The HINGE - LOK™ Plus can be used with both connventional pipe handling and mechanized pipe handling systems. The specially designed removable pipe separators allow the same HINGE - LOK™ Plus to be used for various sizes of pipe and assemblies, elleminating the need for client to stock various sizes of HINGE - LOK™ handling systems.
