Impressive weight - well designed & made easy install
These brass table keepers exceeded my expectations. They are impressively solid, easy to install- the help keep our table useful.
I bought them the help stabilize the leaf joints of my 130 year old oak table. They did a great job. I highly recommend them to anyone who wants to keep leaves together. Nice thing is they hold firm pull in and out just snug enough for security without being difficult and kids will not fiddle with it under the table.

Great Online Store!
The item I purchased can be very hard to find and is some what obscure. Rockler's website had classified their items so that they are relatively easy to find.

Woodworking Experience:
very high quality and sturdy. Same design as tables original but a bit larger. Be sure to mount them as pair as they will not line up correctly otherwise and you end up with more and more screw holes in your table and leafs. ( or is that leaves?)

Excellent product!
Simple to install and very sturdy. Would highly recommend this product. Over the years people would use our table to leverage themselves out of their chairs and as a result the wooden pegs in the table leaves broke which made the leaves basically sit on the expandable slides. I was always afraid someone would lean on just one leaf and it would pop up on the opposite side possibly injuring someone. Installing these brackets has made the table top very secure.

I have an antique table we use daily and the leaves don't stay together well on their own. I shopped and you were the best price and have a trusted reputation.

How much does this protrude out from the bottom of the table? I need something that's only going to protrude about 1/4 of an inch from the table bottom.

I need 6 of the horse shoe table connectors. The total width must be 3.25"The arms must be 7/16"and the dimensions center to center of the prongs must be 2.75". They are for an antique table and I want to keep the original latches and don't want to re-position them. Do you have this item? The 7/16" is the width of the arm. The length from the grip to the end is 2".
Michael T on Dec 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Easy to install and have performed perfectly in keeping the sections together and aligned. I'd purchase them again.
I'm making an overlay to increase the area of my dining room table. At its maximum the leaves will hang 18" over the table sides. I want to keep the flat, side-by-side sections free of pins or other guides so I can store the two leaves. Does anyone have an opinion on how well these will align and hold the two leaves?
M A on Feb 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The alignment is really on you and how well you position them. I made an octagonal dinning room extension table with 1 2ft leaf and 1 1ft leaf and I have these locks on the underside of both sections of table and all leaves and they work great. Like I said it's a matter of how you position them and if they have the right tension on them.
What are the dimensions of the yoke legs? width from center to center of legs and the width of each leg?
Sammc on Oct 1, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately the Rockler product did not fit (the forks were too small) my English Geo III D-end dining table, so I had to return my purchase. Movers lost my original fork inserts. I am still searching.... Good luck to you, Sammc.
I am adding two 15in leaves, one on each side of table. They will be stored in closet when not in use. Could these be used to secure the leaves to the table and then use drop leaf supports for weight bearing?
Syd W on Nov 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes. I have larger heavy end leaves that sit on steel pull out bars. These keep the leaves nice and snug. The good thing is they are almost flush under the table so no catching of clothing when installed and they go into the closet with the storage of the leaves so almost nothing protrudes from the bottom of the table when the leaves are not used. I like em.
What is width of each of the tangs? Thank you.
