Body of clamp is welded construction
Can be used to lift a plate from the horizontal to vertical position and vice versa through 180º
Clamp jaws and pads are manufactured from high-tensile steel
Fitted with a hold open and lock closed lever. To initiate the self actuating force, a spring is incorporated into the clamp to give an initial bite on the material. If the plate should start to slip during lifting, the cam shape of the jaw turns with the material and increases the gripping force.
The cam handle is ergonomically designed with a flat surface to allow for ease of operation while wearing>protective gloves
The cam handle connects to the cam via a robust hexagon drive
Unlike others, these plate clamps are designed with a sloping slot, which increases the grip on the load when the clamp is in the horizontal position
Design factor 4:1
