Panel Plating Rack Cam-lock

The cam-lock 10, shown in Figs. 1 and 2, is a quick panel holding device with an evenly distributed physical contact at the non- usable area of the panel for a better current distribution. It provides the least interference to the hot chemical plating solution without panel surface damage.

Cam 10, one of which is shown, are aligned accurately in a closed position by a common handle 11 for a one hand operation with titanium spring clip 13 below the cams. This allows the panel 15 to touch at all times the spring clip 13 but be locked into position by the cams by rotation of the handle for a firm physical contact, without the cam loosing its grip through vibration. As an added feature, the spring clip 13 has a pressure adjustment screen 14 to "fine tune" needed spring pres when needed.
