It incorporates a push button auxiliary lock. The “Lock Open – Lock Closed” feature facilitates attaching and removing the clamp from the plate.
In addition to the benefits of the Model LA, the Model LPA incorporates a pivoting shackle that permits side loading of the lifting shackle at 100% of rated capacity from vertical to 30º, 75% of rated capacity between 30º and 45º, and 50% of rated capacity between 45º and 90º.
The LHC Model is a horizontal lifting clamp intended to be used in pairs, sets of pairs or in a tripod arrangement for transporting steel plates horizontally. The clamp is designed to lift individual sheets horizontally. Cam operations ensure a tight grip on the load. Serrated gripping cam bites into load for positive grip. Clamps rest in position on edge of plate until tension is applied to the load sling. Clamps must be used in single pairs (2), double pairs (4), or tripod (3) configuration with a lifting sling.
