The fastening system for quick installation

The two-piece SNAPLOC® fastening system consists of a ball stud and a coupling for quick installation and is based on the principle of a simple snap connection.



Since plug-in connections only consist of two component parts, they are easy to assemble and detach.

SNAPLOC® joints can be integrated into the design of the corresponding components.


SNAPLOC® plug-in connections consist of a ball stud and a coupling. Inside the coupling there is a ball socket the ball stud can snap into.
The coupling is mounted to the bottom of the corresponding components into the provided frame and held there closed formed.
The ball stud can be screwed, adhered or clipped onto the corresponding components.

Joining by plugging in and removing by pulling ensure an ideal fit.
