Can someone show me a close up photo of the underside of the insert, showing the catches/latches that keep the insert from falling out?

After watching the machine lady video that Jim shared, I noted the insert wasn't falling out of the featured, folded up FW card table. I always wondered about that with mine.

Anyway, sewing today on the 301, in the table, switched to the Pfaff for a few buttonholes, and took a look at my insert. No catches. No matching grain. Uh oh. Not even a perfect fit. (Tho it does fit well.) It's homemade!

So, I need to know about those catches, cause someday I might want to tote it around with the insert in place.

I’m not sure if they’re all the same, but my 1959 Singer Model 316 "Monterey” Utility Table that accommodates a 301 or the 400 slant-needle machines has two small tabs that insert into notches on one end, and a spring-steel clip attached to the opposite end that resembles the old cupboard door closures.  The bar that my clip goes against has had the mounting screws replaced with common stove bolts.

^^^^ Exactly.  That is how mine is too.  You insert the two tabs into slots on one end and it has a pressure spring clip on the other to hold it in place.

Thank you. That is a huge help.
Would you say the veneer is a maple? In case I want to make a new insert...
