • Award-winning Snap-Lock technology: just push the button to release the insert ring for fast bit changes—no tools to search for; no screws to lose
  • Fits popular mid-sized routers like the DeWalt 616, Bosch 1617 and Porter-Cable 690 and 890 series
  • Includes one insert ring with a 1-1/2'' opening; additional Snap-Lock inserts available separately (e.g. #55415)
  • 8-1/4'' x 11-3/4'' plate dimension fits Rockler and Bench Dog router tables
  • Lift housing accepts a wide range of medium-sized routers (see below)
  • Includes starter pin for routing without fence using bearing-guided bits
