Starlock: A Summary of the NEW Bosch & Fein Multi-Tool System

June 2nd, 2016

Bosch Starlock Snap-In Multi-Tool Blades

Starlock: The new Fein & Bosch Multi-Tool System

You may have recently heard about the NEW Starlock mounting system for oscillating tools. This system has been developed by Bosch and FEIN, and is the new standard for multi-cutter accessories. Trying to understand the ins and outs of the new Starlock multi-tool system might seem a bit daunting, so we have summed up the main points you need to know.

What is the Starlock multi-tool system?Bosch Starlock Multi-Tool Blades Design

Starlock has been designed to offer an improved, standardised accessory-fitting system for oscillating tools. Starlock blades feature a new future-proof ‘cake-tin’ pattern, which gives a more secure, three dimensional connection to the tool for maximum performance, stability and precision. The Starlock accessory range consists of three different blade types: Starlock, Starlock Plus and Starlock Max.

What are the Key Features & Benefits of the Starlock system?

  • Snap-in function: simply click the blade in place for fast, tool-free accessory changes!
  • 3D connection: provides 100% power transfer from the tool to accessory for increased work efficiency
  • Backwards compatible: Starlock fits ALL oscillating tools for greater user flexibility
  • Colour coding: the blade’s connection point features a colour that corresponds to its intended application for easy user recognition
  • Laser etching: each accessory has its specifications laser etched on the blade surface for easy user distinction

Bosch Starlock Multi-Tool Blades Colour Coding


What is the difference between Starlock, Starlock Plus & Starlock Max?

Each accessory category has been designed to match the power output of its compatible oscillating tools. Starlock blades are suitable for use with any multi-cutter, whereas Starlock Plus and Starlock Max accessories require more power and are therefore limited to use with certain tools. Starlock Max is the most powerful blade classification.

Starlock Plus blades

Fit ALL FEIN multi-tools, ALL new Bosch Starlock multi-cutters and some old Bosch oscillating tools with OIS interface, including GOP 300, GOP 250, GOP 18 V and PMF 350 CES. Other brands require an adapter.

Starlock Max blades

Fit ALL new Bosch Starlock multi-tools and ALL new FEIN Starlock multi-cutters. Other brands require an adapter.

Note: old multi-tool blades are not compatible with new Starlock multi-cutters.

When does the Starlock multi-tool system launch?

The new system has already been launched! Bosch and FEIN recently released their new range of Starlock multi-tools and accessories. Visit our website to see our great selection of Starlock tools and accessories!


We hope that we have helped you understand the ins and outs of the new Starlock system a bit better. We think Starlock is a great innovation and it makes a lot of sense to introduce such a system that benefits everyone with easier working!

Paslode Service & Repair Testimonial – Pete Barehen, Saffron Walden, Essex

June 1st, 2016

“The service for collection and return was excellent. You phoned me when you received it and gave me a detailed quote for what was wrong. I was amazed at the speed you turned it round. The return delivery driver phoned when he was on his way to make sure we were around and the suggested day was not good, so we changed it and the Paslode arrived exactly when you said it would. I can’t fault your service and will definitely use you again.”
