A series of round, U.S.-made, tapered interlocks is available in 60 standard configurations from Choice Mold Components, Clinton Township, Mich. They come in 10, 30, 50, and 100 taper angles with both male and female O.D. sizes from 3/8 in. to 2 in. and multiple dimensional options. Also offered is a range of sizes with a convenient counter-bore for optional front-loading installation. They are made from 52100 bearing steel and heat treated to 60-63 Rc hardness for long life. Both 2D and 3D CAD files are available online to view and download in every native software format.

To ensure alignment of the mold halves, these components are designed to locate on the taper and shoulder in order to guarantee a positive stop, unlike competing versions that stop just off the taper.
