Q & A

What's in the Box

These rod ends are used when you need to combine different sized rod shank and through hole. These ends offer greater strength than our "standard" rod ends.

ASSEMBLY TIP:
To ease assembly, be sure to run a tap or die through the threads on chrome plated fasteners and apply an anti-seize compound to prevent galling of the threads.
