GRS-16PE Parallel Edge Guide Rail Square NEXGEN

Introducing the Newest GRS-16 PE
Precision guide rail square for FESTOOL®, MAKITA® & TRITON® track saw guide rails

Introducing the newest version of the best-selling guide rail square on the market: the GRS-16 PE. Like its sibling GRS-16, the GRS-16 PE is designed to make it much faster to achieve dead square cuts with your FESTOOL, MAKITA or TRITON track saw—but adds a second "parallel edge" to permit squaring against the front and back of your workpiece. The Original Guide Rail Square, Refined

Thanks to feedback from the TSO user community, the GRS-16 PE embodies a number of requested features and refinements:

  • Lighter than its predecessor despite being CNC machined from 25% thicker aluminum, with a mating vertical edge that now perfectly matches the height of your guide rail extrusion for maximum support and engagement
  • Now fits in a Systainer—see our new Dual FoamPac Systainer Insert
  • Latch hook now features a resilient coating to grasp and protect the edge of your guide rail
  • Reshaped T feature lead-in makes it even easier to install onto your guide rail
  • Additional accessory mounting provisions included—see our new Angle Accessory and stay tuned for more exciting new products building off the GRS-16 platform
  • Adjustments to key tolerances to better accommodate production variances observed in guide rail manufacturing
  • Fasteners used on all TSO brand tools are now metric for worldwide availability
  • New, fully recyclable all-corrugated white packaging

Simple, Automatic Accuracy

Before the GRS-16 family, accessories for squaring up your track saw guide rail relied on the loose-tolerance T-slot found on just about every guide rail. To overcome this inherent inaccuracy, you had to rely on a separate reference square, plus a combination of loose parts like T-bars, hex bolts, knobs or wingnuts. No longer! The patent-pending GRS-16 PE is completely self-contained and self-aligning, thanks to an innovative, high strength integral draw latch mechanism. Simply slide the GRS-16 PE onto your guide rail, lock the draw latch, and you're done. Five seconds to square.

Accurate cuts with your track saw often require using a screw clamp or quick clamp. For this reason, we've designed notches in both reference edges of the GRS-16 PE to accommodate popular clamps like the Festool Screw Clamp or Quick Clamp. Built for a Lifetime of Service (or Longer)

The GRS-16 PE is precision CNC machined from a single piece of 5/8" (15 mm) thick 6061-T6 aluminum and then anodized for a non-marring, high durability finish. The high-strength draw latch is built from stainless steel—to resist rust and pitting over time—and features a resilient, grippy, non-marring coating on the latch hook. Despite its high clamping strength, a comfort coating on the latch handle makes it easy to generate the leverage necessary to engage, release or reposition the square along your length of track. The GRS-16 is made in the United States, and comes with our lifetime warranty.
