Key Clamps are used in conjunction with galvanised steel tubing. The Key Clamps are secured to the tube by means of hexagon socket set screws, which are tightened using an allen key or ratchet spanner to establish a firm lock between the clamp and the tube. The sharpened edges of the socket set screws effectively 'bite' into the surface of the tube creating a solid connection
