Pillar brass nipples come in three distinct models:

forged brass - available in 14g (2.0mm)
finish - black or silver
lengths - 12mm, 14mm or 16mm
box quanties - 40, 100 or 500

HEX TaperGrip locking
forged & machined BRASS 14g (2.0mm)
finish - black or silver 
length - 14.4mm
Taper Grip Nipples are designed to attain maximum grip without the use of adhesives. The TG nipple will lock itself to the spoke threads as the tension is increased and due to its unique design, will not come loose during it's use.

SQUARE drive (DSN)
forged & machined BRASS 14g (2.0mm)
finish - black or silver 
length - 14.4mm
Square drive (or DSN) nipples have a square interface on the end of the nipple that normally would have a driver slot, or a hex. This raised square interface allows for very fine tuning of the spoke tension. Building a better wheel.


Many Pillar nipples are also available with Pillar's new AB-Lock compound.


AB-Lock is a process where a dual compound, adhesive liquid is injected into the nipple thread during manufacture, this compound then dries and remains dormant until a spoke is threaded through the compound.

By threading the nipple onto the spoke the adhesive is activated and begins to cure.
(it is recommended that wheels using AB-Lock be built in "one sitting" and not "finished" the following day).

However, re-truing the wheel is still possible even after the adhesive has cured completely, with only a minimal percentage decrease of its thread holding capability.
