  • A toolless connection you can trust – the Claw Connector CC 8/5/30
  • The SC 8/60 and the SC 8/25: Simple, quick connections for projects large to small

Archdale, North Carolina, USA, August 23, 2022 – The foundation of any good piece of furniture comes down to the tiniest hardware holding it together. Those little things matter – and no one company understands that better than Häfele – an innovator and industry leader in connector technology for more than 90 years. Our family of Ixconnect connectors makes furniture assembly and installation more convenient and efficient, giving installers and project-doers the hardware needed to bring together components large and small. Our latest Häfele Exclusive connectors will be on display at the 2022 International Woodworking Fair (IWF) in booth #C1940.

Faster installation, fewer parts and fewer mistakes are possible with the Häfele Exclusive Ixconnect Claw Connector CC 8/5/30. The single piece of hardware connects wooden drawers quickly and easily without tools.


“Wooden drawer assembly doesn’t get any easier than this,” says Jon Farlow, category manager for Häfele. “With this one-piece claw connector, drawer components come together discreetly and securely – in less than a minute – all thanks to a simple, yet powerfully dynamic biting action.”

All you need is a few standard drill holes (front: 8 mm, side: 5 mm) for the patented CC 8/5/30 to claw into the perpendicular panel material, making a nice, tight fit. Wooden drawer panels as thin as a half inch have a reliable, invisible connection when the claw bites into the MDF panels.

Complementing our claw connector is the Ixconnect Rear Panel Connector RPC D 5/24 for easy assembly of wooden drawers with strip grooved rear panels.

When it comes to connections, they’re not always permanent, nor do they need to be. With the Häfele Ixconnect Spreading Connector SC 8/60 large pieces of furniture can be assembled and disassembled as needed for transport.


The SC 8/60 is almost completely invisible once assembled leaving a clean look with this connection. It spreads out and pulls furniture parts together with a 180-degree turn using a hex key. Machining is a standard 8 mm bore, with no glue or clamps needed and a simple hex key allows you take apart or put together your project as needed. Panels can be as thin as 15 mm.

Working in concert with the SC 8/60 the Ixconnect Rear Panel Connect RPC S 15/25 screws in the rear panel from the front side with no drill hole required. The connector is used with standard 15 mm holes and serves as a mounting aid for the rear panel.

The Ixconnect Spreading Connector SC 8/25 is ideal for putting together small furniture and/or associated drawer boxes with no tools or glue. All you need is a few 8 mm holes to get started. Furniture is efficiently assembled with the SC 8/25 and won’t come apart. A definite must-have for any woodworking project with scale of production.
