Cam lever fasteners allow for quick fastening and unfastening without the use of tools. They allow the user to tighten by threading like a traditional fastener however, for final tightening the cam lever is pushed downward. To unfasten, the cam lever is pulled up releasing the clamping force and allowing the fastener to be unthreaded. They are ideal for quick change operations where parts only have to be loosened and not completely unassembled.
Several different styles of cam levers are available to help suit an application’s need, including low profile and adjustable, with handle material options that include aluminum, plastic, and stainless steel.
