Original Press Release

J.W. Winco Offers Fork Heads with Retaining Clips

Press release date: April 4, 2014

NEW BERLIN, WI – J.W. Winco, Inc., a leading supplier of standard industrial machine components, announced it now offers GN 751-AL Aluminum Fork Heads (Yokes) with Shaft Safety Retaining Clip in metric sizes.

These RoHS-compliant fork heads are mainly used with pneumatic or hydraulic cylinders, and consist of a fork head with KL-shaft safety or SL-shaft safety retaining clip.  Type KL is a “single” shaft safety retaining clip; only one side secures the pin in place (therefore if bumped in the wrong way, may slip out of place).  Type SL is a “double” shaft safety retaining clip; both sides are raised to secure the pin from both directions.  To remove this retaining clip, you must pull up on the spring sheet metal.

The fork body and pin are anodized, black aluminum.  The fork pin shaft safety retaining clip is spring steel, hardened and tempered, zinc-plated, and blue passivated.  Due to the anodized coating of the fork head and pin, this component is virtually non-wearing.

J.W. Winco offers an extensive selection of inch and metric size adjustable levers, cabinet U-handles, plastic and steel hinges and locking mechanisms, revolving and retractable handles, hand wheels, hand cranks, tube connection and conveyor components, inch and metric construction tubing, shock absorption mounts, leveling mounts, hand knobs, spring, ball and indexing plungers, jig, fixture and fastening components, retaining magnet assemblies, toggle clamps, metric casters and wheels, universal joints, oil sight glasses, and metric tools for the industrial and commercial equipment industries.
