Self-retaining ball plungers eliminate machining step
- Published: March 16, 2017
Easily and securely installed by hand in an ordinary drill hole, self-retaining ball plungers from Carr Lane Mfg. Co. have a flexible design, and compensate for hole tolerances up to .008 in.
The slotted end of the thermoplastic body expands to compensate in an oversize hole. The sturdy shoulder of the press-fit ball plunger provides a fixed seating position and positively resists detent force.
Available in four sizes, the plungers can be installed in a plain hole, with the shoulder exposed, or slightly counterbored for flush installation.
