Honda Element Aftermarket Table Kit (Adapter and Hardware Only)
Materials: ABS, Nylon, Carbon Fiber
I created a custom adapter that brings back the favorite discontinued accessory for the Honda Element. No longer will you be without such an incredible camping or tailgating accessory. Stop searching eBay, this is better than the original. This listing is for an adapter that will install on the underside of your spare tire cover allowing you to connect extremely similar camping legs that are easily purchased and still in production (Walmart.com and Amazon actively carries compatible legs, more information at the end of this description). The new legs are constructed of stronger materials (steel) and operate way smoother than the original accessory. They sit at an angle instead of perfectly vertical. This provides more stability as well as less chance of something buckling under stress. This design will support more weight. I know with my design it will also last longer and hold up better to abuse when compared to the original adapter clips. This new adapter connects on the underside of the spare tire cover in the exact place the original accessory was designed to fit. All hardware needed to install this kit is included (bolts, nuts, washers). You just need a Philips screw driver ( + ). You will also need to buy the legs separately (Coleman Compact Folding Table). This kit was not designed to work with the original, impossible to find, Honda table legs.
There are two different materials I used to produce this product:
Nylon with Carbon Fiber - This is the ultimate material available for functional parts and 3D printing right now. I have even read where some material suppliers claim it is as strong as aluminum. It is designed to last, but carries a higher price because it is expensive to buy, complicated to store, and requires a specially tuned and customized printer to print. The infused carbon fiber is also extremely abrasive and wears down the print head quicker than any other filaments. It is finished in a mat black color. Nylon will not wear with friction like other plastics. This means every time you clip the legs in the nylon adapter won't wear down. This is for the avid camping enthusiast.
Black ABS - This is a non flashy close representation to the original connecting part that was designed for the Honda Element. It will match the underside of your spare tire lid (like anyone will even see that) and you'll never know its there unless you point it out.
These adapters are designed to stay connected to the underside of the lid even when the lid is secured back in the car. For normal use, the ABS material will perform perfectly. Nylon with infused carbon fiber will stand up to drops and even crushing. Its not indestructible, but it will take a beating. The legs stay connected to the adapters until you physically pull them off. You can even lift the table, or lay it on its side to hose it off. The snap fit is also designed with less possibility of breaking when compared to the original design. The table legs you buy will be doing all of the flexibility or stress, and they are high quality injection molding. They are snap fitting just as they were intended to by the manufacture, we're just changing the table top.
This adapter will not fit the original legs designed for the Honda Element. This adapter will fit the Coleman Outdoor Compact Table available at Walmart or Amazon for 28-40 dollars.
It was brought to my attention that as our Elements get used and haul things the table will get a slight warp. Depending on how warped your table top is, you may need to step on it to install the legs. You just need to temporally step on the center to take the warp out of the table as the legs are attached.

I am so pleased with my purchase! I just attached the adapters and it was such a simple process thanks to the video on the instructional page as well as the handy dandy nut holder. I'm headed out camping this week and I'm excited to put my 2006 table to use (for it's first time). Now I just need him to 3d print me a new gear box. ;)
Had long wanted this accessory for my 2003 Honda Element. Easy installed and quick response to my question about legs! Super happy to have this and pleased with the results!
I admit, I was skeptical! Pieces were spot on and fit legs perfectly! Tool included was a great touch. Highly recommend!
Perfect as expected! Had an issue with the table legs from Walmart as they were oddly too small to connect to the clips. Reached out to Jacob and he was great to suggest another set from Amazon. Same table set, but the second set fit perfect! Thank you very much.
