- INSPECTION AND EXAMINATION OF CLAMP BEFORE USE.

- The clamp must be examined immediately if it has been subject to an abnormal load or shock. It is recommended that such an examination is made by an authorised service agent.
- Unauthorized parts may be dangerous and will invalidate the warranty.
- Note! Please see the Definition of ‘inspection’ and ‘examination’ below. Inspection:
- Looking at the clamp for defects and checking the clamp for any signs of weakness. This is much more than a check but does not require any part of the clamp to be dismantled other than removal from the beam.
- Verification that the clamp can safely continue in service. An examination is more thorough than an inspection.
- Always lubricate threads and hinged parts before storing the clamp.
