Nylon Plastic Adjustable Levers with Push Button

Today we're introducing you to our series WN 303 Nylon Plastic Adjustable Levers with Push Button. These levers have steel components, come in tapped and blind bore types, and are available in inch and metric sizes. The WN 303 series is just one of a variety of push button adjustable levers that we will be adding to our product line in the coming weeks.


Patented and made in the USA, these components are the result of modern industrial design. The handle is glass fiber reinforced thermoplastic with molded-in metal insert, and is available in black, orange or gray. The insert and spring are steel with a black oxide finish. The push button, also available in black, orange or gray, is nylon plastic with a screw made of stainless steel.

These RoHS compliant levers are ideal for use where parts have to be clamped in a confined space or in a particular lever position. The insert is connected to the lever via serrations which can easily be disengaged. Pulling the lever upward disengages the serrations, allowing it to be swiveled to the ideal clamping position. On releasing the lever, the serrations automatically re-engage.

Special bores, threads, drilled and pinned studs are available upon request. For certain minimum quantities, special colors are also available upon request. A version with stainless steel components, series WN 303.1, is also offered.

See all our adjustable levers in Section 1 of our online catalog.

AN 7870.1 Stainless Steel Square Flange Bearings

In honor of Valentine's Day, we're looking at our new AN 7870.1 Stainless Steel Square Flange Bearings, another series of quality parts in our new complete line of conveyor components.  Flange bearings are typically used to support a rotating shaft or tube as part of a conveyor construction.

The metric-sized, RoHS compliant bearings have a flanged housing and double sealed through-hole ball bearing made of stainless steel.  We offer a variety of other types of flange and pillow block bearings, which you can see in Section 17 of our online catalog.

Why flange bearings for today's featured product? Because we love them, like all the beautifully engineered components in our product line!
