Ball Studs and Receivers
Threaded Ball Studs and Ball Stud Receivers for Repeated Disengagement up to 65 Pounds
Threaded Ball Stud Fasteners were originally developed as spring steel catch fasteners on aircraft access doors, inspection panels, sealing strips and other similar assemblies requiring repeated disengagement.
The versatility of threaded ball studs and spring steel fasteners soon found them used extensively in other fields where they secured kitchen cabinet doors, removable toe plates, electronic cabinets, protective covers, etc.
There is no direct contact between the ball studs and panel surfaces. This eliminates wear or chipping of painted or porcelain surfaces that would otherwise resulting in corrosion. When latched, the spring legs of the clip continually bear inward on the spherical or serrated studs, holding latched unit snug against the panel.
Where adjustability or wide latching ranges are required, the serrated stud is used. Serrated studs are mainly used for attaching compressionable materials such as rubber, fabric insulation, etc.
Pull-out tensions, depending on the material thickness of the threaded Ball Stud Speed Clip and the stud used, can be provided from 3.5 pounds to 50-65 pounds. Various panel thicknesses are accommodated by varying the ball stud lengths.
