The S-5-K Grip (“K” stands for KlipLok®), is designed to fit the KlipLok and similar profiles. Two different inserts (sold separately) compensate for exact rib dimensions.
The K Grip eliminates the large moment arm typical of some competitive clamps, and its mounting bolt sits concentrically on the seam, increasing load resistance.
Unlike other S-5! clamps, the K Grip uses side-bolts rather than setscrews for attachment. The flanged-head bolts also prevent over-compression of the seam and eliminate the need for calibrated tensioning.
The K Grip also comes in a mini version. It is smaller than the (standard) K Grip and has only one side-bolt.
Rigorous load testing is performed on all S-5! clamps. Negative load normal-to-seam testing (pull-up) is performed on all Mini clamps, and parallel-to-seam testing (drag load) is performed on all standard clamps.
K Grip mounts a variety of utilities, and solar to Klip-Lok® and similar profiled metal roofs.
For snow retention & super heavy duty applications, see S-5-KHD.
K Grip Snow is available for use with S-5-KHD and ColorGard assemblies. The only difference is the location of the top bolt hole. Be sure to check out the many other features on the clamp overview page.
