Fold & Lock Legs, the latest product innovation from LDL Components Ltd, will ensure that your cabinet legs will never let you down again.
Although they may seem to be a fairly insignificant component, cabinet legs cause much frustration among furniture manufacturers and fitters by their ability to create problems.

The new Fold & Lock leg has been designed specifically to address all the installation headaches and stability problems that these minor parts can cause.
Quick and easy to install with a locking device that ensures the leg stays firmly in place during manoeuvring, the legs are exceptionally strong and can be adjusted from 100mm through to 170mm when in position. Once in place, the leg is firmly supported by side panels.

Screw or dowel options are available . Finally to complete the job, there is a choice of
pressure fit or self adhesive plinth clips.
To demonstrate the robust construction and clever design of the Fold & Lock leg, LDL is offering free samples on request.
