QUICK-SET is a simple and efficient 2-part Dowel. With its glue-less design, the threaded stud and plastic sleeve firmly lock into place. RTA cabinets and closet systems are put together on or off-site quickly and easily. QUICK-SET is processed the same as a conventional wooden dowel – but in a much shorter time, as gluing and clamping is not a factor. In addition to its main area of application as a modern cabinet connector, the QUICK-SET can also be used for drawer boxes, shelving, and bookcases.

Strong Design. The metal stud gives an advantage over the average wood dowel. Shear strength is extremely high, giving you the assurance that the metal stud would never break before the wood. The coarse threads add to the pull out strength, giving you between 132 – 187 lbs of pull out strength, depending on the material used.

High Pull Out Strength

  • 132 lbs for 3/4″ inch particleboard

  • 161 lbs for 3/4″ inch MDF (medium-density fiberboard)
  • 161 lbs for 5/8″ inch spruce plywood
  • 187 lbs for 5/8″ inch beech plywood

Installation is a breeze. Once the dowel holes are drilled and the metal stud is screwed in, the only tool you will need is a rubber mallet. The metal stud forces itself into the plastic sleeve. Once in reaches the end, the head of the stud snaps into the sleeve, locking it firmly into place.
