The new LOCATOR® Bar Attachment System contains the same self-aligning feature, superb retention, long lasting durability, and low attachment profile that you currently enjoy with our top selling LOCATOR® Attachments. Now these benefits are available for your immediate use when the splinting of implants is required with a bar for added stability.
You have three (3) LOCATOR® Attachment choices:
For total retrievability you can simply drill, tap, and thread the new LOCATOR® Bar Female into your completed implant bar. The 1.7mm Bar Drill and a 2.0mm Bar Tap are used for creating the threaded site into either a titanium bar or cast alloy bar. The LOCATOR® Gold-Plated Abutment Driver included as part of the 3 piece LOCATOR® Core Tool is designed to engagethe inside diameter of the threaded LOCATOR® Bar Female and thread it into place. Atorque wrench may also be used to achieve the minimum recommended 20Ncm of torque tightening.
New Cases 2.0mm Thread: (#8589-2) LOCATOR® Bar Female (2 Pack), (#9102) 1.7mm Bar Drill, (#9104) 2.0mm Bar Tap, (#8014) Threaded 2.0mm Castable Sleeve (10 pack), and new #8016 Drill and Tap Holder
LOCATOR® Bar Females are also available in a special thread size to replace worn out TSB Ball Attachments. The only requirement is a minimum bar width of 4mm to upgrade to a LOCATOR.
Replacement Cases 2-56 Thread: (#8587-2) LOCATOR® Bar Female (2 Pack), (#9103) 1.8mm Bar Drill, (#9105) 2-56 Bar Tap
Now you can laser weld the new titanium LOCATOR® Laser Bar Female to a milled titanium bar, or the stainless steel female to a cast alloy bar. Use the LOCATOR® Paralleling Mandrel in a surveyor to position the appropriate LOCATOR® Laser Bar Female and then just weld it into place. Uniformity within the various LOCATOR® Attachment Systems keeps all parts universal. Your existing denture components and tools already on hand can be used as connections for the new LOCATOR® Bar Females.

Cast Alloy Bar: (#4008590-2) LOCATOR® Laser Bar Female, Stainless Steel (2 Pack), (#9107) LOCATOR® Paralleling Mandrel for Bar Female
The newly designed LOCATOR® Cast-To Bar Female (316L Stainless Steel) is positioned by using the LOCATOR® Paralleling Mandrel in a surveyor and then waxed into the bar. The precision machine finish of the attachment is maintained by casting the gold alloy to the LOCATOR® Cast-To Bar Female.
Cast-To Bar Female: (#4008586-2) LOCATOR® Cast-To Bar Female (2 Pack), (#4009107) LOCATOR® Paralleling Mandrel for Bar Female
All 3 types of LOCATOR® Bar Females feature the patented self-aligning innovation that allows the attachment to act as a guide plane for accurate seating of the patient’s prosthesis. In combination with the low-profile (total attachment height of only 2.5mm—and 2.75mm for the laser attachment), the LOCATOR® Bar Attachment will provide you with the best possible attachment choice for implant retained bars.
