Carr Lane Mfg. offers several types of toggle clamps, including horizontal & vertical handle clamps, push-pull toggle clamps and latch-action toggle clamps. These toggle clamps fit into four different groups; hold down toggle clamps, plier (squeeze action) toggle clamps, pull/latch action toggle clamps and straight-line toggle clamps.
Hold Down Toggle Clamps: Both vertical and horizontal handle toggle clamps are classified as hold-down toggle clamps. This type of toggle clamp applies force in a downward direction and is used perpendicular to the tools that are mounting to the surface. The difference between these two types of toggle clamp is the location of the handle and the bar.
Squeeze Action Toggle Clamps: Squeeze action toggle clamps, also known as toggle pliers, are used to apply force on different parts placed between the upper and lower jaws of the clamp. These are commonly used to pinch together two pieces to secure them to a surface.
Pull/Latching Toggle Clamps: This type of toggle clamp is commonly used for closing objects, such as mold closures and sealing lids on production lines and is adaptable for numerous applications
Straight Line Toggle Clamps: This type of toggle clamp includes clamps also referred to as push-pull and plunger-style clamps. Straight line toggle clamps can be used for clamping different objects together, like wood and molds. This type of toggle clamp can lock in either a push or a pull position.
