Hinged bolt fasteners provide a flexible joint for belts operating over small pulleys. Because the joint is easily separated by simply removing the hinge pin, entire belt sections may be added or eliminated.
Designed as a compression fastener,the bolt hinged model is fastened to the belt ends with high strength bolts. These compress the plates into the belt cover. Additional holding capabilities is provided by the fastener teeth that imbed in the belt without damage to the belt carcass.
This combination distributes the splice tension across the entire plate width, while the teeth secure the fastener into the belt carcass to resist pull-out.
