(2) For belts operating over small pulleys-such as in construction equipment and road machinery - Flexco Bolt Hinged fasteners are strong, dependable and easy-to-install. And for applications requiring frequent belt-length alterations, the joint can be seperated simply by removing the hinge pin.
Designed as a compression fastener, Bolt Hinged is fastened to the belt ends with high tensile strength bolts. These compress the plates in the belt cover. Additional holding capability is provided by the fastener teeth that inbed in the belt without damage to the belt carcass. So splice tension is distributed across the entire plate width and teeth secure the fastener to resist pull-out.
