Question I'm trying to locate a piece of hardware.

I'm making a top tier to a dungeons and dragons table I've made in the past (with help from this very forum!).

And I want to be able to raise and lower the tier, so I don't have to just lift it off the table if I don't need it in place.


I want to use spring loaded pegs, but I can't find what those are called. I thought spring loaded pegs is the right thing but it brings up nothing.

I just would like to be able to drill into the legs of this top tier I made, install these peg hardware things and then be able to push them in when I need to raise the table, and they will pop back out to hold it in place.

They are the type of hard ware you see in many office buildings, to allow for raising and lowering of employee desks.

I've not seen any desks that have the type of things you describe. Most of the desks I've seen that allowed the tops to adjust from a slanted surface to a straight one had holders that folded out of the way to let them slant.

If you're talking about the actual feet, those screw into the legs.

If Woodworking is so much fun why isn't it called WoodFUNNING?

I've made a few videos

Are you talking about the spring-loaded pins like you might find in a pair of crutches?
