This stainless steel lobster clasp includes easy-to-use 2.1mm end caps that provide a crisp, professional look to your cord and fiber necklace and bracelet designs. Use jeweler's epoxy to secure cord into each end cap. The 3mm curb chain 2" extender has a teardrop accent and allows the customer to adjust the length of the necklace. One of the most common clasp styles, the lobster clasp offers a streamlined look and good security for all types of strands. Named for its resemblance to the action of a lobster claw, this clasp features a hook shape with a spring-operated closure. Simply press the ring at the opposite end of the strand against the closure, pushing it open enough to let the ring pass onto the hook (or press the release lever to open the closure). The spring holds the clasp closed until the lever pulls it open to release the ring.
Steel grade: 304
