Chair assembled in one minute with Lockdowel system

FREMONT, CA –  Lockdowel Inc. said it has introduced a new approach to simple, fast chair assembly, the Lockdowel Slide-to-Lock Chair fastener system. The system incorporates standard Lockdowel EClips fasteners. No glue, tools, screws or cam locks are required to assemble the chair, and a chair designed using Lockdowel fasteners can be assembled in about one minute. The same chair utilizing conventional screws and bolts requires at least six minutes to assemble.

The new chair will be available to view at Lockdowel Booth 8073 at the International Woodworking Fair (IWF) 2018, August 22-24 in Atlanta.

“This is a breakthrough for our simple assembly fastening technology,” said Lockdowel CEO Fred Koelling. “Besides giving the industry a stronger, easy-to-assemble chair, it shows how Lockdowel fastening can be implemented into complex furniture designs.”

“Chairs can now be shipped flat-pack for simple, fast assembly on site. And the chairs never come apart with vibration or wear,” Koelling said.
The new Lockdowel Slide-to-Lock Chair and the company’s complete line of Simple Fastening Solutions will be available at the company’s booth #8073 during the International Woodworking Fair (IWF) August 22-24, 2018 in Atlanta.
