Abstract (en)

Height-adjustable leg (1) such as for supporting a table top. The leg comprises two telescopically slidable leg portions (2, 3). A knob housing (5) is fixed on the inner surface (4) of the outer leg portion (2), said housing having a knob (6) therein which is pressed into an aperture (10) in the outer leg portion by a spring (9), in such a way that the outer surfaces (11, 12) of the knob and the leg portion (2) coincide. The knob (6) bears a pin (7) having a larger head being located outside the knob housing (5) and being pressed against the knob housing (5) by said spring (9). The head can be located in recesses (16) arranged in the edges (15) of a slot (14) extending in a partition (13) in the inner leg portion (3). When pushing the knob (6), the head (8) will end up beyond the recesses (16) and the leg portions can be slid in relation to each other. <IMAGE>
