          After glue & a nail stool leg was still wobbly. This dowel gripper made it tight. Great product.

            I bought this kit to see if it would work on stripped wooden dresser knobs. My daughter had about 15 knobs in her bedroom that were either completely stripped and falling off or almost there. My husband cut tiny pieces to fit inside the knobs then screwed them back into place. Worked great! The knobs are still on tight and none have come loose so far. Saved us about $40.0O (new knobs)!

              Did two chairs. Cut strips smaller than pictured. Have plenty left for more chairs. Only thing, had to scotch tape the strips to hold them on, as they kept popping off. The two chairs are still sturdy after two weeks of use. Have used wood glue before on other chairs and it didn't hold.

                I have a dinnette table with 8 chairs that are bout 25 years old and wobbly. The screw and dowel are something I have been looking for for a long time. The repair of the chairs will hopefully provide additional years of use of a heavy durable set of chairs.
