Sturdy hinged construction makes Flexco Bolt Hinged fasteners ideal for applications that use smaller pulleys but still require a high-strength, dependable splice. A choice of sizes accommodate belts from 1/4" (6 mm) to 5/8" (16 mm) thick. For belt conveyor applications subject to frequent length adjustments, the Bolt Hinged fastener is easy to install – and re-install. The joint can be separated simply by removing the hinge pin. On-site installation requires hand or power tools. Flexco's exclusive piloted bolt also simplifies installation and holds fastener plates firmly in place. For added strength and pull-out resistance, specially formed teeth penetrate deep into the belt carcass without damaging carcass fibers.
