DrillSteady is a compact, portable drill jig that swings open to clamp on to your tubing. All you do is drill.

DrillSteady is easy to use, so it’s great for DIY and professionals who want to build a bimini top, boat dodger, add grab rails and more. It fits in your palm (or in your pocket), so it’s always close at hand.

Sound too good to be true?

With the DrillSteady drill guide:

  • You can drill a bent frame corner, stanchion or other tubing in place. There is no need to disassemble or remove tubing from your boat. This will save you time and money on cutting and welding (or repairing drilling mistakes)
  • A 9/64″ (3.5mm) drill bit is held in place securely (use #8 screws)
  • Large, knurled thumbscrews mean an easy grip and tight fit on tubing with diameter 3/4″ – 1 1/4″ (19.05mm – 31.75mm)
  • The durable cast bronze or zinc* drill guide body will not mar your shining stainless steel
  • The sturdy, tool steel drill bushing will last a lifetime

Invented and made right here in Maine.

can I use a 1/4″ dia bit?


Response from Gemini Marine Products

Thank you so much for the review. To answer your question, the DrillSteady is designed to take a 9/64 drill bit. If you need something larger, we recommend you use this as your guide hole. All the best and good luck!
