Product Overview

The Camlok CY plate clamp with a hinged lifting hook ring can be used for the safe handling of steel plate at various angles. It can lift plate from the horizontal and put down in the vertical.

An ideal product to be used in pairs in conjunction with a chain sling for larger lengths of materials.

The hinged hook ring ensures adequate gripping pressure in every position, but the load capacity is reduced as seen in the diagram showing the load / force capacities.

The main benefit of the CY hinged plate clamps is that longer plates can be lifted or handled, using two clamps on a two legged chain sling, thus eliminating the need for a spreader beam. 

In addition to transporting plates, this clamp is suitable for turning steel structures and fabricated welded constructions.

The plate surface of the material being clamped must have a hardness level below HRC 30/Brinell 300.

The working load limit is per clamp, and each clamp is fitted with a safety locking lever.

For this clamp to operate safely and secure the load a minimum load of 10% of the lifting clamp WLL is required.

As with all our Camlok equipment they have been designed with maintenance and service in mind, and therefore spare parts are available from U.K. Stocks, and repair work can be carried out by a suitably trained and component person.
