ALCO Safety Clamps
ALCO Safety Clamps are a multi-link device consisting of individual links that are flexibly hinged together. Each link has a separate tapered slip which acts as a gripping member and each slip is held in a retracted position on the taper by spring tension. When the clamp is tightened, each small slip takes a firm initial grip on the surface of the pipe. Should the pipe start to fall, or should load increase occur against the slips, the taper mounting causes each slip to wedge tighter against the surface of the pipe to increase the grip or lock the pipe against further movement or slippage.
Gripping pressure is always uniform around the pipe so there is little danger of crushing thin-walled pipe or damaging the pipe surface. And, since each link, complete with tapered slip, is interchangeable as a unit, the Safety Clamp is readily adaptable to virtually any diameter.
