Ryobi ZCTP


Current Lead Time:


The lead time for a new Shark Guard order is probably around 4 weeks.
This is due to order volume. Lead time does fluctuate. It is an estimate. Splitter or riving knife orders would be in about a week. We do have a small supply of these in stock now, so it would take just a little time to finish them out. Brackets and accesories may take about the same time. There is no need to use Paypal to get on the waiting list for Shark Guards. Just send an email with the model and options you would like. That will secure you a spot on our waiting list. I will confirm this via email.
I prefer this method. We could settle up just before your order ships. Feel free to ask about the status of your order or the availability of your particular model or possible lead time at anytime via email.

What's New:



We will be adding a new product very soon. It will be dust shoes for CNC routers. Stay tuned for information about those in the coming weeks if you are interested. We still have R&D in the works for other upgrades and products and table saw models. If you want to get on the waiting list for a Shark Guard, just send an email with the details of the order you would like.

Thank you for your interest.

These are zero clearance throat plates for


Craftsman 21829, 22185, 22811, 27413...

Ryobi BT3000, BT3100, BT3100-1....

We are no longer offering these. I want to find better material and so far I have not found what I want. That may change in the future, but for now they are obsolete.


About the ZCTP Material.


This new red and white material is almost identical to "Sanatec" that we previously used. It just has two colors. Red white red. It is high density polyethylene or HDPE.
These plates use the 3 screw mounting method. This material is strong, is 1/2" thick, and is slightly textured. It provides a slick flush surface over the blade opening in the saw. These are milled to be ready to install on your saw using either the 10" blade or a smaller dado stack.
