Latch-Type Toggle Clamps From J.W. Winco Have Locking Feature

NEW BERLIN, Wisc. – J.W. Winco, Inc., a leading supplier of standard industrial machine components, announced it now offers series GN 853 (steel) and GN 853-NI (stainless steel) Latch-Type Toggle Clamps with Locking Mechanism, in metric sizes.

These RoHS-compliant latch clamps feature a locking mechanism that prevents the inadvertent or vibration-induced opening of the clamp. Another benefit of this design is the ability to operate the clamp with one hand. Two versions are offered: one without a tie-rod or latch bracket, allowing the easy and individual configuration of the locking mechanism, and one with a tie-rod and latch bracket.

The base, clamping lever and catch of the steel version are sheet metal, toughened steel C10 (European Standard No. 1.0301), while the tie-rod is steel St. 32, blackened. In the stainless steel version, the base, clamping lever, catch and tie-rod are European Standard No. 1.4301 (American Standard Series 304) stainless steel.  The handle sleeve is oil-resistant red solid molded plastic. All moving parts are lubricated with special grease.

J.W. Winco offers an extensive selection of inch and metric size adjustable levers, cabinet U-handles, plastic and steel hinges and locking mechanisms, revolving and retractable handles, hand wheels, hand cranks, tube connection and conveyor components, inch and metric construction tubing, shock absorption mounts, leveling mounts, hand knobs, spring, ball and indexing plungers, jig, fixture and fastening components, retaining magnet assemblies, toggle clamps, metric casters and wheels, universal joints, oil sight glasses, and metric tools for the industrial and commercial equipment industries.
