View Full Version : Ball/Socket small parts

01-11-2007, 08:28 AM
Dear Listers,

We have an application where we need to mount an accelerometer on a
small surface that can be tilted to different orientations. Ideally, it
would be nice to use a little ball and socket joint of the type your
might see in a plastic toy - small, lightweight, with sufficient
friction to maintain the orientation without an external screw etc. One
example is the ball and socket joint used in the holder of desk/pen

We've actually found something like this on the Lego website, but it is
not quite what we need. Would anyone have any other suggestions? We've
checked out Small Parts Company as well as as Reid Parts.

Thanks in advance for any information.
