- Super strong attachment system: Threaded Inserts are a rugged and versatile way to securely attach furniture feet and legs.
- Hidden from view: Can’t be seen—your legs install flush with the bottom of your furniture
- Great for knock down pieces: Unscrew your legs or feet for easy transport
- Highly versatile: Perfect for small furniture too narrow for other attachments while equally suitable for large, heavy tables
We recommend this option when superior strength is critical: beds, case pieces, sofas and tables. This is a great choice for knock-down pieces or designs where you want the attachment hardware to be invisible—all you see is the clean lines of your furniture.
Installing threaded inserts requires a little woodworking skill.
- A Threaded Insert Drive Bit
- Threaded inserts
- A power drill (impact driver works best)
- An 11/16" drill bit (Forstner bit recommended)
- With the 11/16" drill bit, bore accurately positioned pilot holes in the underside of your furniture—no less than 13/16” deep, being careful not to drill all the way through.
- Chamfer the edges of the pilot hole to prevent tear out.
- Using the Threaded Insert Drive Bit, install the Threaded Insert into the hole.
Now you’re ready to spin your foot or leg snugly into place. When installing square or asymmetrical legs, you may have to adjust by using the Threaded Insert Drive Bit to gently rotate the insert so the leg lines up squarely with the sides of your furniture.
Please note: If you’d like your legs to come with the compatible Threaded Insert Bolts preinstalled, simply add a Cleat/Mounting Bolt Installation service for each part you order.
