The TPG Quick Adapter performs the same function as our Original TPG Adapter, with the added option of even faster setup and removal thanks to its included tool-less quick attachment feature.
Our TPG Quick Adapters represent an economical and reliable means to connect TPG System T-tracks to your Festool guide rail. Compatible with all TPG T-tracks (both right- and left-hand), the TPG Quick Adapter connects using the M6 Comfort Grip Star Knobs and CNC-Machined Centering Spacers included with each TPG-30 and TPG-30/50 Set. It will not interfere with track saw plunge cuts, and can be easily moved along the guide rail once properly configured. Once placed on your guide rail, the TPG Quick Adapter can be fine-tuned by adjusting the two "zero clearance adjustment" screws to eliminate unwanted play; this procedure only has to be performed during first use. When a more permanent attachment is desired, the TPG Quick Adapter can be secured to your guide rail with the included torpedo nut and top-mounted M5 flathead screws, just like the Original TPG Adapter. All adjustments can be made with a 3mm Ball Hex Driver (included in the TPG-30 and TPG-30/50 Sets).
The TPG System can utilize TPG Adapters and/or GRS-16 Guide Rail Squares for connecting T-tracks to guide rails. While the GRS-16 is more expensive, you may want to consider at least one GRS-16 in your TPG kit because it enables the patent-pending ability to square and parallel in a single cut, using just one T-track-whereas the TPG Adapter will only ensure your cuts are parallel.
Note: Previous versions of our TPG Adapter included Comfort Grip Knobs and Centering Spacers, along with a 3mm Ball-Hex Driver. These accessories are now included in the TPG-30 and TPG-30/50 Sets, and no longer included with each TPG Adapter. The Knob Set with Centering Spacers can still be purchased as a standalone accessory.
TPG Quick Adapter - Initial Setup For Quick Use
- Remove nutplate. Uninstall the nutplate by removing the two flathead screws at the top of the TPG Quick Adapter body, and set aside.
- Drop it in. Place the TPG Quick Adapter anywhere along the guide rail T-slot (in lieu of sliding it in).
- Adjust zero clearance screws. With the TPG Quick Adapter head dropped over the guide rail T-slot, use a 3mm Hex Driver (included in the TPG-30 and TPG-30/50 Sets) to turn the two "zero clearance adjustment" screws clockwise until they lightly touch the guide rail.
- Fine tuning. Carefully back off the adjustment screws just enough that you can lift and replace the TPG Quick Adapter, but not so much that you have play between the adapter and guide rail. You should not have to repeat this adjustment procedure for subsequent use on Festool guide rails of the same profile; the adjustment screws feature thread locking compound to prevent unintended movement over time under normal use.
