Mystery Bracket

Bought 26RLSS used. We can't figure out what these brackets are for. The salesman said they are to mount extension to the counter, but I can't figure out how they'd work. Does anyone have these and know what they are used for?

Panel looks like it is hinged at the bottom.

Is there a stop to keep it level when open?

Do you have the extension?

Panel indeed hinges open. It is one of those 'drawers' that opens up about 30 degrees, has a tray to keep small items in. Don't have any extension.

Thanks fonzie!

Any clue where I can get one? And how much they run? (Web search only turned up a Campco model that's not the same.)

X2. it's the counter extension. Mine was in one of the two pullout drawers underneath the couch in my Flagstaff. Have you checked there if applicable?

I have a 26RLSS, and the counter extension is stored under the couch, not actually in the couch drawer. Must admit, I have never used it.

Thanks to all of you! That solves the mystery. I found the extension under the sofa and it works, though a little wobbly. We'll see if we ever use it.

To make it more stable, just put some small wood wedges between top surface of extension and bottom of counter just above brackets......

We have one as well and use it only once and a while when making sandwiches and staging area. We don't use it to cut on due to the wobble but does come in handy once and a while. We also store ours under the couch as well, works very well there and stays in place while travel.

Try adding a 2nd leg to the end of the table so it doesn't wobble

I appreciate the suggestions!

I will try the wedge idea - think that will help a lot. If not successful I may try another leg, assuming my wife really wants to use it.

We discarded ours and I made a silverware drawer. Eventually put the front on the drawer.
