Snap-in speaker grill pegs are commonly used by speaker manufacturers to securely attach the grill and frame to a speaker cabinet. Fitting these to a grill and speaker otherwise not equipped with these fasteners is not a complex task, and makes a grill attach in a flush, attractive manner. Using simple tools and fasteners available at electronics outlets and home improvement stores allows the speaker grill installation to proceed in a clean and professional-looking manner.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Measure the distances from the edge of the speaker cabinet and grill to ensure the two will line up accurately when attached. Mark these locations with a pencil.

  2. 2

    Drill 1/2 inch deep into the speaker cabinet at the marked locations, using the drill and 9/16-inch Forstner bit. Blow out residual sawdust.

  3. 3

    Apply a thin layer of adhesive to the ribbed peg and inside the bored hole on the cabinet. Insert the sockets into the holes, tapping lightly with a hammer if needed.

  4. 4

    Repeat the process to install the pegs into the marked locations on the grills, using the 7/16-inch bit. Use caution when tapping in the pegs to avoid bending the neck of the peg.

  5. 5

    Allow the adhesive to dry on the cabinets and grills. Press the two components together to mate the grill to the speaker.
