Frequently Asked Questions

What does holding capacity mean in terms of clamps?

The holding force or the holding capacity depicts the clamp's capability to hold down the equipment or sheet metal on assembly lines or during similar manufacturing processes.

What is the difference between a vertical & horizontal toggle clamp?

The difference lies in the orientation of the handle when the clamp is in the locked position. A vertical clamp handle is oriented perpendicular to the base when it is in the locked position, while in the case of a horizontal toggle clamp, it is oriented parallel to the base.
