Features

  • Quick-Release Handles Allow Post Clamps to be Easily Repositioned

    • 2.03" (51.4 mm) Long
  • Provides More Control and Feel when Locking and Unlocking a Clamp

The Quick-Release Handles provide a simple and reliable way of securing a flexure-based post clamp. In many cases a cap screw is used to lock a flexure-based clamp in place on a post, which requires a balldriver for adjustments. Depending on the mounted load, using a balldriver can be difficult, or even unsafe. These quick-release handles mitigate this problem by allowing the clamp to be hand-tightened, ensuring better control over the amount of torque applied to tighten or loosen the clamp. This also decreases the amount of time needed for basic setup and alignment by eliminating the need for additional balldrivers and allowing for a quick way to secure a clamp.

A list of Ø1" and Ø1.5" Post Clamps that are compatible with these handles can be found in the table below. Note the C10QR(/M) is not compatible with the C1026(/M) and C1060(/M) Cage System Clamps for Ø1" Posts; the C15QR handle can be used with these clamps instead.

Easily installed by replacing the 1/4"-20 (M6) locking screw in a post clamp, each handle contains a 1/4"-20 (M6 x 1.0) threaded stud that engages a part by rotating the handle. Once the handle is tightened to secure a clamp to a post, the internal ratchet-type mechanism allows for the handle's rotational position to be adjusted without actuating the mounting stud. Simply pull the handle outwards to disengage it from the mounting stud, as shown in the image to the right, then rotate it to a more convenient position. This feature ensures that the handle will always be accessible to the user.
