Festool 500312 CT Wings Third Hand

A helping hand when you need one.

Whether you’re a professional painter or taking on a DIY project at home, everybody needs a helping hand for support from time to time. With the Festool 500312 CT Wings Third Hand, you’ll always have assistance on hand when you need it.

How it works

Using the suction power from the CT Dust Extractor, the Festool 500312 CT Wings Third Hand provides additional support for mounting long items like molding, or holding a straight-edge or level in place for layout marks.

With 16 adjustable “wings,” this handy accessory adjusts and conforms to molding and other stock quickly while providing a grip surface to minimize movement. A bypass valve allows for fast and easy release and reset without going back to the extractor, so if you’re up a ladder or on a scaffold where the CT is not in reach, use the green slide to release the suction.

Ease of use

  • Acts as an extra hand to hold materials, straight edges and levels in place

  • Wings can be adjusted for various thicknesses up to two inches

  • Wings designed with a neoprene ring for better sealing and maximum suction force

  • Attaches to a standard dust extractor hose and supports up to 6.6 pounds

  • Often saves the need for a second person

  • Lightweight .77 pounds


  • Make sure surface is dust-free free for maximum adherence.

  • Clean bag on dust collector before using.
