Is there a Kwik-link smaller than the usual 2-56 size?

I'd like to find a clevis that looks like a Kwik-link, but is smaller. Maybe a 1-72 or 1-80 size, or a metric one that is smaller than 2-56, if there is such a thing?

I've got the little plastic clevises that snap on to a right-angle-bend in the wire, but they cannot adjust. And I've seen some nylon ones that don't have an integral pin - their pin is a separate wire that must be held with a rubber band.

Anyone know if there is a simple clevis that's one piece like a Kwik-link, adjusts by rotating on its shaft like a Kwik-link, but is smaller, and fits on a smaller threaded shaft?

I bought the smallest link that I could find at HobbyKing and I epoxy the rod in, usually carbonfiber. I set one already epoxied end on the control horn and then 5 min epoxy the other and adjust the control surface as it sets.

Thanks, but no. That's the clevis wih the removeable (and lose-able) pin I mentioned. And they thread on to the same 2-56 stud the rest do. They just come with a 2-56 stud that has a teeny hole in the end and so can be put on a skinnier wire.



I presently use those studs-with-teeny-hole, with regular steel 2-56 Kwik Links, and solder the stud onto a skinnier wire. They're better than nothing.

But I wish I could find an actual SMALL Kwik-link.
