Rockler Desk Top Fasteners, 8-Pack
SKU: 21650 ID: 479640393
Our figure-8 fasteners are an ideal way of attaching wooden tops to your desks and tables, while also allowing for seasonal expansion and contraction of the wood. These fasteners are made of heavy gauge steel, nearly an 1/8´´ thick. Thanks to their flat bearing surfaces and circular ends, the figure-eight clips can easily pivot in their recesses when the top moves, which helps to prevent splitting. To allow for more wood movement on larger tops, they are best used in end aprons only. Each desktop fastener is countersunk for screw heads in opposing directions. Installation is easy—simply use a Forstner bit or router to create a small recess for each fastener. 12´´ spacing is recommended.
