Table strap

When we were looking at our Rockwood 2701SS this spring we were surprised to discover that the table is not secured to the floor and that, apparently, we were supposed to stow it for travel. That seemed like a bit of a PITA, and with the reports I read of hardware breaking on these tables I wanted a better way. So I installed a strap.

On our first trip out I secured one of the two legs to a support rail with a straps and a pair of screws and washers. That was fine for travelling security but not so great for our daughter's legroom - she usually sits on the inside of the U-shaped dinette. Enter the turn button.

I used the same strap, but started with a larger hole through which the button would pass.




Here's the buckle in place over the hole.




The buckle installed...




... with the tabs bent over the back plate.




Here's the turn button installed on the chair rail.




Strap unfastened so we can push the table out for more legroom.




Strap fastened for travel. It's hard to see but there is a finish washer under the nut on the left side.




Now the table stays upright all of the time.
