08 Oct OVVO Releasable Connector for Drilling Operations
There’s no need for tools, glue, or screws. Simply push, click and connect. That’s how OVVO describes its newest connector, the V-0930.RD25, which was specifically designed for panels as slim as ½” (12mm).
Distributed by Richelieu Hardware, the family of award-winning OVVO connectors keeps growing. This new invisible connector is designed for connecting cabinet parts using simple drilled holes in one of the parts. The plastic connector has ribbed dowels (1 or 2) that are located on standard 32mm centers, and these dowels help lock the connector into the drilled holes to deliver superior joint strength.
Once installed, the connectors simply click together. The 32mm spacing in the double-doweled connector works well in existing horizontal drilling and CNC set-ups. The connectors can be inserted in the factory so cabinets can be shipped RTA (ready-to-assemble). That means parts can be shipped unassembled, and that saves on shipping costs or on delivery trips in the shop truck because flat pallets occupy less space than completed cabinets.
The connectors can be either KD (knock-down) or permanent. Drilling on the edge of a panel simplifies the panel processing operations while continuing to provide all the benefits of OVVOs’ proven tool-free assembly method. The profiled router bit for creating the receiving half of the connector is available in either carbide or diamond versions.
