SECO introduced the Claw Series Quick-Release and Ball-and-Socket pole clamps and data collector/controller cradles. The all-metal Claw series streamlines the design of the new cradles to fit the body of a collector/controller snugly with simple, comfortable locking on the bottom of the cradle. Both cradles and clamps are manufactured of corrosion-resistant anodized aluminum and feature stainless steel clamp screws with non-jamming coarse threads designed for years of service in the field. The Claw line also features a new "anti-crush" function that locks up both the cradle and/or 1.25-inch diameter pole when tight, but the locking function is limited to reduce the risk of inadvertently causing damage to sensitive and expensive equipment. The Claw series has two distinct model types: Quick-Release and Ball-and-Socket Cradle and Clamp. The Quick-Release model's cradle can be used with existing SECO 5198-Series Open Pole Clamps or can be used with a new 5200-150 Claw Pole Clamp (for 1.25-inch diameter poles only). The Ball-and-Socket Cradle and Clamp is sold as a complete solution and is operationally identical to the existing SECO 5199-Series, with nearly unlimited and fully customizable range of motion. The Ball-and-Socket Cradle, by itself, is fully compatible with existing SECO 5199-Series clamps and can be purchased separately to complete a custom setup for pole, vehicle interior or ATV mount applications.
