What Are Cams & Cam Bolts?
Furniture cam lock systems are used to connect two vertical panels in panel furniture.In wood joinery, cam lock nuts and special lock screws and connecting bolts are alternatives to traditional wood and adhesive joints. They’re often used with prefabricated fiberboard and wood furniture pieces, which are commonly known as “ready-to-assemble,” “knock-down” and “flat-pack” kits.
The Benefits Of Using Furniture Cam Lock Systems:Reduce the use of adhesives, environmentally friendly. Invisible. The cam lock nuts are not visible from the outer surface. Furniture using cam lock nuts can be disassembled and assembled many times. No need for special tools for assembly. You only need a soft-head mallet and a cross-head screwdriver.
