Hold-Down Action Clamps: The vertical clamps are identified bye their vertical handles.
These clamps are manufactured with a range of holding capacities of
up to 6,000 lbs. The hold-down bar (also called clamping bar) exhibits
a minimum 90° opening angle and can be solid or U
shaped. The base is straight (B version) or flange-mounted
Hold-Down Action Clamps:
The outstanding characteristic is the low height design. Unlike the
handle and the hold down bar of the vertical clamps, those of the
horizontal clamps move in opposite directions. These clamps are manufactured
with solid or U shaped hold-down bars and with various
mounting options. The holding capacities range up to 1,000 lbs.
These clamps are manufactured in a variety of models to accommodate
a wide range of load ratings (100 lbs. - 16,000 lbs.). The push/pull
handle is easy to operate and moves the plunger of the clamp in and
out along its axis. Almost all of these clamps can be locked in two
positions, allowing you to use them as either push or pull clamps.
Several base mounting options are available. Some models have threaded
bodies for thru-hole mounting.
The handle can be moved to place the clamping pull bar (hook) around
the opposing latch and pressed down to reach the locked position.
Holding capacities range up to 7,500 lbs., and threaded hook
or U-bolt type bars offer an adjustment feature.
The jaws are locked automatically when closing, as one or both handles
are squeezed against the central position. The jaws are drop-forged
in steel or aluminum; and most are supplied with 1 or 2 adjustable
