Swivel clamps LKQ of precision-cast stainless steel have a slitted clamping point machined by cutting methods and a smooth fastening lug.
The fastening lug is centered and perpendicular to the axis of the bore, which receives typically available rods and tubes with full contact over the entire cross-section.
The screw point of the fastening lug receives hex head or hex socket cap screws or a lock nut for fastening any additional parts. At the clamping point, a hex socket cap screw or an adjustable hand lever reduces the bore cross-section for clamping.
By combining swivel clamps with identical screw points, it is possible to assemble any type of joint clamp.
Adjustable hand levers are intended for repeated, tool-free clamping. Under the designation HEK, these are available separately for individual use and in other designs. Compared with the tool-operated hex socket cap screw, the clamping force achievable with an adjustable hand lever is lower due to the shorter lever length.
