Destaco vertical hold down clamps (2002 Series) or vertical toggle clamps hold workpieces firmly in a stationary position using a lever handle that engages & releases the clamping head while pushing it to the upright position. They have a fixed design for securing and loosening materials without moving the clamps and have a flanged or straight base with threaded holes for easy installation. They are ideal for applications in the automotive, aerospace, consumer goods and food & packaging industries for checking fixtures, light machining, assembling, testing, welding, drilling, milling and woodworking. They are used for applying downward clamping force by increasing the applied load through toggle mechanisms and are integrated with precisely machined components having hardened & ground pivot pins and bushings for prolonged service life. These weldable vertical toggle clamps provide the flexibility to position the handle, base & clamp arm and weld them in the desired position for different clamping applications. These 2002 Series Destaco clamps feature stainless steel construction with black oxide, non reflective finish (selected models) for resisting corrosion on exposed surfaces, and are capable of withstanding loads up to 600 lb. These clamps offer a stationary alternative to removable C clamps or spring clamps while securing material to a work surface and come equipped with a long handle providing excellent hand clearance that can be repositioned to limit the opening angles up to 90 degrees for additional safety. These clamp's bolt patterns are interchangeable with 202 Series toggle clamps. They are used with bolt retainers, spindle assemblies and flanged washers. Selected models come with the Toggle Lock Plus safety feature to prevent unintentional opening of the clamps. Destaco 2002 Series vertical toggle clamps are available in U bar or solid bar clamp arm variants on Raptor Supplies, for easy attachment of arm extensions.
