We announced back in June, 2018 that we had been granted a patent for our Micro Adjustable Clamps and they are finally in our inventory and available on our website.
This year at SEMA we won two Global Media Awards, one for our new Micro Adjustable Clamp and one for our Quick Release Fire Extinguisher Roll Bar Clamp. That makes three Global Media Awards for us as we were awarded one for our Custom Clamp last year.
Our Micro Adjustable Clamp is the same high quality clamp you have come to appreciate and we are so proud of here at TKO Clamping Systems. They are still a multi-hinged 3 part aluminum band, which incorporates a negative angle locking latch system. They are also still made from 6061 aluminum. But we have added the ability for the customer to make a small adjustment.
Two of the most frequently asked questions we get when talking to people at car and buggy shows are “How do I correctly measure for the clamp” and “How do you adjust it”.
The simple answer was TKO Custom Clamps are custom machined for your application and are ready to install. However they also come with 2 different compliant liners. We include a 1/64 and 1/32 inch thick liner and depending on your preference, any or none can be used. The compliant liner has 2 functions. First, it alleviates or lessens marking/denting on the hose from the convex ridge and it can assist with a tighter fit, if you feel that is needed.
Some customers were not confident with their ability to get an accurate measurement for an order. This led us to develop a product that allowed a little leeway for those customers. Every one has a different opinion of what tight enough is so please check out our “How to Measure” and “How to install” videos.
Award Winning Micro Adjustable Clamp.
Our new Award winning Micro Adjustable Clamps come with an adjustable Button Head Bolt, incorporated into our latch, a 1/32″ liner and a bridge for use when opening to the larger size range. Each order also includes a Torx style size T10 install tool. Thus allowing the consumer the ability to tighten or loosen the clamp as needed. This allows TKO to offer a custom machined product that can be purchased on-line or in a retail store off the shelf without the need for our final touch machining.
Keep an eye on our web site for updates.
We have other products coming in the near future so stay tuned.
