Drop Leaf Table Support

Spring tension drop leaf table supports hold drop side table leaves in place and will not release when jarred. Finger pull release makes it easy to return the table side to the downward position. Use on antique tables, tea carts, microwave carts,antique typing tables or any furniture piece with a drop down side. Unfortunately weight specifications are not available as many factors affect strength of table leaf supports. Overall size of leaf, strength of table-apron, force exerted on table leaf when extended, strength of leaf and apron material, length of screws and distance between hinge and leaf edge all contribute to strength of table leaf support.

    Using Brass Wood Screws

    Care is required when installing brass screws. While these screws are the best match for most antique hardware however they are not as strong as steel screws. The screw is easily damaged if the hole is not properly prepared.

    The best practice is to first drill a pilot hole. Use a drill bit slightly smaller than the overall width of the screw, including threads, to drill the hole. Then use a steel screw, the same size as brass screw, to “cut threads” in pilot hole, by screwing steel screw into and then out of hole.
