Installation of Beam Clamps
Open the jaws of the clamp, so that they are wide enough to fit over the beam flange.
Once the jaws of the clamp have fit over the beam flange, use the screw handle to tighten the clamp firmly onto the beam.
Be sure that the beam flange is seated properly within the jaws before attaching any type of lifting devices or loads to the clamp.
Measure the width of the runway beam.
Assemble the suspension plate and required number of spacer washers to the inside of the trolley side plates.The dimension between the trolley wheel flanges should be ¼” larger than the beam flange.
Assemble the remaining washers to either side of the trolley side plates, and fit the nuts to the hanger pin.
It is important to note that for geared beam trolleys, the hanger pin may need to be offset so it will not come into contact with the hand wheel. This can be accomplished by placing the required amount of washers to the hanger pin on both sides of the side plates.
With the trolley loosely assembled, spread the side plates allowing the trolley wheels to be placed over the beam flange, so that the trolley will properly sit on the beam.
Tighten the nuts against the washers.
Insert the safety pins that are provided.
