J.W. Winco, Inc. announced it now offers Straight Nylon Plastic Adjustable Levers in eight types, in inch and metric sizes. They include WN 302 tapped, blind bore and stud versions with steel components, WN 302.1 tapped, blind bore and stud versions in with stainless steel components, and push button types WN 304 (steel components) and WN 304.1 (stainless steel components), also offered in tapped, blind bore and stud variations.
These RoHS complaint components have a straight lever parallel to the clamping surface. For some applications this presents an advantage due to limits of space or for visual reasons. Handles, offered in black or orange, are glass fiber reinforced nylon thermoplastic with molded-in metal inlay. The insert is connected to the lever via serrations which can be easily be disengaged. Pulling the lever upwards disengages the serrations, allowing it to be swiveled to the ideal clamping position. When releasing the lever, the spring allows the serrations to automatically re-engage. On the push button versions, the releasing button is a design element and allows for effortless release action. The nylon plastic push buttons are also available in black or orange.
