Long slender object curves at a 90 degree angle beginning 2 cm. below the ball head. The ball head has a ridge along the equator. The object has a solid cylindrical shaft that terminates in a broken point. The shaft is flattened and broadened between the 2nd and 4th cm. below the ball head to support a bore.
