Frequently Asked Questions
  • Can I just buy 1/4-inch dowels from my local hardware store?

    Yes, but just as a 2 x 4 is not exactly 2 inches by 4 inches, dowels from the hardware store may not be exactly 1/4 inch. You may need to shim store-bought dowels with a little piece of masking tape. KidWind's 1/4-inch dowels will always work with their hubs.

  • Are the wood dowels sustainable?

    Yes. KidWind's dowel supplier is Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified.
