Rod Clamps (Catheads) are cast malleable iron clamps used with smooth or deformed 1/4” rod to tie forms. The rod is clamped securely by a bolt or nut/bolt combination. Nail holes are provided to affix the clamp to the wales. Rod tighteners are also available.
This RC-22 Form Clamp is designed for use with a pencil rod or other similar mild steel bar. The Form Clamp is especially useful when unusual forming conditions exist, such as battered walls or walls of varying thickness.
The safe working load of the Form Clamp is dependent on the setscrew being properly tightened and the pencil rod being bent 90° at the back of the clamp.
