Huck BobTail®

Designed to overcome inherent weaknesses with standard lockbolts, the BobTail has no pin-tail so there is no pin-break or waste material to collect and dispose of or potential corrosion issues post installation. The low-noise, low-maintenance tooling can be used for both installing and removing fasteners with a smooth, shock-free, speedy installation sequence i.e. two seconds for a 16mm diameter fastener - twice as fast as any other large-diameter lockbolt on the market. So there is no torque or impact transferred to the operator.
