P&S Clamp-Lock(TM) Straight Blade Plugs and Connectors Provide Consistent, Dependable Connections


SYRACUSE, N.Y. (Oct. 14, 2008) - Pass & Seymour/Legrand (P&S), a leading manufacturer of electrical wiring devices and home systems, introduced Clamp-Lock(TM) to its line of Straight Blade Plugs and Connectors, a revolutionary way to terminate electrical devices for faster and easier assembly. P&S Clamp-Lock offers lever-actuated termination and eliminates traditional screw terminals for faster and more reliable wire connections.

To terminate a conductor, simply pull a color-coded cam lever to open a Clamp-Lock termination clamp, insert the stripped conductor and close the lever. Clamp-Lock eliminates the need to insert a tool into the device or to re-torque, since it provides consistent clamping force. There are no exposed terminals, making cord end applications finger-safe.

"Clamp-Lock ensures the same fast, safe, reliable connection for every installation," said Scott Bausch, commercial and industrial marketing manager at P&S. "Portable power applications demand fast set up and tear down, so this creates a huge advantage for electrical contractors."
