Product Announcement from Jergens, Inc.
Jergens, Inc. has announced a series of lifting pins. Kwik-Lok™ Lifting Pins combine the convenience of a positive-locking pin, push button release design with a 5 to 1 strength factor to provide confident lifting. The lifting pins are 100% stainless steel, with a 17-4 PH stainless steel forged lifting ring to resist corrosion in harsh environments. The rings' large opening accommodates a wide range of lifting hooks or hardware.
A load spreader bar on each of the rings helps to prevent accidental actuation. A wide range of pins is available in both inch and metric sizes. In inches, nominal pin diameters range from 1/4 " to 5/8" and grip lengths range from 0.5 to 3.00". (Grip length is the thickness of the part being lifted.) Maximum lifting loads are from 400 to 1400 lbs. Metric lifting pins are available with nominal pin diameters of 10 to 16 mm, grip lengths of 15 to 75 mm, and maximum lifting loads from 4.4 to 6.2 kN.
All Kwik-Lok products are made in the USA of domestically produced materials. For applications where the required hole size cannot be achieved, threaded receptacles are available in both inch and metric sizes. The introduction of Kwik-Lok Lifting pins represents the merging of two significant Jergens product technologies, as the company is a major manufacturer of lifting hardware and a major maker of quick release pins.
