Loc-Down® System

The Mitee-Bite Loc-Down® System was designed to be a programmer’s and operator’s dream for quickly and easily securing small to large aerospace parts. Its compact design allows for tighter pattern on grid plates compared to other options in the marketplace saving material cost on expensive aerospace alloys.

The Loc-Down® generates high holding force and provides low profile “out of the way” clamping allowing programmers to be very creative. Permits aggressive machining wihtout tooling interference or apply forces that would influence part, intended to streamline production for the Aerospace Industry.

  • Ideal for grid plates, tombstones and custom applications
  • 100% Heat Treated Stainless Steel
