The world-first X-LOCK changing system for Bosch grinders means it's never been quicker, easier or safer to change angle grinder accessories.


X-LOCK is a new 2-piece changing system which uses an X-shaped interface between the grinder's head and the accessory. No tools required - so no tools to lose. When the accessory is attached, an audible click provides peace of mind that it's correctly mounted and firmly fixed.

The whole changing process is up to 5 times faster than conventional solutions. And with the accessory clicked into place, X-LOCK still has more benefits. Because there's no clamping nut for fitting the accessory, there's no clamping nut to get in the way and potentially scratch surfaces.

The result is flatter grinding, with a better finish.

With a choice of over 130 accessories for cutting, grinding and brushing - almost all backwardly compatible - Bosch X-LOCK has it covered from A-Z. Y choose anything else?
