Thread: Pilaster Clips for Unknown Brand Cabinet

    Question Pilaster Clips for Unknown Brand Cabinet

    Hi, I'm new to the forum!

    Hello (:

    I recently purchased a second-hand metal cabinet for the workshop that is missing most of the pilaster clips. I tried contacting Knape-Vogt as they seem to be the main brand behind these clips and they recommended a 256. Documentation on clip dimensions is very poor anywhere I've looked. The 256 is close to a half inch off and the shape is very different. I can't determine a brand on the cabinet so all I have to go by is the dimensions of the clips I do have and the space between the slots on the standard. Luckily, I do have a clip for reference. I've attached some photos to this post. Is this a common problem when buying cabinets with pilasters? If anyone can nudge me in the right direction to find some of these clips, that would be awesome. I didn't imagine this would be so difficult lol.

    Probably outside the scope of furniture, you would be better off asking in a garage forum, good luck.
