Toolless Fixation for Fittings
Unilin, Izegem, Belgium
In-house design Luc Maertens, Guy Van Hooydonck
Uni-snapper is based on a patented technology that makes it possible to assemble not only furniture boards but also fittings in a completely tool-less manner. To this end, the Uni-snapper technology combines a special plastic insert with an innovative drilling technology. The insert comprises two parts that need to be pushed into the drilling hole of the furniture panel. When the second part is pushed into the first part, the wings of the first part spread and affix the fitting to the panel in this way – an intuitive and time-saving technology for fastening fittings.
