210 Series Vertical Hold Down Clamps
Destaco 210 Series vertical hold down clamps are suitable for mounting to tight spaces. They are equipped with lever handles that are pushed to the upright position for holding workpieces firmly in place when the clamps are engaged. These toggle clamps feature a fixed design for securing & loosening materials without moving the clamps, and are ideal for the automotive, aerospace, and food & packaging industries. They feature an air actuated cylinder with input port for connecting to the compressed air source and then utilise the compressed air for applying clamping pressure to hold the workpiece in place. These vertical hold down toggle clamps come integrated with hardened bushings & pins at all pivot points for longer service life. These units allow economical use on short run jobs with short term fixturing, are completely self contained & need only a single pressure source for added safety.

Destaco vertical hold down toggle clamps are virtually maintenance free and they only require a few drops of lubricating oil to keep them in excellent condition. These clamps enable the user to undertake an action without being worried by the frequent movement of a workpiece. The unique pivot and lever system are to ensure maximum function and excellent performance. They have high exerting force and flexible adjustability that are useful when working with materials of varying thicknesses. These units are made of steel / stainless steel for resisting corrosion on exposed surfaces and come integrated with an ergonomic vertical handle for a strong & comfortable grip.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is a vertical hold down clamp?
Destaco vertical hold down clamps are specially designed for holding the workpiece stationary against a flat surface / workbench for various industrial applications like woodworking & metalworking.
What is the difference between a vertical & horizontal toggle clamp?
The difference lies in the positioning of the clamp handle when the clamp is in the locked position. A vertical clamp handle is positioned vertically (perpendicular to the base) when in locked position, while in the case of a horizontal toggle clamp, it is positioned horizontally (parallel to the base).
How do vertical hold down clamps work?
Certain U bar style clamps like Destaco 207-U feature a flat tip bonded neoprene spindle that is manually operated using a handle / lever. This handle movement pushes the spindle against the workpiece and prevents it from moving mid operation, thereby ensuring secure clamping.
What does holding capacity mean in terms of clamps?
The holding force or the holding capacity signifies the clamp's capability to hold down equipment or sheet metal on the assembly line or during similar manufacturing processes.
Which grease is ideal for Destaco clamps for their rebuilding?
A coupling grease like Mobil XTC should be used when dealing with Destaco mechanical clamps, while the Magnalube G grease is great for use with pneumatic cylinder seals.
What is the significance of the red colour of the handle of Destaco clamps?
There is no such significance of colour of the clamp's handle, as it only represents a recognisable area. This helps operators in finding the handle quickly & easily.
Does Destaco supply water resistant clamp sensors?
Yes, Destaco also supplies inductive sensors designed in accordance with IP65 standards to ensure protection from powerful hydraulic jets, dust & heavy rain.
Does Raptor Supplies offer replacement spindles for hold down clamps?
Yes, Raptor Supplies provides Destaco spindles for hold down clamps, to replace worn out units and protect them from damage caused by abrasion / twisting / flexing.
What variants of Destaco vertical handle toggle clamps are available on Raptor Supplies?
Destaco vertical handle toggle clamps are available in steel, stainless steel and forged alloy steel variants.
