Ball knobs can be used to simply grip an appliance or provide ergonomic clamping pressure in a variety of ways. Ball knobs are commonly found on machine tools, jigs, fixtures, and control levers, or used as replacement parts to have on hand.
Our ball knobs come in a variety of shapes and materials from leading suppliers of industrial knobs, including DimcoGray, Elesa, and Kipp.
Shop for ball knobs online or in our digital catalog to ensure you get the exact part you’re after.
Sometimes referred to as fluted knobs, lobed knobs with 10 lobes bridge a valuable gap between lobed knobs and knurled knobs by bringing wider grips than a typical knurled knob, while increasing the number of lobes over much wider gaps in knobs with fewer lobes.
They are ideal in setups where a "soft" grip is desired for hand cranking on equipment or workpieces.

Concave push-pull knobs feature tapered shanks and an enlarged head to provide good finger clearance and an excellent grasp for pulling or lifting across a variety of specific shapes.
The concave top is more comfortable in applications that use a thumb push operation. The convex top has a smooth shape and fits comfortably into the operator’s palm for an easy grip.
We carry a large supply of push-pull knobs by manufacturers like Kipp and DimcoGray for use in all types of industrial and manufacturing applications in both inch and metric dimensions.

Wing knobs are designed to give good leverage with minimal grip strength, making them ideal for applications that require frequent tightening and loosening, or in more precision applications.
These knobs do not require tools and can be easily adjusted using only a thumb and forefinger, similar to thumb screw knobs, but with an added arm.
We carry wing knobs in a wide variety of thread sizes from 1-inch wing knobs to 3-inch wing knobs, ensuring you'll find exactly what you need by the manufacturer you trust.
