The Model NMBL (non-marring) clamp is manufactured with smooth gripping surfaces to prevent marring when gripping carbon steel, stainless steel, copper, aluminum and other polished metal plates. The clamp incorporates a “Lock Open” and “Lock Closed” feature to facilitate attaching and removing the clamp from the plate. An adjusting screw is used to compensate for various thicknesses of plates. The clamp is supplied with stainless steel gripping surfaces and is available with steel or bronze upon request. The Model NMBL may be used to turn plates from the horizontal through a hundred and eighty degree arc. When used in this manner, the clamp should be attached to the plate such that the adjusting screw is positioned on the top side of the plate. The Model NMBL is not intended for use in transporting of plates using mobile equipment where shock loading may be severe. Due to the variety of conditions that may exist in handling plates, it is recommended the clamps be used in pairs and attached to a chain or wire rope sling, supported by a spreader bar.
