Tension rod for cabinets6/15
I may be looking for a needle in a haystack but I swear I've seen these somewhere, but Google and phone calls got zilch. I may be searching with wrong terms.
What I'd like to find is some small diameter rod that would span the distance between cabinet sides, and fit into 5mm shelf pin holes. Perhaps spring loaded or cam tighten at varying lengths.
Think mini shower or curtain rod that could be moved up and down shelf pin hole line.
I hope that makes sense. Anyone have a line on something like that?
Why not use what is called a spring tension
Thanks D, I did think of that but the sticker is adapting to 5mm hole, which I can't modify.
Peter , maybe you could affix 5mm
shelf clips to the ends of the spring rods ?
Usually there are plastic or rubber end caps but the rod is steel , it could easily be done get out the JB Weld .
Here is an idea...
Glue one of the CLOSED versions of these onto each end...
A quick search turned up 7/16" tension curtain rod. Replace the rubber end caps with 3/8" or 10mm wood dowels (the tube ID should be close to that) that have 5mm pins sticking out the end. I'd turn down 5/8" aluminum and press fit 5mm pins.
What is this being used for? I don't understand the purpose.
