225 Series Horizontal Hold Down Clamps

These Destaco 225 Series horizontal toggle clamps or horizontal handle toggle clamps are designed for holding workpieces in place using a horizontal lever handle that lays flat when the clamp is engaged. They offer a stationary alternative to removable clamps when performing repetitive tasks in the aerospace, automotive and food & packaging industries. These units feature a low profile design for light duty clamping applications such as closures, assembling, checking fixtures and woodworking in tight spaces. Destaco hold down toggle locking clamps are made of stainless steel for rigidity and corrosion resistance and feature a horizontal handle parallel to the clamping bar that is capable of moving in the opposite direction. These clamps require minimum overhead clearance with a 90 degrees clamp bar opening and have a spring in the jaw to hold the clamps in place after a few adjustments. They have U shaped clamping arms with flanged or straight base mounting options for easy surface installation. Destaco horizontal hold down clamps come with a handle, a lever system, and a securing bar that ensures the objects won’t move. The equipped lever system applies enough pressure on the object to keep the workpiece steady for work and these clamps also incorporate a linkage system that applies a powerful clamping force with minimum effort to lock or unlock. Selected models come integrated with Toggle Lock Plus safety feature to ensure that the over-centre locking condition is maintained and the clamp remains protected against unintentional opening. Additionally, these Destaco horizontal clamps are capable of handling loads up to 600 lb and can accommodate flanged washers, cross arm sets & flat tip bonded neoprene spindles for high performance workholding, automation and containment solutions.

Frequently Asked Questions

How are horizontal toggle clamps used?

Horizontal toggle clamps use an over center locking action to hold a workpiece or fixture in the locked position.

How do you adjust a toggle clamp?

After clamping, the applied force can be adjusted by loosening / tightening the spindle nut (supplied with selected units for protection from abrasion, twisting or flexing).

What is the difference between horizontal and vertical toggle clamps?

The key difference between the horizontal and vertical toggle clamps are of the position of the handle while the clamp is locked. A vertical toggle clamp has the handle positioned perpendicular to the base i.e. vertically, whereas in horizontal clamps, the handle position is parallel to the base (horizontally), when the clamp is locked.

What is a horizontal toggle clamp used for?

A toggle clamp is used to securely locate parts or components in place and is typically a part of the production process. The predominant feature of these clamps are their quick acting characteristics, as they can be easily & quickly turned off and on by the operator in the aerospace, automotive and food & packaging industries.
