I purchased these last week when I thought I’d be fastening the tops to the nightstands this weekend. Well I screwed up the tops and now have a few more weeks of work(delayed until after holiday gifts are done). Anyways, I just received these fasteners in the mail yesterday and was all excited….until I read the back of the bags. I can’t remember the exact words since I dont have it in front of me right now but it goes something like this:
Warning, materials used in this have been shown to cause cancer in California testings. Wash hands after handling.
Really? A metal table top fastener has materials which may cause cancer? Not sure if it contains lead or what. Either way, no thank you. I don’t want to use anything that may cause cancer in something that I want to hopefully pass down as an heirloom. I think I’ll make my own wood fasteners. I’m returning these this weekend.
The fasteners themselves look heavy duty, but due to that warning I won’t use these and it receives 1 star.
EDIT: This review is worthless after finding out that rockler puts Prop 65 warning on ALL their products, even if they aren’t affected. So just going by the construction of these fasteners, they seem to be well made and heavy duty.
