How To Extend The Longevity of the Lagun Table Leg System

The Original Lagun system has been around for over 40 years and the tolerances have been perfected.  Lagun parts are made out of anodized aluminum, which is meant for longevity. 

Let’s talk about some ways to ensure your system will last for years to come:

Make sure the parts of the system are assembled correctly.


The part most commonly assembled incorrectly is the arm.  The washer side of the bushing should always face towards the taps of the leg and table mounting plate.  The tap should be fully inserted into the bushing.


Another thing to check is the bracket / leg connection.  There is a slotted groove on the backside of the leg, which allows the aluminum track to clench onto the bracket when the handle is tightened.  If you are adjusting the vertical height outside of the adjustment range, it may cause problems (such as crossthreading/seizing the handle or pinching the groove on the back of the leg).


The handles should be loosened before adjusting the system. 

When you are ready to rotate your tabletop, first, loosen the handle, allowing it to pivot smoothly.  If you are adjusting the system while the arm handles are still snug, this may cause extra wear on the tap from the resistance. 

Know the weight limits.

Be mindful of leaning on or using the tabletop to support yourself standing up.  The system weight limits include the weight of the tabletop plus anything placed on top of it.

  • Standard Table Mounting Plate - up to 50 lbs
  • Folding Table Mounting Plate - up to 40 lbs

Center the table mounting plate.

When deciding where to attach the table mounting plate to your tabletop, as centered as possible is always best.  Having it offset may cause excess strain at the pivot point, especially if the tabletop is rectangle shaped.

  • Standard Table Mounting Plate - tabletop up to 30” x 40”
  • Folding Table Mounting Plate - tabletop up to 24" x 36"

Keep your system clean.

It’s a good idea to use a clean dry rag to wipe the tracks of the bracket & leg periodically.  We do not recommend using any lubricants or cleaners, as these would attract debris in the air to collect. 

Lock the system in place before traveling.

The system does not necessarily have to be disassembled for travel, however, you would want to make sure the tabletop is locked in place, so it is not swinging around.  Also, when driving with the tabletop assembled, we recommend retracting the tabletop into the most condensed position as possible (vs. having it fully extended).
