How to fit Threadless/ Push-fit Jewellery

Push-fit jewellery, a threadless system, is a popular alternative to threaded jewellery. While this type of jewellery can be worn through numerous piercings (lips, nostril piercings, earlobes, eyebrows, and ear cartilage), buying push-fit jewellery will require a little knowledge. You want to ensure you get pieces that fit together properly and that the jewellery is properly sized for your piercing.

A complete piece of push-fit jewellery is made up of two individual pieces that fit together: a post and a removable end.

All of the stones in our push-fit ends are set—not glued. This means the stones will not fall out, as they may with less expensive pieces of jewellery. We sell only the finest quality jewellery, and we will stand by what we sell.

When buying push-fit jewellery from Wildcat Ink, each part is sold individually. If you need a complete piece of jewellery, you will need to purchase both a post and an end. This also means that you can purchase additional ends without the necessity to purchase additional posts every time.

How Push-fit Jewellery Works.

Push-fit ends have a small “pin” that sticks out of the decorative end and fits inside the shaft of the hollow titanium push-fit posts. The two pieces stays together by tension; a slight bend is made to the pin which allows it to stay securely in place inside the hollow post.

It’s important to know the material of the pin because gold pins are much softer and more fragile than steel or titanium pins, and requires you to be a bit more careful when inserting or removing them.

You can use the post to achieve the right fit. Insert the pin about a third to half the way into the post then apply gentle pressure down on the end to ever so slightly bend the pin. You can always bend the pin some more later, so don’t overdo it. Insert the end all the way and check the security of the fit. Once you’ve got the piece in double check it to make sure it’s secure and won’t come out without a bit of effort.

To remove the end.

Grasp the end with a thumb and forefinger as well as holding the opposite end of the post which is usually the disc or the flat back with your thumb and forefinger, then you can pull apart with equal pressure. If this doesn’t work for you, you can use leverage to apply pressure against your own thumbs. This pressure gives all you a lot more strength and makes the end much easier to remove in areas like the nose where it is often difficult to grab the inside portion.
