Bigger bit, bigger holes, bigger screws, and of course… bigger projects. Introducing the all-new Kreg Jig® HD – optimized for large heavy-duty projects - delivering the strength and confidence you need to BUILD BIG!
The Kreg Jig® HD is designed with the same tried-and-true hardened steel drill guides as the original Kreg Jig®... but the HD lets you drills holes which are 25% larger and joints that are an amazing 50% stronger than traditional Kreg Joints™!The HD gives you the same "Drill. Drive. Done!" simplicity you expect from a Kreg Jig®, plus the strength you never thought possible.
The Kreg Jig® HD is optimized for working with 2x4’s and larger stock. It utilizes #14 industrial-quality, heavy-duty, hardened-steel, screws which provide incredible shear resistance as well as 3 anti-corrosion layers for incredible long-term moisture resistance.
The Kreg Jig® HD works great as a stand-alone jig; simply connect it to your Kreg Face Clamp™, lock it into place, and take it where you need to go. Depending on the project, the Kreg Jig® HD can also connect directly to your model K3 or K4 Kreg Jig® benchtop base for upright drilling.
Whether you build projects outdoors a lot or just want your projects to be built with the strongest joints possible… this is the Kreg Jig® for you.

The Kreg Jig® HD draws most of it's strength from the significantly larger HD screws. Here's a quick size comparison between the new HD screws, and our standard SML- F125 screws.
Absolutely Awesome. Outdoor swing set, here I come.
OH I want this!!!
That just changed how I'm gonna do a few projects.

This would have been handy for a shelf project that I built a year or two ago. When can we expect to see this at Lowes or on Amazon so that I can put it on my shopping list? Also, is the Kreg tool box going to include HD screws. I've been wanting one of those, but couldn't come close to justifying it, since I had already bought most of the stuff it contained. Now, maybe I will have an excuse to get it.
I have used a regular Kreg jig and used plain deck scews for hd stuff.If Kreg hd screws are way more expensive than deck screws,I will continue to use them.
Sweet! Just in time for some deck work.
You're right. There is only one size (2 1/2" coarse). 30 screws for $4.49 or 125 screws for $19.99 on the Kreg order site ( http://www.kregtool.com/HD-Pocke-tHole-Screws-Prodview.html ). That makes them $0.15 each for the 30 pack or $0.16 each for the 125 pack (plus shipping?) -- (Does it make sense that a larger pack has a larger 'per each' price?). Ouch!
Hopefully we will be seeing them at Lowe's/Amazon shortly after this product is released.
I too would like to build an outdoor swing set for my grand-kids using the Kreg system. Has anyone seen any plans?
Will there be 1/2" plugs available for these holes?
This is great I love it.
