Connecting Components

Connecting components are typically used to join wood or two pieces of furniture together. From shelf and table assembly to the construction of sheds, they help to keep the wood strong and the project dependable. If you're using a drill to make a hole, you're likely to need a connecting component. 


Types of connecting components  

Connecting components include T-nuts and T-bolts, joint and angle brackets and corner cubes. 

  • T-nuts and T-bolts are used to fasten components to profiles. T-nuts are threaded steel inserts with prongs that insert claws into wood when they are tightened, and often work when wood screws fail. After a T-nut is installed, the T-bolt is used to join the parts together. 
  • Joint and angle brackets and corner cubes can be used to make a strong connection at an angle of 90°. 

Connecting components are commonly made from steel, iron and aluminum for superior strength and a heavier torque.


Benefits of connecting components

Connecting components are not only strong, but easy to use and take apart, too – great if you need to disassemble your project later.
