A reader recently inquired about the method I use to secure the crosscut fence to my sliding table saw. Grizzly provides a knob with a long male thread to pass through the slot in the outrigger and into the bottom of the crosscut fence. This is secure, but slow to remove when taking off the crosscut fence.
For a more convenient solution, I mounted a toggle clamp on a riser block. A large-head, 1/4″ bolt, threaded into the bottom of the block, rides in the bottom T-slot of the crosscut fence and a rubber bumper positions the pressure pad of the clamp solidly on the outrigger.
This is what the clamp looks like holding the crosscut fence in place.
While not quite as secure as the original bolt, this solution makes it considerably easier to adjust, remove or install the crosscut fence.
Here are some more photos of the clamp on its own.

That is a clever solution.
