Twist-lock table legs

I was lucky enough to see a brand new Eddie Bauer trailer last weekend. It had just arrived in the UK and made it to our big annual gathering in Shropshire.

I really liked the trailer - I thought it was well designed and well built. It might sound weird, but the thing I liked most were the twist-lock table legs. Can anyone tell me who makes them?

Bully Boy,
can you send a picture of them? I know Bradd and Hall carry some that lock into the floor and the table clicks in from the top. We have two for our table. We we take the table down there are two covers that allow the holes to be covered so no debris fall into them. don't know if this is what you mean.

They work great and we recommend two so you can leave the table in place as you transit.




SKU: table leg assembly
Includes Leg, Base Plate, Base Plate Plug and Top Plate for Table More details...

Price: $50.00

Table Leg Height:

Thanks SL4BLLT.

Sorry - I didn't get a photo, but what you've shown isn't what was fitted. The base plate in the floor had a small, rectangular slot in it, maybe about 1" x 1/2". There was a T-shaped peg on the end of the post which slotted into the floor plate, and a half turn locked the whole thing solid. Very neat.

I think the Bradd and Hall parts look more rugged as the connection point looks larger. One interesting thing is the EB comes with two extra polls and mounts (but not an extra table). Here are the floor mounts...

That's them!

Any idea who makes them and where I can order a set?

You would think there would be a mfg vanity logo underneath, but nope, nothing. Don't know who made them.

Hmmmm... that was not the case with ours (maybe changed for 2013) just two pedestal tubes, the table, itself, and the floor mounts. PM me if your table wiggles enough to spill liquids out of your cups and glasses ... think we have that solved.

AS parts and service has been superb!

Sounds like me getting extra floor connection point mounts and legs may have been a mix-up at the factory. Mine was missing the rear Eddie Bauer badge on the rear hatch door. Airstream sent me a replacement shown in another thread.

On the table wiggle issue, if you don't get the stud at the bottom of the legs latched in perfectly into the flange on the floor - rotated in 1/4 turn - it will wiggle badly. To fix this, put the table leg into the flange and rotate the leg counter clockwise a full turn or two to loosen the stud to allow more clearance to lock into the floor mount flange. The legs are much more stable when locked in properly...

In my case teaching the family not to push on the table when standing/sitting takes a while... Even locked in, that will slosh a bowl of soup

Yes, wrong height but fastener type looks right. Of course if you wanted to lower the table to bed height and have some more support across the middle it might be all right. Also if you wanted a narrow coffee table - that height might be OK

I'm seriously thinking about swapping out the factor legs/mounts for the Sequoia legs/mounts. Reason being, I think I would like to put two more legs closer to the edge to make the table more stable. I can only tell my 7-year old boys so many times to not lean on the table (plus I would actually like to lean on the table -- it's a table after all ). I'd prefer that all 4 legs match.

I am also considering making some shirt legs for when the dinette is in bed mode for a bit extra support.

I've spent about 4 hours online looking for the factory type. The Springfield type are close, but the reference a 7" diameter base and the EBAY has 6" diameter base, and the EBAY legs are on 2" in diameter.

Here are the Sequoia's:
