By now, you have probably seen or heard of the FordLogan Colonel Clamp, either online or on social media. And you are asking yourself, what is all the hype about? Why should I care about with the Colonel Clamp?
Well, let me tell you it will change your life! And not only yours but the life of your installers.
HOW CAN I MAKE SUCH A BOLD STATEMENT?
You sell FordLogan cages. Your customers like them—they have an aesthetic appeal. The cages look the same on both sides, and they are reasonably priced.
However, you receive grief from your installers because the wire panels are a pain in the you know what to put together.
As the manufacturers of FordLogan we have heard your grumbles, and we acted!
THE BIRTH OF THE COLONEL CLAMP
Our R&D department went to work to develop a simpler way to assemble our cages. It not only makes Fordlogan woven wire mesh cages easier to install but saves you time and money. What could be better?
If you have big hands and have assembled a FordLogan Woven Wire cage, you more than likely know a few curse words. (BTW—we apologize for assisting in your colorful vocabulary.)
With the old system, to make a panel-to-panel connection, the bolts had to weave through theBolt Through panel to panel connection
wire mesh and the vertical frames—a very tight working situation! You had to maneuver inside the mesh and the framing all at the same time. Although this process worked for over 100-years, we realize it wasn’t the easiest.
But, with the Colonel Clamp we eliminated all the needless frustration and, thankfully, minimized the flashy language.
BUT, WHAT EXACTLY IS THE COLONEL CLAMP?
The FordLogan Colonel Clamp consists of two black c-shaped clamps, two ¼” x 1-1/4” carriage bolts, and two ¼” flanged hex nuts.
HOW IS IT INSTALLED?
- Secure two wire mesh panels in the base shoe
- Place one clamp on the outside of the panel and the other on the inside of the panel connection
- Insert the carriage bolts through the Colonel Clamp holes and the wire mesh panels
- Fasten each carriage bolt with the ¼” flanged hex nuts on the secured side of the wire cage
Wham! Bam! Done! It’s seriously that simple.
Note: It is recommended to have three Colonel Clamps on an 8’ panel and four on a 10’ panel
Now when you sell your next FordLogan woven wire cage, not only will you make your customers happy, but your installers will be over the moon.
And you’ll make more money by saving time on the installation. You can get your guys onto another project in no time.
Also, keep an eye out for more FordLogan R&D improvements. We listened and have made significant changes.
What if I told you one post can do everything? It can make corners. It can make a three-way connection and a four-way connection. What would you say?
Hold tight—there is more to come. You won’t be disappointed!
