Here is the problem. Sofas and other furniture is sent out to customers with the castors, legs or feet separate – it makes sense, because delivery is easier and there is less risk of damage in transit.
But it is very easy to make a mistake screwing a leg into a T-Nut. If the customer does not get it quite right, then the sofa can break when they sit on it and the T-Nut is forced out. This leaves the supplier with unhappy customers, plus the cost of repairing or replacing the furniture.
Rivet T-Nuts are almost impossible to push out, states distributor Jet Press.They also offer a lead-in so they are less likely to be cross-threaded. Throughout the furniture industry, they are being used for legs, feet and castors, as well as headboards and for joining divan bases.
