Frequently Asked Questions
Will this fit my router?

The router hood includes a universal base plate that features multiple screw-hole patterns to fit nearly any portable router available on the market today. We provide a convenient, printable template (see Installation Instructions) that can be used...

Looks like a great product but have you checked to see if this will fit Triton routers?

Due to the many different routers that are out there, we can't test it on all of them! Trition Routers are not on our list of routers we've tested for compatibility. You can try it out, and if it fits send us in a photo of your router with the type of...

On the box I t said: "Visit routerhood.com for a detailed list of matching screw-hole patterns." where is this?

You can find a printable template in the Documents section of the Router Hood's product page. After printing this off you can match the template to the screw holes on the bottom of your portable router to see if it matches.

You can also find a list of tested and proven routers in the same FAQ where you asked this question. Look for the "Will this fit my router?" question

Can I use this with my router table?

No. This product is designed specifically for use with portable fixed-base and plunge style routers. Router tables require a different mechanism for dust collection.

Is this product compatible with guide bushings

No. In our effort to make the router hood as universal as possible, inexpensive, easy to use, and effectively collect dust, we were unable to incorporate the use of guide bushings.

Can this be used in non-edge routing i.e. through holes?

Yes. For inside edge routing the lower chip cover can be easily detached (no tools necessary) allowing the bit to sink in completely while waste is removed from above the bit.

Can I use this when cutting something other than wood?

Yes. We've successfully tested our router hood with softwoods, hardwoods, plywoods, and fiberboards such as MDF. Materials such as acrylics and other plastic also work very well with our Router Hood.

What makes the Universal Router Hood different from similar products?

Very few router manufacturers offer dust extraction for their products, and those that do exist are often expensive and specific to a single make/model. Additionally, competitive router hoods typically only collect debris from above the edge and can easily clog as they are very narrow in design.

Our Router Hood is compatible with almost any make/model portable router. Its unique design fully encloses the bit above and below the edge to capture up to 99% of dust and debris. Both the chip covers and the hose connect can rotate independently so that you can work freely.

What size hose should I use?

This product includes a 1.5" hose connection (1.25" I.D.) that will fit most standard wet/dry vacuum hoses. We also offer a 6-1/2 ft hose whip (with swiveling cuff) to connect to larger 2.5" diameter hoses.

What comes in the box when I buy it?

Contents include the Universal Base Plate (side A & B combine), the Dust Dome (which encloses the bit), the Hose Connect Nozzle (w/ quick release lock), the Deep Chip Cover (for larger router bits), and the Shallow Chip Cover (for minimal space beneath...

Is the router hood available in any other colors?

No, not at this time. The Router hood is molded from high clarity, industrial plastics to maximize visibility both above and below the router bit.
