  • Ball/Socket small parts

    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.
