Ball Lock Pins
Ball Lock Pins are high-strength, quick-release alignment pins with a precision ground shank. Ball Lock Pins are positive locking until released by pushing the button, which moves the center spindle forward to allow the locking balls to retract (double-acting version releases by pushing or pulling). Carr Lane offers a large assortment of Ball Lock Pins including heavy-duty Ball Lock Pins, adjustable Ball Lock Pins, lifting pins, marine pins, double acting Ball Lock Pins and ball lock receiver caps that are ideal for securing Ball Lock Pins used in clevis applications. Browse available Ball Lock Pins, lifting pins, marine pins & more below in the Carr Lane catalog.
Edge Clamps
Workholding Edge Clamps manufactured by Carr Lane grip the side of a workpiece to keep the top clear for easy machining. Carr Lane’s innovative Tiny Vise® Edge Clamps, available in seven variations feature a patented slotted countersink design, providing strong clamping force with the easy turn of a hex wrench. Carr Lane Serrated Edge Clamps are versatile enough to accommodate a variety of workpiece-size variations, featuring a serrated jaw that slides at a 45-degree angle to exert downward and forward clamping force simultaneously. For large castings and other tall workpieces, opt for Carr Lane pivoting edge clamps. Browse Carr Lane’s complete line of American-made Workholding Edge Clamps in our online catalog. 
Drill-Jig Bushings
Carr Lane’s complete line of drill bushings includes press-fit bushings, renewable bushings, liner bushings, castable bushings, chip-breaker bushings, directed-coolant bushings, oil-groove bushings, gun-drill bushings, template bushings, threaded template bushings, circuit-board drill bushings, air-feed drill bushings, carbide bushings, lockscrews, and bushing clamps. We also offer our most popular and common drill bushings with same-day shipping to save you time. Browse hundreds of unique, high-quality drill jig bushings below in the Carr Lane online catalog.
Hoist Eye 360®
Hoist Eye 360 is a forged lifting eye that can be rotated 360° after installation, to align with the pulling direction. This compact assembly features a specially designed shoulder bolt, which rotates freely in the precisely machined lifting-eye body and is held captive by a retaining ring. Unlike conventional lifting eyes, Hoist Eye 360 can be used at full rated load capacity when pulling at any angle 0 to 90° from the bolt axis.

Please note, Hoist Eye 360 is suitable only for applications where all lifting-eye rotation takes place before lifting begins, with no swivel action occurring while under load. For applications that require swiveling under load, use a Swivel Hoist Ring instead (see Related Products below).
Carr Lane offers innovative locating product lines, stocking industry-leading locating pins, tooling balls & fixture keys. Carr Lane locating pins are available in numerous constructions, including round, diamond, press-fit, lockscrew, floating, bullet-nose and cone varieties. Shoulder and adjustable type construction tooling balls and pads (rectangular & round)  are used as a reference point for critical inspection and machining operations.

Floating Clamps
New Item!

Floating Clamps are position-flexible clamping devices. The top jaw and bottom jaw together provide a floating clamping point that adjusts to the workpiece before locking, to prevent deformation. These combination clamp/supports are often used in conjunction with primary locators and clamps, providing additional support points to reduce machining vibration. Floating Clamps are especially useful for clamping forgings, ribbed or flanged castings, and other larger parts.

To initiate clamping, push the Floating Clamp downward, then immediately swing the jaws into clamping position. The clamping jaws will automatically rise so that the bottom jaw contacts the workpiece with a light spring force. Next, tighten the top hex nut 11 ft-lbs minimum to 22 ft-lbs maximum, depending on the support load capacity desired. During the tightening process, the workpiece is clamped and simultaneously supported.

For custom applications, the standard upper clamping jaw supplied can be replaced by a special clamping jaw.
Captive Locating Screws with Hand Knob
New item!

These Captive Locating Screws have an integral hand knob for tightening by hand. Captive Locating Screws can be used for locating and clamping, or for clamping only, by selecting the appropriate screw length. The locating screw's precision-ground body is positively retained in a locking bushing. In fully retracted position, the bushing's spring clip snaps into the body's radial groove. This holds the screw fully retracted by spring force and positively prevents removal. Spring pressure also holds the screw in intermediate extended positions, an advantage especially if the fixture is turned upside down. Available in thread sizes from 1/4-20 to 1/2-13 (M6 to M12 in metric). Made in USA.

The complete assemblies listed below include a Captive Locating Screw, Locking-Pin Bushing, and Lockscrew. Choice of standard or long bushing in most sizes, for installation in thinner or thicker plates. Locking-Pin Bushings are designed to press fit in a standard reamed hole, and can be further secured with the included Lockscrew to positively hold the bushing in place.
