J.W. Winco, Inc. announced it now offers series GN 304.1 Tapped Type, Straight Zinc Die-Cast Adjustable Levers with Push Button, with Stainless Steel Components in inch and metric sizes. These RoHS-compliant hand levers have a straight lever parallel to the clamping surface. For some applications this presents an advantage due to limits of space or for visual reasons.
The insert is connected to the lever via serrations which can be easily be disengaged. Pulling the lever upward disengages the serrations, allowing it to be swiveled to the ideal clamping position. When the lever is released, the serrations automatically re-engage. The releasing button is a design element and allows for effortless release action. However, this design is limited to applications that do not require the lever to be disassembled.
The handle is zinc die-cast, and the push button is nylon plastic. The insert, spring, and screw for push button are stainless steel. Levers are available in matte black pebble finish, orange or silver smooth finish, or red textured finish. Buttons may be black, orange, or gray smooth finish. <http://www.jwwinco.com/technical/index.html> Additional modifications including plain bores, tapped threads and special stud lengths are available upon request.
