Ejector Handles are designed to save assembly time.

Ejector Handles are designed to save assembly time.

Suited for VME and other applications, IEC ejector handles feature one-piece configuration that promotes accelerated and error-free assembly. Two load-bearing cross-sections, one on each side of ejector, are optimized for size to promote stability and prevent handle from rocking back and forth under stress. Pivot motion occurs between ejector and extrusion when it is engaged, eliminating friction...
