In this study, it has been searched that the strength performances of montable fasteners which are made up from particleboard, fiberboard and particleboard surfaced with synthetic resin sheet used for case furniture joints. 10 specimens were prepared for each material, load type and fasteners, and a total of 300 specimens were tested under withdrawal, diagonal tensile and diagonal compression loads. As a result, in the diagonl tension and the diagonal compression tests the processed fiberboard with plastic minifix fastener and in the withdrawal tests the processed fiberboard with metal minifix fastener have given the best result, particleboard with metal minifix fastener and the processed particleboard with plastic minifix have given the worst result.
