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.
Place the clamp insert under the shoulder of the rib at the desired location. Position the clamp by rolling it over the rib and snap over the insert. Tighten the flanged bolts at the base of the clamp until they seat tightly to the clamp body. The bolts will engage the divots in the K Grip insert.
A mounting bolt is provided with K Grip and can be purchased separately (in various lengths) for the K Grip Mini.
