A Simple and Safe Connection
for Structural Metal Sections

 

A Faster Way with BoxSok

To tighten down a BoxBolt, an installer must typically use 2 wrenches to install one bolt - one to hold the outer sleeve stationary, and one to turn the inner bolt.

The BoxSok adds simplicity to the installation process. Attached to a regular socket wrench (air powered makes this a snap), it takes the place of both wrenches. The BoxSok has an outer piece that will hold the sleeve of the BoxBolt stationary, while an inner piece turns the bolt. This makes what would have been a 4 minute job (per bolt) into a 30 second job.

Some Specification Considerations

Clamping Range

The clamping range of the BoxBolt connector is the combined thickness of the steel being connected and the steelwork being connected to. Each diameter of the BoxBolt connector has three overlapping lengths designed to accommodate a wide range of material thicknesses. If your clamping range exceeds those stated above, special lengths are available.
