PARA-CLIP™ Parallels Holding System
Designed to speed and simplify the retention of parallels in metal working vises
- Holds a wide range of parallels from 1/2-inch to 1-5/8-inches
- Saves the cost of machining step-jaws
- Quick, clean, easy – eliminates the need for springs, rubber bands, tape, bent saw blades or other make-do methods
It’s this simple –
Our patented PARA-CLIP™ Parallels Holding System consists of two clip plates and four clips. Attach the clip plates to your vise – it only takes a few minutes. Then use the clips to hold the appropriate size parallels in place. When parallels are not needed, just release the clips and continue working.
Proven reliable for CNC and manual machining applications.
The one-time installation of our patented PARA-CLIP™ retaining plates takes only a few moments. Simply unbolt the jaw plate, position the retaining plate and bolt the jaw plate back in place.
The PARA-CLIP™ Parallels Holding System works well with thin pieces. The retaining clip is designed to allow the vise to be closed to a minimum of 0.20 inches.
Special clips are available for gripping angled work-piece holders. Custom designs can be developed to meet your specific needs.
