1/2 way there. Not sure why they felt the need to design these like a 70's Buick. Much firmer now.

Looks like it was sewed on a Friday.

I can totally understand how the table height could rise with the issue between the wire chase and a softer cushion and I will not just redrill into the wall to make sure I stay away from the wires. I'll look at your other suggestion to see if I can just make a stop at a lower height.

Thanks for the replies!

I am currently installing the Dream Dinette Mechanism. My wife didn't like how high it was and wanted it 2-3 inches lower so a quick but permanent fix was I pushed down the table to the point where the height was to her satisfaction, marked that point on the bottom of the table and mounted the guide up to that point. I drilled a hole in the guide, back the length of the nylon slide and put a bolt through it to stop the nylon slide from traveling any further in the guide.

Now the table rises until the nylon slide hits the bolt and stops. A flip of the manual bar lock and the nylon slide is now sandwiched between the bolt and the manual bar lock.

Problem solved.

@bclemens: If the guide came with a preset hole the proper distance behind the lock grove and a bolt. It would make this mechanism much more versatile just by moving the guide forward to lower the maximum height of the table.

My table was high also. All I did was unlocked it lowered it to the height I liked. Leaving it at that height I went went under the table and marked the position of the slide unit in the track. I then drilled a 3/16 hole into which I inserted a bolt. Works great as the table can not go down lower. Then I turn the lock unit back on. That is behind the slide trapping the slide between it and the screw. The table can't lower or raise up in it's own. I have had no issues of it raising on it's own. Hopefully I can add a couple pictures of what I did.

What thickness of plywood did you use? Thanks for the photos, I'll do this next.

I did a few measurements and I believe that bc is correct on how all of this happened. My table is about 31" and I sink down in the cushion to about 15". I found a little indent in the poly bracket that I used to click the factory catch rod into and this gives me a table height about 28". If I firm us the seat with plywood this might be ok. If not I planned to make a new notch in the rail and shorten the catch rod so that I have a table that moves the way it was designed without having to undo a bolt.
