TIPS FOR USING THIS CATALOG

Simply select the version you prefer one time, then your selection will remain in effect whenever you return to the catalog. To change catalog version, you may toggle between the versions using the mouse over the title underneath the logo at the top of the navigation bar.
Our catalog is organized into the 15 product groups shown in the left navigation bar. The navigation bar appears on every product's catalog page to allow quickly jumping to any catalog section. When you select a catalog section, a pictorial index for that product group appears.
Some items in the index have lowercase names. Selecting one of these takes you directly to the product page. Other items have uppercase names. Selecting one of these takes you to a sub-index to make further selections. Some listings begin with "ALSO SEE". These are cross-listings from another product group related to the current group.
Each product page has up to five different tabs at the top, for different page screens: Features, Dimensions, Applications, Larger Photo or Size Comparison, and Video. Press these buttons to move between the page screens. Every product begins with a "Features" screen, which shows a photograph along with technical information. Every product also has a "Dimensions" screen, which lists individual part numbers along with dimensional drawings and tables.
PART NUMBER HYPERLINKS
The "Dimensions" screen provides a listing of individual part numbers as hyperlinks. This is your gateway to checking price, checking quantity discounts, checking stock, retrieving CAD drawings, and ordering from our Factory Store.
When you click on a part number, this selection screen appears, to allow checking price and availability or to download a CAD drawing.
PRICE & AVAILABILITY
When you enter a quantity and click on "Price & Availability," this screen appears, displaying quantity, price, and inventory status. To see all quantity breaks, click on "Sell Price." To add the item to your shopping cart, click on "Add to Cart."
Certain products, such as Cable Assemblies, cut cast sections, and special Ball Lock Pins, need to be configured to calculate a price. Use these instructions to determine how to build the correct part number.
When you click on "Add to Cart", your shopping cart displays. At this point, you can go back to add other items, return to the catalog, change quantities and update your cart, or clear your cart. To order the items in your cart from our Factory Store, press "Begin Checkout".
When you click on a part number from the "Dimensions" screen, in addition to the Price & Availability check is a menu to view and download available CAD drawings for the part. The initial view is the 3D Drawing. (The Viewpoint Media Player is required to view the 3D CAD drawing online.)
Click "2D Viewer" to view the 2D drawing for the part. (The SolidWorks eDrawings browser plugin is required to view the 2D CAD drawing online.)
To view available downloads for the CAD drawing click on "CAD Downloads". A variety of 2D and 3D formats are available for download. Select the type and version of the software you will use to view the file, then click "Go" to prepare the file for download.
Once the file is ready for download, click the "Download" button to download the file to your computer.
CAD drawings can also be downloaded directly from the Carr Lane home page, without using the catalog. Just enter the part number to see what drawing formats are available: 2D, 3D wire frames, or solids, in a variety of formats.
The Online Catalog also has a handy search feature, below the catalog sections. To search for an item, simply enter its part number, part family, or a keyword, then press "Search."
