Got a medium weight chain or beaded necklace that needs an extra-secure clasp? Try our 14Kt yellow gold filled oval 8.2mm trigger lobster clasp.
Like Spring Rings, Lobster Clasps are held closed by a spring. Unlike Spring Rings, the closure is a strong pincer-like 'lobster claw' that opens with a small trigger lever, and closes shut on a jump ring or flat pierced tab. Lobster clasps are often used for medium-to-heavy chains and beading lines, for heavier necklaces, bracelets, and keychains. Their claw mechanism can be shaped as a square, oval, teardrop, or other form, depending on the desired use and aesthetics.
Open jump ring provided for easier attachment to chains and loops. For even stronger joins we recommend a 14Kt gold filled split ring or a sturdy wire-wrapped connector instead of an open jump ring.
Jump ring size is 3.8mm, 20gauge.
Clasp Length without Jump ring: 8.2mm
Total Clasp Length: 10.3mm
Clasp width: 5.4mm
Stamped 14K 1/20.
