The ball tips and steeple tips from Emtek are ordered separately from the hinges. Ball and steeple tips, not to be confused with the Extended Button Tips, which are threaded, extended tips that attaches to the solid brass hinges so that the Emtek Hinge Pivot Stop can be used on the Emtek Solid Brass hinge. All Emtek Hinge tip sets are included with four tips and threaded pins for one pair of hinges.

And you can get the tips in Polished Brass, French Antique, Oil Rubbed Bronze, Satin Nickel, Pewter, Polished Chrome, Satin Chrome, Flat Black, Deep Burgundy, Medium Bronze, Rust, Silver, Patina and Satin Steel!
Omnia Door Hinge Finials are just like the steeple tips and ball tips, except there are a few more tip styles to choose from and will fit on any Omnia brand hinge (a little more simple to order than Emtek).
The Acorn, Ball, Crown, Steeple, and Urn Finials will fit any size Omnia hinge or either plain or ball bearing. These are threaded and will simply screw on to the ends of the hinge and you do not need to remove the hinge pin to attach.
