Double Clevis Screw Jack

Double Clevis Jacks are used when it is necessary to move a load through an arc, such as tracking antennas, hinged doors or air dampers. Machine Screw and Ball Screw Jacks from 1 ton to 15 ton capacities can be supplied with double clevis mounts. One clevis is mounted on the end of the lift shaft and the other clevis is welded to a heavy duty stem cover, which is welded to the housing. Double clevis designs are available with optional accessories such as boots, motor mounts, right-angle reducers, motors, encoders and rotary limit switches.

To check column strength limitations for each application, use the extended pin-to-pin dimension and the column strength chart on pages 30 and 68.
NOTE: Mounting hardware for double clevis jacks should be specified as heat treated alloy steel clevis pins with at least 100,000 psi ultimate tensile strength.

Double clevis jacks used horizontally will have reduced column strength and life. For most horizontal applications, Nook recommends the use of an Electric Cylinder (contact Nook Engineering for more information).
