Externally threaded post ends (threads are on the outside ends of the post).
Cleaning: avoid using abrasive cleaners. Use antibacterial soap on the jewelry and remove exudate or debris accumulated from your piercing on a routine basis. Pat or air dry with disposable paper product. Chemical cleaners will strip the color of the steel blue cones.
Be sure to tighten cone ends daily to ensure secure fit.
These spirals are often worn in what is known in the piercing industry as "Project Piercings". The particular application for this spiral might include cartilage projects whereby several piercings along the scaffold (outer edges) of the ear are made. The Spiral is threaded through the piercings and around the outer edge of the scaffold.
