Clampco offers several over center latch handle designs. The over center latches pictured at right show our captured and slotted yoke designs. A captured yoke holds the T-bolt in place when operators open the over center latch, while a slotted yoke lets the T-bolt fall away from the clamp assembly. Your application requirements will determine what yoke style is the best option.
Several safety features are also available with the over center latch handles. These options prevent accidental opening of the clamp. The light-duty over center latch handle can include a safety clip, which flips over the end of the handle. Another option is a safety pin, which locks the yoke to the handle.
The medium-duty over center handle is available with a safety pin or a safety clip. Once again, the safety pin locks the yoke to the handle and must be removed prior to opening the clamp. The safety clip works by providing interference with the handle and must be pressed down in order to fully open the handle.
