The TUCK spring steel compression dowel is immediately load-bearing for attaching components without glue or clamps. TUCK is available in five sizes and processed like a conventional wooden dowel. The TUCK is self-tightening and no clamping aid is required when assembling the workpiece (cabinet, furniture, interior design, etc.). The spring steel design guarantees a permanent tightening.
TUCK – Spring Steel Compression Dowel
$78.50 – $173.00
- Drill borehole according to the TUCK dowel size
- Insert the dowel into the surface (not into the edge) of the workpieces
- Brush the edges with glue (optional) and attach workpiece with a rubber mallet
*Note – Assemble components with a rubber mallet on the surface, but not necessarily from above against a hard surface; it is better to hit the surface from below and use the self-suspension of the material – this way the parts connect very fast. In the case of very large workpieces, a clamping aid might be needed. If glue is used it is not necessary to wait for the complete hardening of the glue. Once the desired end position has been reached, the clamping aid can be removed immediately.
