Nose Pad Buyers Guide for Glasses, Designer Eyewear, & Sunglasses
Screw-in Nose Pads
Screw-in nose pads are characterized by a protruding flange at the backside of the nose pad. At the end of this flange, which resembles a thin rectangular tab, is a small hole that completely goes through the flange.
The screw-in glasses pad mount consists of a wire stem that is attached to a housing that resembles a very small opened box-like structure. This structure contains a hole on each of two opposing sides of the box. Each hole extends all the way through each side of the box structure.
The nose pad insert back-side flange is placed within this box whereby a small nose pad screw enters one side of the box, goes through the hole of the nose pad, and then is screwed into place at the other end of the box structure. The nose pad is thus held securely into place.
