Frequently Asked Questions
How do latch clamps work?
These vertical handle toggle clamps depend on 3 main components - a handle for operating the tool, a clamping arm for contact point between the work item & clamp, and a base for attaching the clamp to the surface. Once the simple linkage system of the clamp is put in the over-centre position, the handle is pulled horizontally for creating force parallel to the base and squeeze-holding the work items.
What is jaw opening?
The jaw opening is the degree of how far the mouth of the jaws of a toggle clamp can open. This indicates its maximum capacity. Destaco 5110 Series vertical handle toggle clamps feature an opening angle of 138 degrees.
What does clamping pressure mean?
The holding power of a toggle clamp is a crucial factor to take into account before starting an application. The operator has to place the right amount of pressure on the workpiece while clamping. We suggest not to exceed the recommended pressure because it may tremendously damage your workpiece. In addition, too little weight is also not ideal.
