Dream Dinette

Just installed the Dream Dinette mechanism in my rig. It is awesome, but it did not come with installation Instructions. Would anyone be willing to share pics of the underside of the table that shows how the nylon slide mechanism and the locking lever work?
The device goes up and down as it is supposed to but I can't seem to get the lever to stay in the locked position. Not sure if I did something wrong on the install. When I lift it to dining height I have to manually put the lever in to the locked position, but the lever won't stay locked.
Thanks!

I'd give the manufacturer a call tomorrow.

Jsutherl,
Thanks so much! This is exactly what I needed to see. I didn't have the lever place properly - it worked but would not stay locked. This will be an easy fix for me. Thanks again!
Adam

I too have the dream dinette - love it. I still haven't installed my locking arm because it extends past the end of the table. I don't believe I installed it wrong. My table just might be shorter. I'll need to cut the arm short and make a bend for the handle. Thanks for the pics. The instructions weren't the best.

Bought the Dream Dinette on line, received it yesterday and as stated by others no installation instructions. There was no paperwork at all with it. I sent an email to Cass Hudson. It doesn't look too complicated, but I would like to do it correct the first time. Can anyone tell me if they included the screws to mount the thing to the wall and the table top?? I didn't get anything other than the couple nuts and bolts.

Charlie,
No I didn't get any screws either. I had to hit Home Depot for some #10 1 1/4" screws to hold it to the wall. I also had to buy a piece of finish plywood and cut it to size as a filler for the bottom of the table (see pictures above) And I bought some various lengths of SPAX wood screws (my favorite wood screw) and used those and some wood glue to attach the filler to the table. Then more SPAX to attach the support to the filler piece and bottom of the table.

I think you can see all that in the pictures above if you look closely.

I know with my installation I wasn't able to get great screw purchase on some of the mounting screws on the walls. Did you have this issue, and if so what did you use? Some sort of Molly screw?

I didn't need any molly screws or wall anchors. I found that most of the screws cinched up tight. And so far <knock on wood> it's been holding just fine. Maybe I was just lucky?

I love the table. Mine has been holding up great as well. I would still like to get a screw in every hole though.
