The Type BK1 is a self adjusting clamp consisting oftwo parts. The body has a spherical seat cast into it toallow a hemispherical washer to sit in and rotate. Thisallows the body to adjust to any clamping thicknesswhile providing a flat surface for a nut or bolt to betightened down onto it. This product is ideal forapplications where the flange thickness cannot easilybe measured or where the flange thickness may varythroughout a project. Due to its clamping action, it isalso suitable for clamping tapered flanges and rails upto 15 degrees.All sizes of BK1 have a wide back tail section to allowthe clamp to bridge the gap of a slotted hole and alsoto connect to the open face of metal framing strutchannel. The 5/16'', 3/8'' and 1/2'' products have anadditional cut out in the tail to provide a tab that fitsinside the open face of the strut.
Long packing shims (BF2 and BG2) can be used to increase the clamping range, see page 12 for details. To make selecting the appropriate packing easier please refer to Table 1 on page 16 of the catalog.
