Questions & Answers


I'm looking to make a short stool using FG pine and 6" legs -- would this plate be overkill for m...

Asked by Michelle December 14, 2020

It’s difficult to answer your question, not knowing the surface area of the stool and it’s intended use. We used ours to hold tapered legs on our bedside stands. They’re 15x20” and weight about 10lbs. The plates are very sturdy and easy to attach. Hope this was helpful and good luck with your project!

Asked by Gene October 4, 2020

4" x 4" x 5-1/2"

Do I need to use both things they said to use or can I just use this? Is there a difference??

Asked by KMV September 20, 2020

Yes I put new legs on a work table with these in under an hour. Quick and easy.

Can these be used for chair legs, or is there a smaller one?

Asked by Marcy June 27, 2020

In my opinion, this model is better for chair legs. The smaller ones are for table legs. I used mine for new chest legs.

What size bolt screws into the plate? 5/16"?

Asked by JDBsocal April 12, 2020

It's been so long since I attached these, I had to take one out to see the size. It's a 5/8". You're welcome. Glad to help!

can these be used to mount a 29 inch 4x4 leg to a farmhouse table

Asked by willy March 5, 2019

as long s you intend to put the plate on the table and the screw into the leg. otherwise it will be too big for the table leg you are describing. if this is your plan i wouldn't foresee any problems. we are using 4 of these on our couch which regularly has 3 or 4 people on it without any issues.

Are these strong enough for a smaller kitchen table (sit up to 4 people) and is it ok the unscrew...

Asked by Bex January 31, 2019

We used these to attach wood legs to the bottom of our couch. It has been loaded up with 4 adults during the holidays and I haven't seen any issues. I am sure that is more stress than your table will see.

can this be used with screw-in wheels for a hassack?

Asked by mimi September 11, 2018

I would think so. The top plate will attach to anything via screw. You may have issues matching the thread on the top plate with the bolt of your wheels.

For use of this product, can I drill directly into MDF or particle board? I am trying to upcycle ...

Asked by Simran August 22, 2017

We attached this to an ikea couch with a particle board frame without any issue. Take your time, and predrill if you are close to an edge.

Will Home Depot cut a sheet of melamine in half

Asked by Bob August 16, 2017

I have found this question varies from store to store. The home depot closest to me claims that the company that owns their saw doesn't permit them to cut melamine on it - they even have a sign posted saying that. A few miles north of here at another store they never give me an issue, i would call ahead and ask before you make the trip

Used these to attach legs to a small shelf I was building. Super easy to use, installed all 4 within just a few minutes. I loved that they're low profile so. It visible from the front as well.

IF I could give them ZERO stars I would
All 4 of the installed plates broke within minutes of screwing the legs into them. Heavy Duty WHERE? I didn't even get the desk upright before the square bits with the threaded holes popped out of the rest of the bracket.

Durable, Easy to Install!
I bought these to go on a big desk I'm building out of Ash (it will be heavy) and wanted something extra durable to hold some 6"-tall bun feet on. I haven't installed these hangers yet but they are made out of very thick metal and have a total of 5 screws to attach. The actual threaded area is only about 1/4" deep.. I wish it was a bit deeper to grab more onto the threads of the feet but I'm sure it will be fine! While the desk is in the shop being built I am going to install caster wheels on these hangers for ease of moving back/forth to storage and assembly area, then when I'm at the final stage I'll swap out wheels for the feet! 1 out of 4 of the hangers needed to be exchanged. The actual bolt part of the hanger was welded crooked onto the bracket part so there was a 1/4" gap on one side (see picture) after I installed the feet. Not a big deal since Home Depot is great with returns.
