745 Backsplash Dowel Jig Kit 

Application
The 745 Backsplash Dowel Jig is needed to drill the dowel holes 3/8" off the backside of both the backsplashes and countertops.  The dowel also had a 5 degree angle to help push the top backsplash into the wall.   The two vacuum cups hold the hardened steel drill bushing in place for accurate drilling of the 5/16" holes.  

The dowels are screwed into the countertop and press forced into the top the backsplash. The steel ribs hold the backsplash in place until the silicone glue sets.

The 740 Backsplash Dowel provides a mechanical lock and when set into a bed of caulk they provide a mechanical lock and water resistant seal that stops the gaps that allow water in.   (per AWI Premium Grade installations)

    Cost & Benefit Estimates

    • A typical 10ft. sink unit with side splashes takes about 7 minutes to lock down, caulk and clean up. 
    • Machining in the shop with an end stop, on a shaper, is eliminated.
    • No second-trip required for caulking.
    • Allows less experienced installers to do professional quality work.
