1.6mm Thread Converter/Connector for Changing 14g External Ends Into 6g, 8g or 10g Internally-Threaded Jewelry (Price Per 1)

These 3mm-long posts provide you with a way to connect two pieces of 14g internally-threaded body jewelry, and they can be used to convert any 14g externally-threaded end into internally-threaded jewelry. Screw this post into a 14g externally-threaded end to create internal jewelry that you can use with any 10g, 8g or 6g shaft or anchor with a matching internal 1.6mm thread pattern. (Note that this converter/connector post will not make a 14g externally-threaded ball into a ball that can be used with 14g internal jewelry. Our 14g jewelry has a 1.2mm thread pattern, not a 1.6mm thread pattern.)

These 1.6mm threaded posts are sold individually (price per 1) and separately from our body jewelry shafts, anchors and internal ends. Shop for straight barbells to connect with this piece, dermal anchors and other hardware in our Body Jewelry Parts section.
