Using Hang-It™ Clamps with Large S Hooks

Spanwell’s industrial (large) S Hooks are easy to hang when there is a pipe or a rod readily available at your site. What do you do if you are in an all-beam environment?

We help you solve that problem easily with our patented Hang-It™ Clamp. The Spanwell Hang-It Clamp is designed to hold all three sizes of our large industrial S Hooks in locations where only beams are present. Here are photos of two typical applications of S Hooks and Hang-It Clamps working together.

The Clamp will fit any flange thickness that is ¾” wide or less. Our Hang-It Clamps allows the S hook to hang in many different positions.

Additionally, it’s very important that you use the proper size Hook for the job. The lower throat opening of the 9” S Hooks is 3”, the 12” S Hook is 4” and the 14” S Hook is 5”. (See Extra Large S Hooks — Heavy Duty Hooks for an illustration).

Concentrate the load in the center or “saddle” of the lower part of the S Hook. Remember that Spanwell S Hooks are not load or lifting hooks; they are organizational devices. To safely hang and load hooks, use our Hang-It™ Telescopic Rod.

You can buy the Hang-it Clamp and the Hang-It™ Telescopic Rod directly from our online store. These are both made in the U.S.A. as our extra-large S Hooks and .the complete line of industrial Air (Pneumatic) Tools.
