New Table HardwareMetal Table Slide
If you are changing the hardware on an existing table, Van Dyke’s offers table leaf locks, hinges, drop leaf supports, hinges, dowels, leaf aligners, and leaf slides. We offer table slides for 4-leg and pedestal style tables in both metal and wood.
Table Slides use a rack and pinion system to ensure the table is level and balanced when sliding. If your existing table sticks, it may be time to change the slides. It is important that you use the proper length table slide when choosing a new slide.


Determining Table Slide Sizetable-slides
To determine the appropriate length of the table slide for your particular table, measure the length of the table when it is fully closed without any leaves in place.
The table slide should be no shorter than half the length of the table when it is fully closed.
