There is the expense involved of the new style but the change out is really easy if you are even slightly a handyman ...

Shortening Twist-Lock Table Leg

I'm trying to shorten a 26U Twist-lock table leg by about 1-1/2 inches. I've drilled out the rivets in the plastic thread-lock end but I can't get it off. The plastic thread-lock device won't pull or twist off. I tried to soften it in a buck of very hot water and that didn't work either. Suggestions?

Thank you.

I kept the stock table as is and bought a new leg from Cascade Depot, who sells the hardware used by Airstream.

Check to see if your post has a taper at the top.
I bought a 'locking' post, and the lock is a pain for one person, but is easily defeated.
Or as in my case, I just bought the leg and table base together. The leg is about $25 and comes in several lengths. The new table base was $8.

Plan B
If you really want to cut the leg, how about inserting a dowel or broom handle in the open end and tapping it? I don't have mine here so I can't see if it's open.
