Antique Brass, Back Post, Solid Iron
The B1414 back posts are used on on feet and studs. These are 'compression-fit' meaning they must be hammered together. We make these compression fit as they are nearly IMPOSSIBLE to separate once set. We do not make the screw-in version because these often have quality issues and fall off over time.

How to Choose the Correct Back Post B1414
We recommend 3/16" (4.6mm) of post to come through the other side of material, and a minimum of 1/8 inch (3mm). For example: If the thickness of the material you will be attaching the post to is 1/8” thick, then we recommend the B-1414 5/16". (minimum required to go in the hole 3/16" plus thickness of material 1/8"(2/16") = 5/16"). Please remember to take into consideration the material being used. Some material will be very firm like wood and will remain the same thickness when the item is attached. Other materials like leather or foam will compress once it is assembled. You should be using the compressed material “thickness” to determine the size of the B-1414 you will need.
