Veritas® Knock-Down Fasteners - Woodworking
Veritas® Knock-Down Fasteners - Woodworking
Veritas® Knock-Down Fasteners - Woodworking
Developed for knock-down construction, these bolts and cross-dowels are useful anywhere you need a strong butt joint, or where the material is not strong enough to support a threaded insert.

The brass cross-dowel has a threaded hole through the middle to accept the accompanying zinc-plated steel bolt. The combination of brass and steel prevents lockup, permitting easy disassembly. No complex joinery is required for rigid construction, and the bolt can be snugged if anything loosens due to humidity changes. The cross-dowel has a slot at one end so you can use a screwdriver to align it with the bolt. A threaded hole on the other end of the cross-dowel allows mounting of a dowel cap.

Each fastener includes a cross-dowel, washer and bolt. The largest size is available only as a package of four.

Available in brass, or steel with zinc or black plating, the dowel caps are used to conceal the hole made for the cross-dowel. Sized relative to the cross-dowel, each cap has a boss on the underside for registration in the hole drilled for the cross-dowel; a set screw (two are supplied in 1/4" and 5/16" lengths) mounts into 8-32 threaded holes in the cross-dowel and the underside of the cap, fastening the cap in place. The diameter of each cap is about 1/8" larger than the stated diameter of the cross-dowel. See the chart for cross-dowel and bolt sizing, as well as the recommended stock thickness.

Made in Canada.
