Our tension lock tool-less technology creates sturdy furniture that can support 150 lbs. Here’s how it works. Instead of using tools our products are designed with tabs and slots that are integrated directly to create interlocking joints. Each tab is secured into the slot to ensure durability for all ages and sizes of children. In fact, these joints are actually stronger than most other hardware joints because they are directly connected to each other rather than being held together by screws.
Our tabs and slots are engineered with a calculated amount of interference. In normal language that just means pieces are held together with tension and friction, keeping the furniture durable and safe. Once the parts are all completely locked into place they will not move. Parts are designed to bend slightly as you put them together. This allows them to fit into place and create the tension that holds the furniture together so well. Each piece works together to create a sturdy piece of furniture.
