  Loc blocks for gripping from trend uk  

Loc blocks

Loc blocks from Trend come in sets of four. They are interlocking gripping blocks that are designed to replace clamps by holding a workpiece in place when it's being sanded, drilled, or finished. They can be used singularly or as a large block when interlocked. The blocks grip both the bench and the workpieces with non-slip, anti-vibration, non-marring pads.

They can be used when routing as long as extra care is taken to prevent the material from tilting.
