Item details



steel, metal

Philly Fabrication is the leading resource for premium hairpin legs in the U.S. Legs are sold individually so please select 3 if you need 3 legs. Each leg comes with 5, 1 inch, self drilling, #8 Tek screws and a floor protector. Please choose your size and finish from the drop down Menu. The plate is 4.75x4.75, the bar is 3/8 steel.

There is a 3 leg minimum for each order.

We hand make each leg in Philadelphia, Pa. We use only tried and true methods for each of our processes. Some hairpin leg suppliers plug weld aiming to make a lower quality product and pass it off as unique. They claim their process is more technical and its really just a short cut that produces the a sub par weld. Our legs are welded around the entire bar creating the strongest weld possible. While our method of welding completely around the bar takes a little longer, we know this is the only way to produce the strongest leg. We make legs for a lifetime or more and they are truly a heirloom product.

We have designed our legs based off of the many different legs we have seen over the years in various thrift shops and antique stores. Our design offers two screw holes for each weld that is critical in helping to keep each leg extra stable. We have a table in our shop that we have used everyday for the past three years, made from our hairpin legs and screws, and they perform like they were brand new. Let me know if you want to see a daily photo of our hairpin table.

The hairpin leg was created by Henry Glass. The original design was patio furniture with hairpins for the legs, arms and back with fabric stretched for the seat and back. The metal was a special magnesium steel made to withstand salt water climates for coastal customers in the Northeast. As time progressed, the leg's steel type changed to mild steel and was sold as a detachable leg by various companies; each company having a similar design as Henry Glass never patented his designs.

Please contact us with any questions at all, we are here to help. Please take into consideration your sizing needs and the address it is to be shipped to. We cannot be responsible for wrong sizing or wrong addresses so please contact us about questions with sizing.

The short Answer, about 400 lbs. However, the smaller sizes can hold even more weight. For instance, the 6 inch legs can hold about 1000 lbs or more. The 16s can hold around 800 if secured correctly. Our screws do work well and we have a table we use everyday as our main work table with 28 inch legs, our provided hardware with a Formica mid century top. We have used this table everyday for three years and have never once had a problem. We've stacked close to 300 lbs on this table no problem so we can say our screws and legs together are great for dense woods and composites. Please ask us any questions you have.
Yes, the cold rolled or silver grey option is best for painting. Contact us for any questions on this.
Legs bent around a tighter radius stiffens the leg and makes it more rigid whereas a larger radius nose gives the steel more room to wiggle and bounce causing a shakier table. Our legs have a thinner nose for a more stable leg.
Multiply .1944 by the size of your legs and that will give you the distance from the welds to where the nose lines up on the ground.
