2" aluminum screw posts are great for binding large books. These sturdy aluminum posts are available in a wide variety of sizes and can be extended almost indefinitely.
If you want extra security for your large books, a drop of LOK-TITE will keep the screws from loosening under heavy use. If you need a permanent binding, a drop of super glue will make the assembly permanent. Be very certain that you want to do this before you assemble your book, since it will be impossible to unscrew the posts once the glue sets.
We sell screws and posts together so that you you don't have to worry about matching the correct parts.
