How to Use a Lifetime Fold-In-Half Table

One of the most innovative products that Lifetime makes is the Fold-In-Half table. Our Fold-In-Half tables come in a variety of sizes and shapes ranging from square and round tables to 4-foot, 6-foot, and even 8-foot banquet tables. This unique design allows for easy carrying, transporting, and storage.

However, because of this innovative design, you may have questions on how to properly fold and unfold your table. If so, here are a few tips and an instructional video to help you use your table.

Mechanisms.PNGLifetime fold-in-half tables have two folding mechanisms – a locking clip and an automatic locking system.  To unfold a Lifetime fold-in-half table with a locking clip, locate the molded hand slot where the ends of the table are, and pull open the table. Because of the durable design to keep the table securely closed, it may require extra pressure to open.  Find the red tab clip at the center of the table, and push it to the indicated lock position. Set each leg till they are straight, and make sure the steel rings slide into place before setting the table upright.

To fold the table when not in use, set the table on its side and slide the steel rings away from the leg hinges.  Fold in one leg at a time. If the leg doesn’t fold with a simple push, place a small amount of pressure on the hinge with your hand and it will fold easily.  Unlock the clip by pushing to the indicated unlock position, and close the table making sure it’s tightly secure. You can now carry it to storage with the easy carry handles on the side.

The self-locking table may be tricky because you will feel like you need an extra step to make sure that table is locked into position, but the great thing about this mechanism is that it automatically locks during a regular set-up process. So to unfold a Lifetime self-locking fold-in-half table, rest the table on its side with the handles facing up and unfold.  When opening both legs, the unique fixed position of the center bar will automatically lock the pin, keeping the table open.  Unfold the second set of legs and set the table upright. When it comes time to fold the table after use, simply fold the legs inward once more.  By folding in the legs, the pin in the center automatically releases and you can fold the table in half to store it away.

Now you are ready to enjoy your Lifetime Fold-In-Half Table!! If you do have additional questions, always feel free to contact our Customer Care department at: 1-800-225-3868.
