Using the Fein Starlock System

What is the Starlock system?

Starlock is an innovative new fitting system for attaching accessories to Fein, Bosch and other selected OMTs (oscillating multitools). It provides greater efficiency, better precision, maximum stability, and reduced vibration—all of which are intended to maximize your investment by extending the life of the blades and tools. Not to mention reduce the wear and tear on your hands.

How does Starlock work?

The three dimensional Starlock design makes blade changes possible in seconds—no tools required. Simply push the OMT down onto the Starlock blade or accessory and it snaps into place quickly and securely.

This innovative, 3D design establishes maximum contact between the Starlock accessory and the OMT motor so 100% of the power is transmitted, with greater security and efficiency, and less vibration.

Which blade or accessory is suitable for my application?

Starlock blades use an industry-standard color coding system so it's easy to determine quickly which blade you need.

Are Starlock blades compatible with my OMT?

There are three Starlock classifications: Starlock, Starlock Plus, and Starlock Max. Each is designed so its accessories take advantage of the OMT's output—ensuring the greatest precision and heaviest loading.

While the standard Starlock accessories are compatible with the traditional Fein MultiMaster and many other existing OMTs, the Starlock Plus and Starlock Max have multitools made specifically for their use, and are not backward compatible.

This means that the Starlock Plus OMT can be used with Starlock and Starlock Plus accessories, but not Starlock Max accessories. The Starlock Max multitool can be used with Starlock, Starlock Plus, and Starlock Max blades and accessories.
