Kwik-Lok Lifting Pins Merge Lifting Hardware and Quick-Release Technologies

Cleveland, Ohio-based Jergens, Inc.'s Kwik-Lok Lifting Pins are designed for convenience, speed, and safety in challenging applications and environments. When quick-change connections are required for material handling, construction, utilities, rigging or other applications, Kwik-Lok Lifting Pins deliver confident lifting, the company said. Engineered to provide a 5-to-1 strength factor, these lifting pins are 100-percent stainless steel, with a 17-4 PH stainless steel forged lifting ring to resist corrosion in harsh environments. The rings' large opening accommodates a wide range of lifting hooks or hardware. A load spreader bar on each of the rings helps to prevent accidental actuation.

Maximum lifting loads from 400 to 1,400 pounds are accommodated by a wide range of pins available in both inch and metric sizes. In inches, nominal pin diameters range from 1/4" to 5/8" and grip lengths range from 0.5" to 3". Metric lifting pins are available with nominal pin diameters of 10 to 16 mm, grip lengths of 15 to 75 mm, and maximum lifting loads from 4.4 to 6.2 kN.

With Kwik-Lok Lifting Pins, Jergens has merged two of its major product technologies: lifting hardware and quick-release pins.

All Kwik-Lok products are made in the United States with domestically produced materials. For applications where the required hole size cannot be achieved, threaded receptacles are available in both inch and metric sizes.
