Innovative Components, Inc. announces the introduction of a line of plastic clamping knobs that allow users to assemble their own knobs with the nut or bolt of their choice. The 2.25” diameter star shaped knobs are molded with a hex hole of the appropriate size to accept standard hex nuts, locknuts, hex bolts, and hex cap screws.

One Knob Fits Multiple Thread Sizes
Innovative Components, Inc. announces the introduction of a revolutionary line of ball knobs and shift knobs that utilize a patent-pending self-tapping & self-locking design. This innovation employs multiple interior holes that allow a single knob to mate with a variety of thread sizes. For instance, one common size will accept 5/16-18, 5/16-24, 3/8-16, 3/8-24, M8, & M10. This flexibility simplifies designs and consolidates part numbers. Its all-plastic design means it will never rust and the self-locking feature eliminates the need for any glue or adhesive. The knobs are available from stock in a wide variety of ball and teardrop styles and are molded from high-impact PP.
