DE-STA-CO’s Horizontal Handle Hold-Down Action Clamps represent the next generation of manual toggle clamps. The new clamps allow users to save space without compromises in holding capacity or performance. The 2013, 2017, 2027 and 2037 series of Horizontal Handle Hold-Down Action Clamps deliver two to three times the holding capacity of DE-STA-CO’s legacy models in the same envelope. A knob on the end of the open ‘U’ bar of the new clamps prevents spindle slippage. Additionally, the unique patented design provides increased hand clearance in the open position, improving ergonomics and safety by eliminating pinch points. Clamps in the 2013, 2017, 2027, 2037 series come with an ergonomic handle grip, two flanged washers and spindle assembly, and straight base options are available. Maximum holding capacity of the clamps range from 150 lbs. to 2400 lbs., ensuring applicability across a wide range of operational demands. Additionally, the low pivot points featured on the Horizontal Handle Hold-Down Action Clamps provide for a perpendicular clamp force. The straight downward action helps to prevent movement of the workpiece in the fixture. Moreover, further solutions are available through the newest generation of DE-STA-CO Toggle-Lock Plus™ manual clamps, an expansion to the horizontal toggle clamp series also designed with maximum safety and ergonomic benefit as its foundation.
