TOGGLE CLAMPS!

Written by Brian Steeves on . Posted in Compression Latches, Latches

Toggle Clamp

Toggle Clamps (or Fixture Clamps) are used widely in jigs which are used to hold components in place for welding, gluing or finishing.  There are toggle clamps for any type of “holding” you might need to accomplish.

The clamp shown here (GG.AA070) is one of the smaller sized clamps, and it’s designed to hold an object down with as much as 1450N (325 lbs) of force! The larger version of this toggle clamp has a holding force of up to 8000N (1800 lbs).  Toggle clamps are designed for easy, trouble-free operation no matter the size of the latch or the holding force required.

Many toggle clamps require a clamping bolt (sold separately).  The bolt can be installed anywhere along the working arm of the latch.  Different types of bolts are available too.Clamping Bolts

Most of our toggle clamps are available in steel or stainless, but some are available in cast materials, for those applications that require extreme strength.

If you need more information about our Toggle Clamps, call us today or use our handy Contact Form to reach us!  We’re here to help.

New Product Announcement

New Cam Latch Prevents Accidental Opening and Keeps Dust Out

Southco’s new E5 Cam Latch features a drop bushing driver that provides additional security by preventing the cam from rotating open in high vibration applications. In the event that the latch is not entirely closed, the bushing remains in the depressed position, providing a visual indication that the latch is unsecured. With its flush, low profile design, the E5 Shutter Cam Latch provides a clean appearance, minimizing dust and debris collection that may affect operation.
  • Vibration resistant design prevents accidental opening
  • Covered bushing minimizes dust and debris collection
  • Flush, low profile design for minimal protrusion and aesthetics
  • Meets NEMA 4/IP65 and EN61373 standards
