Good advice re the hinge clip protectors. Thanks Knunut. Have the same issue with our 26U. Slight bump and they pop-out. Very frustrating. Went to the Baer Supply site and looked them up. Not a lot of detail but they sell for $0.59 each. Great value if they fix the problem. Only issue is the $13 shipping fee. Seems quite expensive but probably worth it to fix the problem.

Thanks for the info on the hinge protectors. Even though the shipping is as much as the parts, I went ahead and ordered them. As many times as I've been down on the floor trying to get them back together, I would have gladly paid twice as much. I thought they were plastic, but the website shows "metal".

You people constantly amaze me with your knowledge.

Hinge Protector

Sound's good. I can't take credit for the find. It was somebody at the Jackson Center campground that told me. I was amazed he found them. Can't wait to hear about there success.
I better order some for "All" the hinges.

I see a pic of the protector but how do they attach to the hinge?

I received the hinge protectors today and got them installed. They seem to work as advertised. I tried to post a video but it shows to be still processing. It shows a maximum mp4 files size of 500mb and mine is only 3.14mb. To install, simply insert the wide end of the clip into the hinge just above the release on the back of the hinge. I haven't tried to remove one yet, but it looks easy with a small knife or screwdriver. The Wurth catalog and the packing list show "steel", but they are obviously plastic.

I tried again on the video of the hinge clip. Thought maybe the YouTube fix might make it load.

Table Top Rails Replacement

Rcvd. rails today ,were ordered in July. Rcvd. Two 36" long rails 13/16 wide. The orig. design is 4 Rails ,11"L x 1 1/4 wide. . No instruction's no holes in rails.
Called Cust. Serv.& Lv. Msg. Not sure what to do with them. There not even as wide as Orig. My only thought is these new might go "Under" original rails.
Will keep you posted !
