These are the connecting bolts for use with the MaxiFix E housings for connecting cabinet panels.
They have an M6 or M8 thread (based on your choice), and can be driven into predrilled holes in chipboard / particleboard, leaving a protruding rod which will be clamped by the housing part.
They are made out of steel, with a zinc plating. The housing counterpart is of course required to make this a functioning product, which can be found in Related Products lower down on the page!

Hi, guys. My name is Darrel and I am head of the tech team here at LocksOnline. Thanks for taking some time to tune in to a quick look at of our one of our product review videos. Now we put these shorts, little videos together to be able to give you, our customers, the opportunity to see the products that we have to offer, perhaps a little more detail than you may expect from some pictures and from a bit of descriptive text.
Today I want to talk to you about a set of maxi fittings that we have on our website. These devices here are designed if you are building a carcass or you have a wardrobe or you are putting a kitchen together, etc., you may want to connect one part of a piece of MDF or a chipboard to another piece. What the idea of the this particular unit is it's designed that if you were to drill a hole into a unit, you can then by screwing this into the other set of units create a 90 degree joint that allows you then that when this goes into position like that it allows that by the use of allowing key to turn this and it would and it will pull the two pieces of timber together. It's quite hard to try and explain but this particular part will be on say this piece of timber, this part will be in another piece of timber, and then as you clamp that together it pulls the panels together and makes a nice tight fitting.
So this is just one the range of the products that we have and as you can see there it uses an Allen key that allows you to pull it in tight. Now there are all different lengths of ranges of these that you will be able to see on our website. There are sold as separate items so this will one be particular item and this will be the other item. And we only got the two here to be able to give you our customers the opportunity to be able to see how they work together.
So let's have look at this very, very quickly. The overall dimension of that there is about 35mm. The thickness there also is 15mm there as well and this actually travels in. It actually goes in quite a bit of a distance there so there is around about or clamping ability there of at least, I would suggest, something in the region of at least 7 or 8 mm that is how much it can move that board in as you twist that around. There is a degree of flexibility in respects to that.
So there you go, guys. There is not much more that I can say on that but at least now being able to see it in the flesh, so to speak, and me trying to explain it to you perhaps will give you a little more insight as to what this application is and whether or not it's going to be fit for your particular use. But if you need a bit more information on this or any of the products that we have, by all means, pop us over an email or use the live chat that we have or simply do it the old-fashion way and pick up the phone. We would love to hear from you and more importantly, we'd love to see you as a customer. So from me Darrel and all of us here at the team, thanks for taking the time to tune in. We will catch you real soon. Bye, bye now.
