Title (EN) LOCKING SQUEEZE-OFF CLAMP
(FR) PINCE-ETAU AVEC MECANISME DE VERROUILLAGE
Abstract:
(EN) A latching mechanism (26) for an adjustable squeeze-off clamp (10) comprising a static jaw (16), a movable jaw (18) with an associated adjustment member (20) and an over-the-center operating linkage including an operating handle (23) and a link (24). The latching mechanism is selectively automatic whereby, when the lock mode is selected and the clamp is then closed, it automatically locks. The latch mechanism includes a spring (32) and a latch bar (28) with pivotal mounting (30) and notched end (36). In at least one embodiment, the latching mechanism includes an eccentric knob (42) for selection of the automatic locking mode.
(FR) L'invention concerne un mécanisme de verrouillage (26) pour une pince-étau ajustable (10) comportant une mâchoire statique (16), une mâchoire mobile (18) munie d'un élément de réglage (20) associé, et un élément d'articulation à détente brusque comprenant une poignée (23) et un élément de liaison (24). Le mécanisme de verrouillage est automatique de façon sélective en ce que lorsque le mode de verrouillage est sélectionné et qu'ensuite la pince est refermée, la pince est automatiquement verrouillée. Le mécanisme de verrouillage comporte un ressort (32) et une tige de verrou (28) munie d'une fixation pivotante (30) et d'une extrémité à encoche (36). Dans un mode de réalisation au moins, le mécanisme de verrouillage comporte un bouton (42) excentré permettant de sélectionner le mode de verrouillage automatique.
