New One-Piece Angler? Pipe and Conduit Clamp from Thomas & Betts
Offers Easy Installation, Easy Access
MEMPHIS, Tenn. ? July 11, 2005 ? The new one-piece Angler? Pipe and Conduit Clamp from Thomas & Betts is quick and easy to install. Just snap apart the two halves of the strut strap, fit to the pipe or conduit, slide the pre-threaded bolt through the innovative keyhole-shaped opening in the strap and tighten. An extruded, tapped threadform holds it securely, offering the loading performance of a hex nut but with easier handling. The signature bent tab design of the Angler Pipe and Conduit Clamp readily allows the clamp halves to be assembled and the bolt to extend up at a 30-degree angle, providing the installer immediate access to the bolt with a screwdriver or power tool ? even if the clamps are installed side by side.
The Thomas & Betts Angler Pipe and Conduit Clamp offers the highest load ratings of any universal break-apart strap in the industry. Embossed ribs strengthen the hooks connecting the strap to the strut, significantly increasing the loading capacity of the heavy gauge steel strap.
The new strap is sized to fit snugly to EMT, rigid conduit, IMC and standard pipe sizes of the same trade size. Thomas & Betts Angler Pipe and Conduit Clamps are UL listed and CSA approved.
