DIN 71802 Angled Ball Joint, Rivet Ball Shank
These angled ball joints consist of a ball socket DIN 71805 and a ball shank DIN 71803.
The angle of rotation for the type with safety catch BS, is 15 degrees, those without safety catch B, is 18 degrees.
For assembly the ball is pushed through the circlip which acts as a retainer. Should the retaining force (see pull-off force in the attached pdf table) between ball and socket not be sufficient, this can be increased by adding a safety catch, which can easily be fitted.
The hexagon nut is part of the angled ball joints.
To protect the angled ball point, a dust cap GN710 can be added.
