Extending table clip/fastener thingy..

Want to remove this ad? Please sign in or register for free today.

We have a broken clip under our table. It`s one of those lever clip things which releases a metal `loop` that secures on to a hook thing on other side of extension and then you clip the lever thing back to hold the two sides securely together. Ok, not the greatest description ! ; same sort of fastener that you see on cabin trunks. It must have an official name but I have renamed it many times whenever I attempt to move our wretched table and my chosen names must be more colourful .

Trying to find a replacement could be likened to searching for Fly Fishing by J.R. Hartley. And Google is never your friend when your fingers dont know what it`s called to enter a search.

Does anyone know either what it`s called (apart from `stupid ***y thing`) or where on earth I could find a new one ?
Thanks.

Re: Extending table clip/fastener thingy..

I have a box full of these particular items, an bein the kind of person who always keeps stuff on the premise It'll come in handy one day, you never know when you might need it, I have put them in my garage in a little plastic box an put them with loads of other things that may also come in handy one day.

Unfortunately, I can't find them due to the fact that I have loads of identical little plastic boxes containing various things that will also come in handy one day....

I don't know what they are called either.

Hope this helps....

Re: Extending table clip/fastener thingy..

Many thanks Bryan - That is exactly what it looks like (except mine missing that wire loop thing)

Rexmaniac, again many thanks, either of those will do as replacement for our broken one & they are UK based. But I shall try Fletchers first.

Matty. Do you really want me scrabbing about beneath our wretched table with a camera ? Or is this payback for my suggestions of things to occupy your empty hours?

Goodshaw Boy - .

Seriously, many thanks to all you all for your time & trouble .

Re: Extending table clip/fastener thingy..

Well, if your going to Fletchers it may be best to take a photo with your phone so you can say "I want one of them" lol

Or even a photo of the image on the pc if you don't want to go akimbo under the table.

B&Q dont have them.

Screwfix in Accy do though.

Matty you are a star. Thank you.
They are just the job. May actually replace the other one too because it tends to rattle when the table is in use (though that is generally an indication that the meal being eaten includes meat which is a bit tough !)
Reading the comments below the item details made me laugh. Happy chappie will then have 8 surplus to ponder the use of .. They will `come in`. I forsee storage in plastic box in the deepest darkest recesses of garage or shed; never to see the light of day again but to be searched for endlessly when a suitable role has been identified for one of them. Infact, given they dont rust, he could use all remaining 8 to secure his shed door - it`s cram packed with all other items that will `come in`.
Thanks again Matty.
