PASADENA -- Lockdowel President and co-inventor of the company's snap-in fastening system, Bryan Koelling, will demonstrate and explain the latest hardware advances during the Cabinets & Closets Expo at the Pasadena Convention Center -- March 29 at 10:30 AM, room 204. His presentation is part of a Hardware Trends Panel featuring leading hardware exhibitors at the Expo.
1) tell how to gain more production capacity with improved manufacturing, assembly and installation processes;
2) demonstrate the NEWEST screw-less, glue-less products for simpler and better-built closets and cabinets -- including Lockdowel's Visionary Award Winning snap-in Drawer Slides;
3) build a complete cabinet -- onsite! -- with Lockdowel's EClips snap-together fasteners.
"With Labor costs rising around the world, demand for wood products continues to rise and American woodworking shops are close to full capacity -- and need a way to increase capacity without significant capital investment," Koelling explains. "Shipping of bulky, heavy wood products is expensive and increasingly challenging with the growth of high-rise living where furniture, cabinets and closets must be moved up multiple stories through narrow entryways. Fast, sturdy, on-site assembly is a must for today's cabinet makers."
Koelling looks forward to answering questions from the floor about glue-less, screw-less fastening for closets, furniture and cabinets. As a member of the 2017 Woodworking Network's 40 under 40, his inspiration for Lockdowel snap-in fastening came when he needed a surfboard fin to be assembled and dis-assembled for travel, coupled with his frustration over the bags of hardware required for assembly for RTA furniture. He knew there must be a better way - and he invented one!
Lockdowel will be exhibiting in Booth #603 at the Cabinets & Closets Conference & Expo. Click HERE for a complete list of exhibitors.
