Model JPA - Turning, Lifting, Lock Open, Lock Closed

The Model JPA is a vertical lifting clamp capable of turning a single plate or member from horizontal, to vertical, to horizontal, through a 180 degree arc. Incorporates a push button auxiliary lock. Permits side loading of lifting shackle to 90 degrees by derating of clamp’s rated capacity.

Model JPA incorporates a pivoting shackle that allows side loading of the lifting shackle at 100 percent of rated capacity from vertical to 30 degrees, 75 percent of rated capacity between 30 and 45 degrees, and 50 percent of rated capacity between 45 and 90 degrees.

Model LJ - Vertical Lifting - Lock Closed

The Model LJ is a vertical lifting clamp capable of turning a plate from horizontal, to vertical, and back, through the same 90 degree arc. It is small and easy to handle in capacities through 3 tons.

The Model LJ incorporates a “Lock Closed” feature, which facilitates attaching the clamp to the plate even with your gloves on!

Model NMBL - Locking Type

The NMBL mode is used to turn plates from horizontal through a 180 degree arc. It is manufactured with smooth gripping surfaces to prevent marring when gripping stainless steel, copper, aluminum and other polished metal plates.

The NMBL incorporates a lock open-lock closed feature to facilitate attaching and removing the clamp from the plate.

Model AST & ASTL - Non-Locking

Both the Model AST and ASTL were developed primarily for lifting, turning and stacking lightweight beams and structural shapes, while a constant tension is applied to the lifting shackle. The horizontal shackle permits a beam to be lifted with the web in a near horizontal position by placing the clamp on the load with the shackle positioned over the web, and between the flanges.

With a beam lying in a horizontal position, and the clamp placed with the shackle overhanging the flange, the beam can be lifted, turned 90 degrees, and raised in a vertical position.

The Model ASTL includes all of the features of the Model AST, plus a linkage that permits the tool to be removed remotely by setting the load down with the sling slack, then lifting the crane hook.

Model BC Screw Adjusting Beam Clamp

The Model BC is a multipurpose beam clamp suitable for lifting beams, or providing suspension of hoists from beams or girders, thereby eliminating need for nuts, bolts and shackles.

The Model BC clamp is intended for use on the American standard or wide flange beams.

Model TL & TLA - Turning, Lifting, Lock Open, Lock Closed

The Model TLA is a vertical lifting clamp incorporating a “Lock Open” and a “Lock Closed” feature, and an auxiliary lock. The clamp is capable of turning a steel plate from horizontal, to vertical, to horizontal, through a 180-degree arc. The “Lock Open,” “Lock Closed” feature facilitates attaching and removing the clamp from the plate.

The Model TL is identical to the Model TLA, except that it does not contain the auxiliary lock. The Model TL is capable of turning a plate from horizontal, to vertical, and back through the same 90-degree arc.

Model SCP & SCPA Locking Screw

The Model SCP and Model SCPA clamps are capable of handling steel plate from the horizontal through a 180-degree arc, and may be used for handling plate at rolling and forming machines. These clamps feature a spring loaded pivoting cam jaw that “cams in” when a load is applied to the lifting shackle.

Clamp is capable of handling plate horizontally when used in pairs or sets of pairs, or in a tripod arrangement. Pivoting Shackle Assembly available on SCPA models 3 tons and larger.

Model-SCP-&-SCPA
Model M - Locking

The Model M is a multipurpose clamp used for positioning, sorting, erection and handling of prefabricated sections. The split lower jaw enables the clamp to be particularly useful in handling structural shapes. The Model M incorporates a “Locked Closed” feature which facilitates attaching the clamp to the member being lifted.

These clamps must be used in pairs, sets of pairs, or in a tripod arrangement for transporting plate horizontally.
Handles are available in the 8 ton model only.
