The IPU10/A vertical lifting clamp is used in the same manner as the ever-popular IPU10 lifting clamp, with one major difference. This series of clamp features an automatic locking feature, meaning it "clicks" onto the material as soon as the clamp is placed on the plate. That means that when you're rigging in hard to reach places, you no longer have to manually set the latch. This eliminates the need for dangerous reaches on precarious ladders, and other such scenarios. The IPU10/A is suitable for the lifting, turning, moving or vertical transfer of sheet, plates, or fabrications from horizontal to vertical and down to horizontal (180º) as needed. The hinged hoisting eye allows for the clamp to place and lift the load from any direction, or with a multiple leg sling without damaging the clamp.
