Ø1/2" Post Holders
Thorlabs’ Post Holders are designed with a wide, square relief cut that provides a
highly stable two line contact for the mating post. A spring-loaded plunger within
the brass thumbscrew holds the steel post firmly within the post holder prior to
final tightening. This allows one-handed positioning of post-mounted devices.

These stainless steel posts are precision ground to Ø0.499" diameter. One end has a
1/4"-20 (M6) tapped hole; the other end has a removable #8-32 (M4) threaded stud.
All Thorlabs mounting bases are machined with bottom relief cuts that ensure
stable mounting. Bases are attached to post holders via socket cap screws
that fit within a bottom-located counterbored clearance hole. All bases are
compatible with either imperial or metric tables, posts, and post holders.
