Only complaint is from a novice woodworking perspective. The spacing of the mounting screws is critical and not explained well on the information sheet downloaded.

Easy To Use
Align-a-lock is the simplest product I have ever used for such a project. Just follow the online directions and DO NOT RUSH! I made new leaves for my grandmothers oak table and thanks to these locks it is the best now than it was in 1912 when she bought it.

DARRIN S on Nov 18, 2018
I am seeking guidance on proper installation. I downloaded the spec sheet for the installation instructions, but made a mistake somewhere in the process. When I try to turn the latch to the lock position, the latch handle doesn't turn all the way. I mounted the base plate flush against the edge of one end of the table. Then I mounted the latch plate on the other piece so that the embossed line is at the opposite edge. Thoughts? I welcome some guidance.
BradW on Sep 5, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I sounds like the the plates were mounted a tad to far apart. Lossen all the screws by 1/4 turn or so. This will permit the plates to slide forward and see if the latch will lock. If it does, re-tighten the screws a little bit and keep trying the latch. You should be able to find a balance between the screws are tight enough & the latch will go to the lock position. Good luck
I need a locking device for a very old table with 4 leaves. The original device is missing parts that it hooks onto.
MaryEllen R on Feb 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Perfect for your job. Did basically the same on my drop leaf table only I was lining up two halves with the center leaf missing.
If I have a table with three leaves, but I may use 0 to 3 leaves when the table is set up, can I use these? Will I just have to be careful with the measurements and alignments so that any piece will align with any other piece?
Sandra T on Jan 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, you can use these if, as you say, you are very careful with alignment so that all the locks are positioned identically. I should mention though, that when I bought some, they were so poorly made that some wouldn't lock. I was much happier with several Rockler item 69047 combined with brass alignment bullets.
I have a table with one leaf that doesn't fit flush. Do I need to purchase two locks, one for each side of the leaf to attach to the table half?
Dolores T on Apr 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes one (1) for each side two be put 3-4' from edge
What is the overall height (projection) of this hardware? The folding leaf has only 3/4 inch of clearance with the bottom side of the table.
Skip T on Nov 7, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The highest point if the handle, and that is a little more than 5/8". It Is less than 3/4". But it will be tight.
I have a table that once the leaf is out it will not fit flush together. Will this work for this problem?
Kay T on Apr 11, 2017
BEST ANSWER: There's a chance that it could. It depends on why it doesn't sit flush together though. On my table, i have two of them connected each half and you can set the male piece further away from the female piece so that it pulls it in when you lock it and that would pull both sides of the table together.
Will this work on 1/2 or 3/4 plywood to pull snug 2 I/2s of a folding ping pong top that lays on top of a pool table ?
Larry S on Jan 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It was hard to line up and didn't pull the table leaves really tight. Was most likely due to operator installation. I can't really say if it would work. I don't know why it wouldn't. Measure closely.
Bought 2 wooden lazy susan's for a corner cabinet installation in my home kitchen. I am a wife, mommy, and homemaker....NOT a woodworker, so let's start with that to direct the technical level of the responses. :) I measured carefully, it will fit the space inside perfectly, with the 90° notch in the front for the folding cabinet door that folds back into that corner covering the cabinet opening. The lazy susan itself has a ball bearing turntable type mechanism on the bottom so it can be turned full-revolution when you pull out/open cabinet door (it's NOT one of those where the door is stationary and turns with the table/susan.) So, b/c I am NOT a builder or cabinet installer or woodworker, I did not realize -- these two lazy susans I bought were for installation WITH/AT THE SAME TIME AS cabinet installation. Well, the cabinets are there. Countertop is there. There is a stationary (non-removeable, non-adjustable) fixed shelf INSIDE this otherwise open corner cabinet (hence why I bought a lazy susan for top AND bottom.) I want to use them - but lo and behold, they WILL NOT FIT INTO THE OPENING, cannot get the entire susan on its prospective shelf, b/c the cabinet opening is too small, and since these were made to be "built in."
SOOO, I had the big idea - of making two parallel cuts through each susan, just around the metal round turning mechanism on the bottom.....then installing some sort of "hinge" underneath, so that now these 2 "leaves" could be folded UP one over the other, on top of the susan....then put into the cabinet, and unfolded - and somehow supported or locked as a table leaf, etc would be. This will serve to hold larger pots and bulky small kitchen appliances, so it needs to be sturdy.
So for my clueless questions:
1) What kind of saw needs to be used to cut the susans, as I assume it needs to be a fine cut so as to be flush when opened.
2) what kind if hinges would I put underneath to allow it to fold UP
3) what kind of supports or locks underneath?
J. H on Feb 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: 1. band saw with zero clearance insert to prevent tear out. There should only need to be one cut, to make the parts small enough to fit the opening. You could also consider removing a pie piece section from the shelf, and leave it out. You can then rotate the shelf into the opening, and no other work would be done.
2. hinges need to be on top, or the parts will fold down. any leaf hinge would work, sized for the parts. No supports underneath would be needed.
