The LHC Model is a horizontal lifting clamp intended to be used in pairs, sets of pairs or in a tripod arrangement for transporting steel plates horizontally. The clamp is designed to lift individual sheets horizontally. Cam operations ensure a tight grip on the load. Serrated gripping cam bites into load for positive grip. Clamps rest in position on edge of plate until tension is applied to the load sling. Clamps must be used in single pairs (2), double pairs (4), or tripod (3) configuration with a lifting sling.
