Kreg 520PRO Pocket Hole Jig with VersaGrip Clamp

Take the Kreg 520Pro Pocket Hole Jig Anywhere

We recently covered the Kreg 720 and 720Pro Pocket Hole Jigs, part of the company’s newest line of woodworking solutions. Fleshing out the rest of the line, the Kreg 520Pro Pocket Hole Jig (KPHJ520PRO) offers a versatile and adaptable approach to pocket hole joinery.

What’s the Big Deal?

We really like the versatility and portability of the Kreg 520Pro. Like the 720 and 720Pro models, it lines you up to create really clean pocket hole joinery. However, it employs a unique design that adapts and adjusts to however you need it to.

Kreg 520Pro Pocket Hole Jig

The Kreg 520Pro Pocket Hole Jig features an intuitive VersaGrip clamping system. The pistol grip rotates 360º to accommodate any building project. A squeeze of the handle secures your 1/2″ to 1-1/2″ material in the clamp while the GripMaxx anti-slip material keeps it from shifting.

We like how easy it looks to use. This system should appeal to hobbyists looking for a quick way to make pocket holes in a variety of materials and applications. We like the available depth of the system as well as the clearly marked measurements.
