  • 50x TUCK 6×25 mm
  • 50x TUCK 8×35 mm

The TUCK is a spring steel compression dowel that is immediately load-bearing for attaching components without glue or clamps. TUCK is available in five sizes (Ø 6 mm x 25 mm, Ø 8 mm x 35 mm, Ø 10 mm x 32 mm, Ø 10 mm x 28 mm and Ø 10 mm x 16 mm) and is processed like a conventional wooden dowel. The TUCK is self-tightening and no clamping aid or glue is required when assembling the workpiece (cabinet, furniture, interior design, etc.). The spring steel design guarantees permanent tightening by pushing against the borehole wall. The processing can be done with a dowel-boring machine or CNC. Due to eliminating usual clamping aids, the productivity of the gluing of workpieces (cabinets) can also be drastically increased even in smaller manufacturers. Also in industrial furniture manufacturing, the production time per workpiece can be considerably reduced.
