MATERIALS: Carr Lane Mfg. Co.’s versatile threaded detent pins can be fit with a wide selection of knob handles for various applications. These solid quick-release pins have a ground shank and a threaded end. Shank diameters are available from 3/16 to ½ inch, along with metric sizes, and grip lengths from 1/2 inch to 4 inches. Pins come with built-in locking balls, which are held in place by spring force—push to insert, pull to remove. Carr Lane supplies a variety of ball knobs, t handles, fluted knobs and recessed top knobs for use with the threaded pins.
All Carr Lane toggle clamps have a comfortable handle grip, and are made of durable high-grade steel (many also available in stainless steel).
