Clamping and tension levers are used to extend the leverage on a nut or handle, in order to provide greater torque and control. They allow a greater degree of hand tightening than would normally be possible. Handles can be straight or angled, to allow an easier grip and clear any obstructions, and may be finished with a ball knob. The bore may be threaded or plain.
Clamp nuts are used for a wide range of work holding applications, and are quick and easy to use, increasing efficiency, in particular those variants with a double lever.
Adjustable hand levers, also known as clamping handles, are a quick and easy to use clamping component. The operator simply lifts the lever, rotates it to the required location and releases. These cleverly designed levers have a serrated insert which disengages when lifted and re-engages when released, giving the operator complete control and allowing easy, accurate positioning, ideal when precise positioning is required. They are particularly useful where space is tight, and there is a choice of angled or straight handles which also helps in cases of limited access.
We stock a wide range of these useful levers, in a range of materials including zinc diecast, stainless steel and reinforced plastic, We offer push button variants, options which push to engage and heavy duty options
Control levers work on the same principle as adjustable levers, but the internal parts are fixed and do not ratchet. Tommy nuts and screws allow extremely precise control when tightening and are available with either fixed or movable bar. Turret levers are useful when fast rotation is needed and they are commonly seen on mobile shelving and roller racking, where they contribute to the easy movement of the shelves.
