Handwheel Safety


The safety clutch allows the wheel to remain stationary while the shaft turns freely. A clutch is supplied when it is needed in the “pull” position. A slight “pull” on the wheel will engage serrations inside the clutch this inturn forms a positive engagement with the shaft.

When the wheel is released automatically it returns to the stationary position relative to the shaft. The clutch can also be installed in reverse which will engage with a “pushing”. The “pushing” engagement should be used with caution because it can be engaged a lot easier then the “pull”.


The fold-a-way handle leaves an unobstructed surface because of the safety pocket and rear finger grips gives the operator unique control. This is a useful function for a wide-range of applications.
