Hook clamps apply a direct, downward clamping force on a work piece while remaining low in profile. The standard style is designed with a long clamping arm, providing an extended clamping reach. Compact hook clamps feature a shorter arm for use in tight areas. Additionally, several of these hook clamp models have a tapped hole at the end of the clamping arm, which allows for the insertion of an adjustable contact point that further extends the clamp’s working capabilities.
Because of their low profile design, hook clamps work well in limited space applications where a large amount of clamping force is needed. These hook clamps are able to provide as much as 8,500 lbs of force. Also available are spring loaded models to release quickly and easily from the work piece. Hook clamp accessories, such as hook clamp holders, are also available. These help adapt hook clamps to a wide range of applications.
