The clamp lock pins are ideally suited for connections which have to be released regularly. Their key advantage: Unlike other solutions, these pins can be fitted into short blind holes: Fastening the connection requires that the pin be inserted into the blind hole. A press of the button on the handle releases the balls, allowing the user to easily slip the pin into the bore hole. When the button is released, a taper on the interior pushes the balls outward again. The friction generated between the balls and the component clamps the clamp lock pin into place, securing the connection. Another push of the press button is all it takes to release the pin again. This will release the locked balls again, allowing the clamp lock pin to be removed effortlessly. This mechanism allows for the quick connection and release of two parts without the need for any additional tools.
The clamp lock pins are available with mushroom-type knobs measuring 6 mm, 8 mm, 10 mm, 12 mm and 16 mm in diameter and with lengths ranging from 10 to 120 mm - depending on the version. The user can choose between two material options: a version made from stainless steel (1.4305) or a version constructed from precipitation hardened stainless steel (1.4542).
