Male Ball Studs

Ball Studs are used extensively in assemblies that require repeated disengagement. Ball studs are employed in furniture applications, panel fastenings and even in dog collars. When used in panel fastenings there is typically a female socket joint or receptacle that accepts the ball stud when pushed into place. Since there is no direct contact between the ball stud and the panel surface, wear is eliminated. Male ball studs have external threading. Typically, ball studs have a 3/16" diameter head, a 1/4" hexagonal base and 6-32 threads. Apex Fasteners can also provide ball studs sized to meet your particular requirements. Please see Ball Stud Receptacles for more details about this important matching component.
