You may like the snap 2 but I think a few of us who have had them have replaced due to wobbles.

Another idea would be to cut a 2x4 the width of the table and rip it down the middle. Mount one piece to the wall for the table to rest on and the other to the underside of the table so the original rip lines meet. Next install one of those rotary casement window locks on each on the bottom at the ends of the wood strips to lock the two pieces of wood together. Might try to do this mod next week while we babysit a fireworks stand.

I then used a 1x1 and attached it to the end of the table on the bottom for the whole width. I cut a duplicate and mounted it to the wall. I then got a hinge that just slips together so the table can be removed. This was an improvement but not firm enough for me. When I mounted to the wall there was only one stud available below the window for the width of my table. I cut a new piece of 1x1 that crosses three studs under the window and that did the trick. Solid! I then stained the 1x1 pieces and permanently screwed to the wall. It looks good.
This is the direction I think we will be going eventually. The SNAP 2 Folding Base is essentially what we are trying to replace. There are a couple of ideas, however, that I'd like to try before attacking the dinnet wall. The addition of "L" brackets to the verticals at the junction of the legs and where the table top supports entersect the verticals seems like something that some have had some success with. As we are heading out to a local campground Monday for a few days, I think we'll give it a try. The base is going to be replaced anyway, right!!!
Will let everyone know how it works.

Then I saw the new legs and I am still thinking about what I want to do.

If my legs break (and they will one day), I will have to decide.
Lou, do you not have the pedestal table and 4 chairs?

Looks like a lot of metal that could be used to make something useful.

I can see how that stand might produce the death wobble. That wobble that sends everyone's drinks and bowls of captain crunch Into daddy's lap. Thanks for the picture and info.
