Quick Locks

Patented locking system prevents lateral movements on shafts or spindles.

Now you can lock any spool or similar object in-place quickly and easily, preventing it from sliding on the shaft or spindle. Rugged, all-metal device slips over the shaft and automatically locks wherever you leave it. That's all there is to it - no tools required, there's nothing to set.

When used in conjunction with a drive plate, Quick-Locks also facilitates rapid spool removal.
