Our Lockjaw range has recently expanded with the addition of some impressively powerful new clamping products. Peter Craven explains the benefits to manufacturers, tradespeople and DIY enthusiasts alike.
Sutton Tools launched the Lockjaw brand almost two decades ago. Since then, the unique Lockjaw range of products has earned a respected name in the market with tradies, machinists, craftspeople and even Weekend Warriors.
In a major advance, we’ve just launched four new series of industry-strength clamps that significantly extend the scope and abilities of our original range.
One-Hand Alumi Clamps
This range of four sizes is designed for heavy industrial and professional applications – when you need to hold weighty materials in place. The aluminium alloy body is designed to withstand immense pressure, with a clamping force of up to an astonishing 350kgs.
These clamps feature buffer jaw heads with automatic bounce-back action when released. The bar is made of strengthened carbon steel.
One-Hand Dual Clamps
In another four-size range, the nylon composite clamp body is strengthened with a carbon steel bar. The Deep V grooved or flat TRP grip pads are changeable – allowing you to clamp different shaped objects firmly without damaging their surface. The dual clamps have a jaw depth of 85mm and provide a maximum clamping force of 200kg.
Coming in three sizes, our parallel Lockjaw clamp is easily converted into a spreader without using any tools. Its smooth carbon steel bar allows the clamp to slide quietly while making it an overall lighter weight and the aluminium alloy clamp body is finished with powder coating. With large flat TPR pads, a jaw depth of 100mm, the parallel clamp has an amazing maximum force of of to 400kgs!
Finally, we’ve redesigned our standard Lockjaw ratchet clamps and the large 102mm, medium 63mm and mini 38mm hand clamps are now manufactured in robust nylon composite. The ratchet mechanism has an easy release trigger. Each size has V-grooved clamping pads and TPR grip handles for firm handling.
These new Lockjaw clamps are available now – for more information talk to your Sutton Tools Account Manager.
