Nor Sap Twist-lock base

Is anybody using these on their boat? Iím thinking about using the same table and column in the pilot house and on the aft deck. It looks pretty slick but I was wondering how stable they are.

Coffee table, chart table, Excel table? Can you provide a link to what it is you're asking about?

They just make the pedestal and base. I’m going to screw a teak table top to it . This will be a dining table for two. Imtra Marine products is the distributor.

I went with the Springfield Thread-Lock base and really like it. Super stable. You model looks good too, but I'd have to see how the locking works. I used it to mount my grill on the swim deck (for at anchor, not underway).

Grady White Boats have been using the nor sap base and leg with their custom table for
Over ten years on the dual console boats. Great flush mounting base doesnt catch your toes
Some of their fiberglass and teak tables are over 10 pounds,at over 40mph they hold up
Great. If you can thru bolt the mounting screws,it should last without problems .keep a light coat
Of grease on the leg mounting threads.

Looks identical to the Todd Posi-lock base.

I think the Todd requires a hole in the deck for the post. This only requires holes for the mounting screws. I may be mistaken however.

Edit: I mean for the flush mount version. There is also a proud version that would not require that hole.

IF the table is to stay in place , the seat mounts will allow adjustement , and be far more robust if the table is grabbed going off a wave.

Good point, and if it's staying in place why worry about the mount protruding? Go with the stronger option.

In my case the grill is only mounted in use and I don't want the trip hazard on the swim platform, so I wanted flush mount.
