The metal external threads of the ball studs are metric or self‑tapping (in plastic). Other thread types can be provided on request.
The two-piece SNAPLOC® fastening system consists of a ball stud and a coupling for quick assembly and is based on the principle of a simple snap joint or plug-in joint.
A simple principle for complex requirements: push on to attach, pull off to detach.
Low vibration and noise levels. Vibrations are not transmitted from one component to the other.
Simple and economical. With just two parts – ball stud and coupling – SNAPLOC® simplifies production processes.
Greater freedom in construction and design. With the right fastening options for every application.
Completely unobtrusive. SNAPLOC® fasteners can be integrated into the component design.
One ball stud, one coupling – the simple principle behind the SNAPLOC® plug-in connection provides a perfect fit while decoupling any vibration. Inside the coupling a ball socket is formed, into which the ball stud can snap.
The coupling of the plug‑in connection is mounted on the underside of the component in the fitting provided and held in place with a form-fit. Depending on the design, the ball stud can be screwed, bonded or clipped onto the corresponding component. The pieces are connected easily by simply snapping them into place or pulling them apart.
