T-loc to attach?
« on: October 30, 2017, 12:09 AM »
I feel like I'm missing something.

I have two T-Loc systainers and I'm trying to attach them to each other. I spin the little thingy at the front and they lock together, but as soon as I try to pick it up...well, it doesn't hold, the back picks right up off the bottom one and they obviously come apart. The same thing happens when I rotate the T-Loc and open the bottom one (the top slides back just slightly, and eventually off the bottom one unless I'm very careful)

What am I doing wrong, or is that just a flaw in this system?

Sounds like the backs are not locked together correctly

When stacking put down the upper one onto the lower ~1cm off to the front (of the lower), then push it back to have the back hooks attach into the handle hole of the lower ones lid.

You'll notice that you'll have an even seam between the two systainers then, when they're not correctly aligned the seam is bigger at the back (as the back feet with the hooks are sitting ontop the lower systainer, instead of inside it).

Ya just place the Systainers on top of each other and lift the front of the top Systainer slightly. The rear of the top Systainer should move towards the the rear of the bottom Systainer and engage the French cleat system. Turn the latch and you’re done. It’s just a matter of getting a feel for the way it works.

Thanks! I knew it had to be something stupid. I was setting the french cleat-y thing on top of the back instead of hooking it under. Works great now
