CHICO – Slide in connector Alu/Zinc die-casting

Sliding connector to be screw on.

The CHICO is a precision connector made of aluminum die-cast zinc, which can also be used in Corian®, Marlan®, and similar materials in addition to wood materials. The halves of the connector are screwed into a groove (50 x 12 x 10 mm) and joined in the longitudinal direction by sliding them together. An integrated stop allows assembly and disconnection in one direction only. The joint is immediately load bearing. Its small dimensions and high stability make it ideal for the applications where high product safety is required, and components (furniture, interior design components, etc.) must be easily assembled and disassembled. (i.e. exhibition construction).

Processing – FITTING: Place the connector with the tip at the beginning of the half-moon groove at an angle approximately equal to the rounding of the groove. Press in the direction of the groove slightly and make sure that the connector halves are inserted mirrored to each other. Use a hammer to make the SUNNY slide along the rounding of the halve-moon groove. Thus, the cutting edges intersect with the component. Make sure that the connectors at the outer ends are flush with the surface of the component. In addition, the SUNNY can be inserted with a few drops of KNAPP®Glue PU+. To assemble the parts, first, insert and then slide them in a longitudinal direction into each other. For final assembly, glue the joint before connecting the components.

Tip: this connector locks permanently – so “tests” are not possible! The pressing pressure is about 10 kg per connection (depending on the material).

For preparatory work, please refer to the general processing instructions.
