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 form-closedly.
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.
