The outstanding features of GN 8330 hook clamps are superior functionality and design. The integrated spring mechanism holds the locking lever and the clamping hook in the open position and allows effortless operation.
Once the dead center is exceeded, the elasticity of the sheet metal parts will cause the hook clamp to close. In the clamped position, the required drill hole spacing is m2.
With the stroke w of the clamping hook, the components to be joined can be drawn together during clamping.
The locking mechanism can be secured against opening inadvertently using spring-loaded wire plugs. The wire plug is placed into the d2 bore hole. Lead seals may also be attached via d2.
The retaining force given in the table is a guide value for the potentially static tensile stress load acting on the hook clamp. Depending on the conditions of use (e.g. when exposed to vibrations or shock impact), the retaining force may be impaired.
GN 8330.1 spring-loaded wire plugs available upon request.
