How Does Threadless Jewellery Work?
While internally threaded titanium is always a better choice over externally threaded jewellery, it is important to regularly check that your attachments are screwed on tightly to prevent them falling off and your piercing falling out!
Threadless jewellery has a pin in lieu of a threaded screw attachment, which is slightly bent before being pushed into a hollow post. The bend creates a locking mechanism, keeping the attachment secure without having to check the tightness of the thread.
That being said, a quick squeeze with a clean thumb and forefinger every now and then will ensure it’s always pushed all the way in!
