Not Sure Which You Need?
With so many types of sofa legs, it can be difficult figuring out just which ones will work best for you. See the chartbelow to help you find the best set of legs.
|Hanger Bolt Mount Sofa Legs
This is the most common style of sofa legs in the United States and many other parts of the world. These legs can be identified by the pre-installed bolt in the leg, which has close threads.
To install or remove this leg, you would usually turn it by hand, similar to turning a door knob. Hanger Bolt sofa legs require a 5/16" Diameter T-Nut, T-Plate, or some other threaded insert to be installed into the couch where the sofa leg will be attached.
|Screw Mount Sofa Legs
These legs are considered the "Universal" leg, because they will work in almost any situation. These legs have holes drilled through them, and are attached by putting a regular wood screw through the hole and into the frame of the couch. Because they screw directly into the wood, no additional mounting hardware is needed. Installing or removing this style of leg usually requires the use of a screwdriver.
|Metric Sofa Legs
These sofa legs feature a bolt which has Metric threads, with M8 or M10 legs being the most common. These legs are mostly seen in European furniture. While they may look similar to Hanger Bolt legs, they are slightly different, and the two are not interchangeable.
If you currently have Metric legs and want standard 5/16" Hanger Bolt legs, you can easily replace the T-Nuts or T-Plates on your couch.
|Dowel Mount Sofa Legs
Used by many manufacturers for its simplicity. Mounting methods will vary from one project to the next, since these legs are usually used by manufacturers, carpenters, or to replace an existing leg of a similar style.
|OEM Sofa Legs
Used by some designers and manufacturers for specific projects. Mounting methods will vary from one project to the next, since these legs tend to be used for unique purposes.
