Model AST-S

Locking Type

The Model ASTS is the same as the Model AST with the exception that it incorporates a “LockClosed” feature which facilitates attaching to the beam.  Developed primarily for lifting, turning and stacking lightweight beams and structural shapes. The horizontal shackle permits a beam to be lifted with the web in a near horizontal position by placing the clamp on the load with the shackle positioned over the web, and between the flanges. With a beam lying in a horizontal position, and the clamp placed with the shackle over-hanging the flange, the beam can be lifted, turned 90 degrees, and raised in a vertical position.
