LockDowel Corporation Showcases New Fastener Technology at IWF

Fremont, CA / myprgenie.com / ACCESSWIRE / Aug 18, 2014 / LockDowel Corporation, a leading innovator of hardware fasteners, today announced the company will be showcasing its new snap lock fastener technology in booth # 4456 at the IWF Show in Atlanta August 20-23, 2014.

LockDowel fasteners are available in metal and plastic. All LockDowel products provide tool less assembly while providing stronger joints, easy snap lock assembly, and the elimination of screws, glue, nails and cam locks. LockDowel fasteners have successfully reached pull strengths that range from 120 to more than 200 pounds and they eliminate the "clamping" manufacturing step. Lastly, installer, or end-user furniture assembly time and complexity in most all cases have been reduced by more than 80 percent. 

LockDowel hardware is pre-installed and gives installers the ability to quickly snap lock furniture with minimal need of instruction manuals and no requirement for tools. Once installed, LockDowel's new fasteners have no visible hardware, no missing parts and strong, sturdy joints that don't loosen over time.

About the Lock Dowel Company

LockDowel designs, patents and manufactures fastener technology that eliminates end-user furniture assembly complexity. LockDowel follows AWI dowel design construction standards.  Founded in 2005, LockDowel originally created the first "plug in" surfboard fin. In 2006, LockDowel filed additional patent applications for a variety of fastener solutions culminating in specific fastener technology targeting the furniture and case good Ready-To-Assemble (RTA) manufacturing industry. LockDowel products are designed to support the Cabinet Vision Ultimate Version 8 and Computer Numerically Controlled (CNC) manufacturing processes so prevalent in North America and Europe today. LockDowel uses standard 8mm & 5mm dowel size standards. Major furniture retailers have already made the move to LockDowel with the primary goal to maximize their customer's ease of assembly and product quality and minimize furniture returns to the retailer due to complex, failed assembly. LockDowel creates a whole new category of RTA furniture simplicity known as "LockDowel Ready."
