The 6 foot HPDE folding rectangular table is the easiest center-folding table to set up and move around, and it is the model with an exterior locking feature, which means it won’t pop open during transport. The wishbone-shaped legs make it sturdier than other tables jiggled, and it didn’t wobble, flip, or bow under 200 pounds of weight. The tabletop was the most resilient to scratches, and it also fended off heat and stains well. It did dent from our rubber mallet, but the texture hid the dents well. It also had a stronger, more ergonomic handle than the other tables we carried.
The 6’ rectangular folding table is quick, easy table to set up and break down. Most other center-folding models lock the tabletop shut with clamps inside so you need to use a lot of force to open it. This is annoying regardless of your strength. Our 6’ folding table takes a different approach by using an exterior latch to lock the two halves shut. Unhook the latch, and the table pops open. Thanks to this design, one person of reasonable strength can set up the table in around 30 seconds. It is also one of only two tables we tried with a center latch underneath the tabletop that automatically locks it open during setup. Once you flip it upright, two gravity lock rings automatically drop down to hold the leg hinges in place.
The 6’ rectangular folding table is the sturdiest center-folding option we tested—it doesn’t wobble, and you can bump into it with reasonable force without knocking over cups. Its wide-set, curved legs create a stronger foundation than the tables with narrower legs do. Plus, durable plastic cups on the ends of the legs ensure that you won’t end up with scratched hardwood floors.
When we threw keys and utensils on top of the 6ft folding table, the white, textured tabletop hid the scratches better than tables with black tops. A rubber mallet was able to make a few small dents in the plastic, which was true of every model we tested, but the texture of the tabletop did a great job of hiding those blemishes.
The durable handle on the 6ft folding table is the best one we carried. Its stronger plastic handle felt more ergonomic, allowing for a firm grip, and connects to the table with a thick strap. This is also the only model that allows you to hide the handle which is a small detail but something we really appreciated.
