DESTACO Vertical Hold-Down Clamps are identified by their vertical handles. These clamps are manufactured with holding capacities of up to 5,000lbf [22,25kN]. The hold-down bar (also called clamping bar) exhibits a minimum 90° opening angle for easy loading and unloading, and can be solid or “U” shaped. The base is straight ("B" version) or flange-mounted (standard version).
Several vertical hold-down clamps are also available in stainless steel. Many models also come equipped with DESTACO® Toggle Lock Plus®, an innovative safety feature that adds a secondary lock to the vertical clamp to help ensure that the over-center locking condition is maintained and protected against unintentional opening. Many DESTACO® Vertical Toggle Lock Plus® models also lock the clamp in the open position.
