Glossary - Ball Plunger (Spring Plunger)

Ball Plungers Ball Plungers A device incorporating a housing (body) and a spring loaded ball or pin. They are used for securing an item in a closed position, whilst requiring a certain force to be applied to allow the item to be opened. The ball seats into a notch in an adjoining part, until such time as sufficient pressure is applied to enable the ball to retract into the housing, thereby allowing the part being pushed to move freely from it’s closed position. (see pictures).

Ball plungers can be found here in the Small Parts and Bearings online catalogue.
