*** NEW DESIGN - LIMITED RUN ***

A precision-made, minimalist magnetic slider...

The World's Most Popular Slider
Just Got An Upgrade...

I must confess to you...

This design was never meant to happen.

I shared a photo of a half-finished, original Toad™ slider on Facebook post (just as a sort of "placeholder" image because I was talking about something  else in that post).

But then, I received message after message ...and email after email ...from people wanting (no, DEMANDING) I make this new "Toad X". The name came about because the design looked like it had an "X" shape on top.

The problem:

I could not sell the half-finished Toad™ slider I posted because, well, it was half-finished (very crude, rough machining, etc.).

So, understanding that people liked both the stepped lines and the "X" shape on the design ...I went back and designed this ToadX™ from scratch.

The result is something that's NEW ...but also still has the original Toad™ look (which isn't a bad thing because the original Toad™ is the world's most popular slider).

Teflon® (PTFE Sliding Plates)

Just like the old saying goes...


Teflon® (also known as PTFE) may be the greatest thing in slider plates since sliced bread!


9 Months ago I designed and made my first slider with brass insert plates (this had never been done before ...a true world first). I then "dimpled" the design to improve the sliding experience.

After many months of trialing different materials (including bronze, stainless steel, copper, Vesconite plastic, bronze-filled plastic, etc. etc.). Zirconium was the hands-down winner ...and it's what I've been installing in sliders ever since.

However, recent trialing of Teflon® as slider plates has resulted in me questioning using Zirconium.

Don't get me wrong, Zirconium is still #1 (until Teflon® proves itself over time) ...but it's giving Zirconium and damn hard run for it's money!

Screw-In Plates

After epoxy-fitting the slider plates for more than 8 months... I decided it was time to screw them in.

I will openly admit to you right now that I don't think it looks as good with the screws. It's true.

But the sheer number of benefits to screw-in plates vastly outweigh the downside of aesthetics.

We use two custom-made, 2-56 Thread Grade 5 Titanium machine screws to attached each plate. We do not use any sort of epoxy or thread-locker for the screws because (from experience) the "binding" of the titanium threads ensure they do not come loose themselves.

These screws use a standard "T8" Torx head.

Optional Zirconium Plates

Of course, you can choose to have Zirconium plates installed in your ToadX™ slider. These are tried and tested.

At the bottom of this page you can choose which plates you want your ToadX™ slider to come with.

'Hidden' Magnets (No Visible Magnets)

If you know me already, then you know I'm all about clean and minimalist designs.


I've taken the time to ensure there are no magnets visible.


There are SIX magnets behind each of the two plates (so a total of 12 x magnets). The hidden Neodymium magnets are 6mm x 3mm.
