Hafele America’s patented ixconnect spreading connector SC 8/25 is a one-piece connector that requires no glue, dowels, nor tools to install. The connectors are pushed into an 8mm hole before the panel components are pushed together by hand. Both bolt components of the connector will synchronously expand in the drill hole. Used for cabinets, small furniture items, and drawers, the connectors feature a fixed concealed connection. Made for a minimum thickness of 15mm, the ixconnect connectors are made from plastic and can be used in MDF and chipboard panels in combination with wooden dowels.
