Hafele Worktop Leg Chrome 870mm
good but tricky to shorten.
These legs are strong and good quality. The height can be adjusted in two ways. The foot on the bottom can be screwed out to increase the height by 25mm. If you need to shorten the leg you can cut it. Probably an angle grinder with cutting disk is best. However it is very difficult to get the fitting out of the top of the tube prior to cutting. This is because it is a "taperlock" system. To drive the fitting out prior to cutting you have to remove the foot and then using a long piece of timber or similar try to drive the top fitting out. You must strike the black nylon outer collar, NOT the metal centre part or you will never get it out. (This is not easy). If you are shortening the tube by more than 55mm then cut the top of the leg off first (since this will not cut the fitting inside, which is 50mm long) then drive the fitting out of the cut off piece downwards.
I really don't understand why the manufacturer doesn't supply the leg with the top fitting loose, so it can be driven in after the tube is cut to length.

I needed a leg for a garage worktop. This was the best price and very easy to fit. Plus it's very sturdy and can be adjusted to vary the height. Worth the money.

It is too long and although it says adjustment , it can only be made longer.

Does what it should. Good sturdy product at a very reasonable price.
