New Spiral Pro-Fit Stud

New style spiral threadless Pro-Fit stud – just as easy to use, even more secure.

Our award-winning threadless stud system is used by a growing number of riders, from top professionals such as Geoff Billington, Andrew Heffernan and Tom Davison, to countless amateur competitors who have had enough of struggling with old-fashioned threaded studs.

We have just launched a new version of these revolutionary studs, which incorporates a recessed spiral groove on the stem of the stud. The threadless Pro-Fit stud holes are drilled in exactly the same way using the easy to use Pro-Fit Reamer Bit to leave a smooth, tapered, easy to clean stud hole with no threads that can be damaged and become difficult to use. The spiral Pro-Fit stud is then simply fitted into the stud hole in a similar way to the original Pro-Fit threadless stud, with a few bangs from the Pro-Fit hammer. Once inserted, the stud is then simply twisted with the Pro-Fit spanner for a quarter turn until you feel it tighten. This spiral groove lets you know exactly when the stud is fitted tightly and correctly and ensures that it stays in place each and every time it’s used.


This spiral is not a thread as the stud hole is still completely smooth meaning it’s really easy to clean. But whereas with threaded studs, not only are the threads easy to damage and difficult to clean, any little bits of dirt that remain in the threads can cause a screw stud to get looser as the horse walks and potentially fall out. With the design of our threadless Pro-Fit system, the action of the horse standing on the stud actually causes it to get tighter and even more secure. Yet despite this absolute security, the Pro-Fit spiral studs remain incredibly easy to remove, with a few twists of the Pro-Fit spanner.
