Stud leveling feet offer a simple and effective leveling solution for machinery, appliances, furniture and other freestanding objects. Like all leveling feet, they consist of height-adjustable pads. You can place a set of stud leveling feet on the bottom of an object. You can then adjust the height of the stud leveling feet so that the object is level.
There are other types of leveling feet available, such as tapped. Tapped leveling feet are used for the same purpose of leveling objects. Rather than a threaded stud, though, they feature a threaded hole. Stud leveling feet feature a threaded stud, whereas tapped leveling feet feature a threaded hole. If you’re going to buy a set of stud leveling feet, you’ll need to know how to use them.
Insert at the Bottom of the Object
Stud leveling feet are easy to use. Start by inserting them at the bottom of the object with which you want to use them.
As previously mentioned, stud leveling feet feature a threaded stud. The threaded stud is essentially a bolt. As long as the object has threaded holes of the same size, it should support the stud leveling feet. To use stud leveling feet, place them inside of the threaded holes on the bottom of the object and turn them.
Adjust the Height
Now you can adjust the height. All stud leveling feet are adjustable. You can make them taller or shorter. You’ll need to adjust the height of the stud leveling feet to make the object level. If the object tilts to the right side, for instance, you may need to raise the stud leveling feet on the right side or lower the stud leveling feet on the left side.
Turning stud leveling feet clockwise will make them shorter, whereas turning stud leveling feet counterclockwise will make them longer. Go through each of the installed stud leveling feet while adjusting their height. Remember, you want the object to be level. If it’s not level, you’ll need to adjust the height of some or all of the stud leveling feet.
Check to Ensure Object Is Level
When you are finished installing the stud leveling feet, you may want to check to ensure the object is level. Place a bubble level or laser level on top of the object. If it’s level, you won’t need to make any further adjustments to the stud leveling feet. The stud leveling feet will keep the object level.
