Material — aluminum. The length of the tip is 8 mm, the diameter of the tip is 4 mm, the total length is 17 mm, the diameter of the middle part (on which the strap is put on) is 5 mm.

Price for 1 peg.

How to install the peg in the cover?

The pegs were installed nip and tuck into the bakelite caps, and were fixed by a blow to the center of the peg (with a pointed metal “finger” like a nail). From the blow, the peg expanded and fixed itself. It should be understood that the impact force was calculated and tested in advance before the production of caps. But when you work with a single cap, you have no trial attempts and can split the cap. Therefore, we recommend fixing the peg with epoxy resin (epoxy glue) — this is reliable, safe method and it will give 100% tightness to the cap.

Caps from our "Replika" shop, pegs are inserted but not fastened. All pegs has the same sizes of the top half but different tip lenght.
